    Windows won't boot after changing regedit

    I was following a simple guide on how to make shortcut arrows disappear using regedit. I followed what it said and restarted my computer. The PC was turning itself off and on and off and on. I cut the power and restarted it - the PC is staying on but windows will not boot! I just have a black screen.

    What do I do?! Please help

    edit: I cannot access the BIOS either by the way. I havent been able to access my BIOS for a long time, I don't get any start screen I just get a black screen.

    You need to boot off of a Windows 10 DVD or USB to do a repair install.

    Before messing with the registry you always save the key first so you can role back dont suppose you saved it do you know what you changed?
