In theory yes...

But it depends on make/model how you do it...; so post make/model details and folks can/will advise...

Also - be very aware that when you do a factory reset it will erase "all" your personal files etc... So if there is anything you would like to save - first... - post back for a "how you can do it..."

Also what exactly where you doing when it went wrong?

And can you boot even now into safe-mode - press F8 as the system boots up?

✔ Best Answer
If you can boot to Safe mode, you can run a System Restore to a date wheret he machine was running without losing any of your files or programs (except programs and updates added since the last restore point was made.

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