Advice please. I tried to reset Windows 10 after having prolems with Drive C ,after going through some of the procedures a notice came up saying it couldn't reset. Now nothing comes up on the screen only the Samsung name flicks on & off.
I have pressed the F4 key to no avail.
Any help, thanks.

Not knowing in advance what those problems were that moved you to "reset Windows 10".....
I can only suggest that perhaps there might actually be something wrong with your hard disk drive.

That might just be some serious system file corruption or it could be that the hard drive itself is faulty and failing.
Your first step should probably be to attempt to secure any critical data if at all possible.

I usually do this by booting the problematic system to a Linux Live Distro
There are multiple resources there, choose one that is relatively close to you geographically
After you get the ISO you can then use

ImgBurn to burn it to a DVD
Rufus to burn it to a USB ThumbDrive

Then boot your computer from that. Remain only in the Live Environment and do not physically install it on your system.
See if you can access the hard disk from the Live Environment and copy off your critical data to a reliable external resource.
