I don't know if this is the right place to put this because I don't have a clue what's wrong with my laptop. My brother said he turned it off the other day whilst it was in the middle of upgrading and he thinks that might have done something to it. Now if I try to turn it on I get a blue screen first with some writing on but that goes after only a couple of seconds so I don't know exactly what it says. Then I get another screen that says
Windows Error Recovery
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
If Windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, startup repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. If power was interrupted during startup, choose start Windows normally.

Launch startup repair (recommended)
Start Windows normally
I've tried starting windows normally but I just get the blue screen with writing again and then back to the Windows Error recovery screen. If I launch startup repair it gives me four options. Start Microsoft Windows Repair Environment, Reinstall Windows, Advanced Options or Exit and Restart computer.
Can anyone help at all? Or should I just take it to a computer person because I don't want to make it any worse!
