I had updates available for windows 8.1 on my laptop last night but they failed to install and then my computer tried to restart and it can up saying 'We couldn't compete the updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer' but then it stayed like that for a long time. After force restart, the same message still comes up and it's been there all morning. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series. Can someone please help? I can't get past this screen at the moment.

That is a known issue with 8.1 after a failed update, it takes forever to undo and get back to normal, you should not have forced a restart. Boot the machine with the Windows installation DVD and at the 'Install now' window use the ' Repair my computer' link. Wait until it is done, then reboot.
