My only Win 10 laptop is now borked too

I've got a cheap but fairly new Lenovo Windows 10 laptop for the few things I can't do on my Linux Mint boxes such as update my TomTom. The laptop only gets used a few hours use a month. It actually spends more time applying Windows updates than being used. Anyway, after the anniversary update, which seemed to work OK after several hours of updating and rebooting, now refuses to boot up. It just sits there showing one of those busy rotating circles, no message or anything else. Left it like that overnight and it still hadn't moved on. Powered off, rebooted and same again. The computer is now effectively dead. Thanks Microsoft.
