    Win10 factory reset failed 3 times. Stuck on startup loop now


    I tried to reset my computer today after 3 years of using it without any sort of re-formatting, and all three times the reset got stuck on 65% before a blue screen appeared and said that an error occurred. It would then give me the options of either:
    a) returning back to my windows 10, with nothing changed
    b) Trying to reset again
    c) advanced options.

    I tried the reset 3 times, and after the last try failed I went to advanced options to look at other ways to approach the issue, such as checking if there were any restore points that I could restore to (which there were none).

    After that didn't work, I clicked on the first option of just returning back to my windows 10, and that was when it would not start up anymore.

    My computer now is stuck on a infinite loop of the launch screen of the ASUS logo, it flashes, then goes onto the second ASUS logo, and this is all it does, go round and round.

    I tried to boot it on F8, F9 (the ASUS recovery button), and the 'delete' button. NOTHING WORKS.

    I finally tried F2, which led me to the BIOS page? And I clicked on the boot tab and disabled the first boot configuration option, and still to no avail. It returned to looping, and when trying F8, F9, after disabling that BIOS option, and it still won't do anything but loop.

    Any ideas?

    Obviously you have another computer that is working.
    The following is to do a Clean Install Of Windows 10.
    Use the link below and download the current Windows 10 ISO file > then burn it to a bootable media ( DVD or USB ).
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    Note : make sure you select the same language, and bit version as your Asus computer.

    Take the bootable media to your Asus computer > go to the Bios ( F2 key ) > set the boot order to CD/DVD or USB (depending on which bootable media you are using ) > insert the media > restart computer.
    Installation will begin.
    You will be asked for a product key. Click the Skip option ( or a "I do not have a product key" option ) and continue.
    Activation should be automatic.
