Hi I've been having this same problem with my computer and I've tried downgrading my Toshiba Satellite Laptop 

to windows 7 from windows 10 and still nothing my Father and I think its something with the Hard drive but I've cleaned it several times and still it keeps coming up the only way i can get into my computer is using my windows 7 boot disk and running the (Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool) and having it scan then it ends up at my login screen 



If someone could help fix this problem and have me not keep using the boot disk I would be very greatful 


Thx. Ian

Did you use the following to revert back to Windows 7?
Was this the upgrade offered up to the 29th of July?
Was the upgrade installed for over thirty days?
Go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery and select Go back to Windows 7


Are you receiving an error message stating that there is no bootable device?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
