Laptop won't work after windows 10 install.

Hi, I was recently given a laptop that had windows 8 and I wanted windows 10. I downloaded the windows 10 installer and left it to download overnight. Ever since the laptop will not go past the loading screen upon booting up. I have tried the repair settings, all of which do not work.

Is there any way I can reset it? At this point I'd happily have windows 8 on it..

Check your C drive and look for a folder called "Windows.old.

How did you download an install Win 10. Did you pay for it as it is no longer free.
