    So I opened up my case to pull out and put back in my RAM stick (one of two) and now whenever I boot my computer I get this error

    error:unknown filesystem
    Entering rescue mode
    Grub rescue>

    So I googled a fix and tried using commands and this happened

    grub rescue> ls
    (hd0) (hd0,msdos1)
    grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/root/grub

    Then nothing happens so I'm like great and then I move on to the next step which is insmod normal and I get

    error:unknown filesystem

    I have not ever tried to install a second os on any of computers so this is not a dual boot or anything just a regular old win 10 pc but I'm afraid I ****ed up, do I have any other choice than re-installing from an external usb (which I've never done so I'd rather not have to do)

    Why? There must have been a problem for you to take the time to open the case and remove a stick of RAM.
