    So you mention 'I tried to install windows' so do you have a backup of all files docs safe games photos etc and all the apps to try do a clean install?

  • Hi,

    Try to reset system to check the result at first. Note backup your important data in advance.

    If no help, I am afraid that you need to use an installation media to execute a clean install, it’s convenient to create an installation media via Microsoft media creation tool.

    Regards
