My laptop won't start up. It'll turn on and then the dealt blue screen will pop up saying that my laptop didn't start properly, restart and then go to Automatic Repair. I have restarted it six times and even tried advanced options plus troubleshooting options. I have even tried to reset my laptop (selecting keep my files) and it said it needed more room on the drive that Windows was installed on in order to do so. I haven't selected "Go back to previous version" yet, used Command Prompt or Startup Settings.
My laptop is an Acer, model Aspire 1 A114-31-C4HH. And I believe I have Windows 10.

I believe the problem is a corrupted file. I was downloading Avast Antivirus and my apps started acting up so I restarted my laptop and now it won't even let me log in.
 
NOTE: You can try this even if you don't get to the circles.

Try the following...

1. Power off the laptop.
2. Power on the laptop.
3. As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
4. Repeat this process a few times until you see the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen.
5. Now you want to let the laptop boot to the "Automatic Repair" screen.
6. Click "Advanced Options" and then select "Troubleshoot".
7. Here you want to select "Refresh your PC", if you do not wish to erase data, or "Reset your PC" to erase all data and restore your system.
8. From here just follow the screen instructions until the recovery is completed.

NOTE: You will need to get into the "Advanced Options" in order to get the "Refresh Option". This choice will keep your data, but any programs installed will be lost.

Do not do a "Reset" as that will wipe all data you have on the laptop.
