    Hey all!
    I was using my pc when the power adapter shifted and disconnected from the outlet. Upon securing the power cord and turning on the computer, Windows eventually directed me to an automatic repair screen, saying Windows could not automatically fix the problem. So far I've tried restarting pc, system restore, startup repair, and a Windows reset. After waiting for the Windows reset, I received a message saying the reset failed and nothing changed. Pretty much at a loss for what to do, any help is appreciated! Not sure if it matters, but Windows 10 was installed (not update from previous OS) using a disc!

    Welcome to the Forum Seth00.

    Have you tried booting from the DVD and running the Repair option there instead?

    If your current Windows image is all ready damaged the Recovery console you are getting to without the DVD may not be able to repair things, whereas, via booting from the DVD you may be able to.

    I have the disc drive installed and ran the repair option. I tried to reset pc but got the message saying, "the drive where windows is installed is locked. Please unlock and try again." I tried system restore and got a message saying, "to use system restore, you must specify which windows installation to restore." Finally I tried startup repair but it could not repair my PC. Any idea what exactly I'm supposed to do? All help is appreciated, thanks! :)
