    Gah, help! Laptop is just restarting over and over

    It's windows 10, it was installing some updates and I think it got interrupted when my laptop died. I plugged it in and turned it back on and it's been continuously trying to start up for about 5 hours now. I can't do anything on it, when I turn it off and on again it's doing the same thing- it just shows the loading screen then shuts off and starts loading over and over, doesn't even make it to the log in screen

    What do I doooo?

    You obviously have access to another computer, or you couldn't post your plea for help. Your next move should be to use the Media Creation Tool to create a bootable Windows 10 install flash drive which can also be used for Windows repair and recovery. Here's a tutorial on that subject: USB Flash Drive - Create to Install Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. Then, you'll need to change your boot order on the affected laptop so you can boot to the USB drive you've built. You'll start the windows 10 install process, but dive off into the "Repair your computer" section of that process on the second screen that shows up. You can try to return to a recent restore point or image backup if you have access to either (or both), or you can check out this tutorial: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums.
    This is a common enough occurrence, sadly, that you shouldn't be too terribly alarmed, and also reasonably confident that you can put your laptop back in service in an hour or two.
