    Try repairing boot records, using these steps:

    1. Start your Windows 10 machine, and quickly shut it down before it reaches or if it is at boot screen. Do this two times repeatedly.
    2. On the third time, Windows 10 will automatically display 'Your PC couldn't start properly' message. Now press Esc key for recovery options.
    3. Then under Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot option and now click Advanced options option.
    4. Under Advanced options screen, click Command Prompt.
    5. Type following commands one-by-one and press Enter key after each:





    Close Command Prompt and see if issue is resolved now.

    It’s recommended that you put the screenshots of your laptop here. So we can see the issue more clearly and provide more specific solutions.

    And what's your current OS version? If you haven't updated to 20H2, it's recommended that you update to 20H2 through CMD.

    It's also suggested that you check that whether chkdsk is used properly. Please use the right parameters and filters.

    If chkdsk is used properly but it doesn't work, you can try Change a drive letter then perform chkdsk again. Because your laptop didn’t boot, please use command diskmgmt.msc to open Disk Manager.

    If chkdsk repairs your hard drive and you can boot your laptop, the issue is solved. But if after changing the drive letter and you still cannot perform chkdsk, perhaps your hard drive is damaged. You will need a professional to have a look at your hard drive.

    DSPatrick’s solution should also be tried. Please try to remove the installed Windows update via cmd. In the link, Romeara also provides a solution which might help.
