HOW DO I GO BACK TO RESET MY LAPTOP TO A PREVIOUS TIME?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

WINDOWS 10, HP NOTEBOOK, HP 15-07WM

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your 15-07WM? Have you installed any updates recently?

I THINK THEY ARE SETUP AUTO

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT I HAD A SABRENT FLOPPY DISC READER/USB, AND IT WAS WORKING GREAT. TODAY, I FIND IT ON MY SHORT CUT, BUT WILL NOT SHOW UP. ALSO, THE UNIT LIGHT IS ON AND I CAN HEAR IT RUNNING, BUT CAN'T GET A DISPLAY OF THE UNIT

This will depend on if you have previous restore points if you can reset. There are a couple of ways to do it on windows 10.

Open System Restore

Search for system restore in the Windows 10 Search box and select Create a restore point from the list of results. When the System Properties dialog box appears, click the System Protection tab and then click the Configure button.

Enable System Restore

Click to enable Turn on system protection and then use the Max Usage slider to determine how much of your hard drive to use to store Restore Points — 5% to 10% is usually sufficient — and click OK. If you ever need to create a restore Point manually (just before you start messing with any system settings, for example), return to this dialog box and click the Create… button, otherwise Windows 10 will create them automatically.

Restore your PC

Whenever you want to return to a Restore Point, open the System Properties dialog box again (see Step 1), click the System Protection tab and then click the System Restore… button. Follow the on-screen instructions and select the desired Restore Point when prompted. You can also click the Scan for affected programs button before going any further, to see what might change on your PC afterwards. When you’re happy to proceed, click Next.

Just in case that restore doesnt work, you can also reset it and keep your files.

Open Reset this PC

Go to Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery and click Get started below Reset this PC.

Reset Windows 10, but save your files

On the next screen, click Keep my files and follow the on-screen instructions to reset Windows 10. You’ll see a list of apps that will be removed and be asked to confirm your choice before going any further.

Reset this PC from Safe Mode

As with System Restore, serious Windows 10 problems can prevent Reset this PC from working, but you can also run it from Safe Mode to bypass these. Follow Step 1 under If System Restore won’t work above, but instead choose Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Keep my files under Step 2.
