i know this sounds silly but have you turned it completely off and turned it on again. sometimes the win 7 doesnt load properly when first loaded but after restarting the computer it will start working.

Look at what?
Expert:  Robert M. replied 1 year ago.

if you can get to the settings by right clicking on the start menu and selecting settings

you can then select system and recovery

that has some repair options including the ability to put it back to windows 7

if you cant get there you need a win 10 boot disk

you can reinstall the software from a flash drive using the instructions from this page
http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-install-windows-10-technical-preview-from-a-flash-drive/
you can get the actual iso download to use to make the flash drive on this page
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
using that flash drive you can re install the entire operating system.

I'm doing this from an iPad. How do I use a flash drive from here?
Expert:  Robert M. replied 1 year ago.

than you will have to go the boot disk method.

this page lets you download a program that will create a bootable flash drive with windows 10 on it.

.

make sure that you select the method for instaliing on another machine. and you would have to use another computer to create the flash drive. i am sorry but there is just no other way to do it other than setting the computer back to the windows version it originally came with in factory condition with everything else wiped out.
