What exactly happens on boot? Windows 10 has a built-in feature designed to compensate for the difficulty in getting to the F8 menu: after three failed boots it automatically boots into troubleshooting mode. If you get to a screen like this:



click "advanced repair options." This should load another blue screen with options including "reset" which should bring it to factory status.
 
NOTE: These will only work if you can get into the system. They will not work if you can't even get into Windows.


In Windows versions prior to 10, you should be able to...

1. Go into "Control Panel" and then click "Recovery."
2. Next click "Advanced Recovery Methods."
3. Now click "Return your computer to factory condition."

And in 10...

To do this go to "Start", then "Settings". Next choose "Update & security" and then "Recovery" Here click "Get started" and select the option you wish to use. From here just follow the on-screen instructions to restore Windows 10 back to how it was upon leaving the factory.
