Hello, please help! :(

I updated my laptop last night (Asus X202E, running Windows 10) and when i tried turning it on today, it wouldn't boot. The Asus home screen says Preparing Automatic Repair then changes to Diagnosing your PC then either shuts down on its own, or goes to the Recovery screen where it says that Automatic Repair was unable to repair the pc. I tried Refresh, but it says the drive where windows is installed is locked. Reset says unable to reset PC, because a required drive partition is missing. I tried running chkdsk through the command prompt but it would fail. What can I do? :( My thesis and design files are here and I don't have backups of everything. Thank you!

Hi rainsager
Can you access screen like this? If you can you could try clicking on System Restore and checking if you can restore your system to previous state.

Does chkdsk give any error message?

If you can't do a Reset, then there's a problem.

1)  Test the hardware (here's some bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

You can run MemTest86 (not 86+) on a UEFI system, but will have to change some settings to run the HDD diagnostics.

2)  Then attempt to restore from recovery media.  I suggest deleting ALL partitions when using this method, and let the installer recreate them.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
