I Deleted Files on My Laptop, Now I Can't Reset It

November 28, 2017 at 14:30:24
Specs: Windows 10
As you can tell by the title, I deleted some files on HP Windows 10 laptop and now I cannot reset it. I was trying to free up some space on my laptop since it came with only 4 free gigabytes for me to use (which I am aware I should have checked before purchasing, and now I regret not doing so) and I tried to free up some space by getting rid of files that I didn't think I still needed. But it's been a month now and all it is useful for is searching the internet. After looking high and low for ways to reset it with commands, (etc.), my laptop refuses to reset. Anytime I try to run any admin commands, a pop-up appears saying that the file was not found. Anytime I try to reset it, it loads for about two minutes then just stops. I've tried clicking it several times, but it just doesn't update. Is it best for me to just buy another laptop? Hopefully someone can help with this problem.
P.S., my 1-year warranty has not expired yet, will it still apply after this?

Thanks, Karis

"it came with only 4 free gigabytes for me to use"

I find that hard to believe unless you bought a netbook rather than a laptop. HP Stream is an example. They're basically for internet surfing & not much more. Please post the model & model number so we can view the specs.

Download this:

Burn it to a DVD or create a bootable Flash Drive
Boot to it and do the repair (Install then repair installation)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm asking a 2nd time - Please post the model & model number so we can view the specs.

EDIT: not the operating system info, the model & model number of the netbook/notebook/laptop.

Are we to assume you deleted these files from the bin too?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If advanced boot options/repair tools do not work then look to the install disk #2 above as a way to still do the repair to system files.

Another option is to use Tweaking.com to replace the missing system files:

and do the repair.

Rapid Acces Memory (RAM) is not the same as Storage on a HDD/SSD, RAM is wiped when the PC is turned off, thats why you need a HDD or SSD to store your data on. (why else would you safe your excel workbook before turning it off...)

just saying :), GL with your laptop

i5-6600K@4.723GHz/4.623GHz cache@1.36v | 2x4GB Crucial-DDR4-2133@ 14-13-13-28 1T 2814MHz@1.345v | ASUS Z170-K | Samsung 250GB SSD 850 EVO | MSI Radeon RX 570 ARMOR 4GB@1295cc@1.058v&2050mem | VS450

The make and model number is likely to be on the underside of the machine (if it's not on the top).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
