Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. This is possibly due to a corrupt Windows system file. The quickest way to resolve it would be to restore it back to factory using the NOVO key. Restart the computer using that key and it should get you into a recovery menu. Let me know if you need further assistance.
