    System won't boot

    Good morning,

    I have a recently acquired Lennovo G510s running Win8.1 - this morning, after having done a full shutdown last night, I was unable to get the machine to start Windows. The hard drive light was on continuously. When I logged in initially, there was a message in lower right hand corner that there were important updates waiting.
    At this point I'm recovering from a 8/10/2014 backup.
    Do you think the problem stems from the above mention MS updates?

    I'm a complete noob with 8.1
