    Hi
    So about a week ago I made the decision to update to windows 10, little did I know it was going to crash my laptop. what happens is my screen won't stop flashing. The icons on my screen appear and disappear over and over and over again. It never stops. It never stayz long enough for me to click on anything.

    My question is, is there anything I can manually do, that won't erase the entirety of my hard drive, to either restore it back to windows 7 or just make windows 10 work?

    I'd really love some advice, I honestly don't want to pay to have it checked out. (I'm a poor college student)

    Press Shift and click Retart on the login screen, then on boot up, choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings. Then press the number shown to get into Safe Mode with Networking.

    If that works, then you're in Safe Mode. Once there, go to Control Panel > Device Manager. See if you can upgrade the video driver.
