Windows 10 update never ends

I have a VTA1005XB tablet which I have not used much after buying it from FRY's electronics last year. I just turned it on this week and it downloaded updates for a day or so and started an update process. 2+ days passed since then and when I turn on the screen by pressing power button, I am still watching the white dots dancing in a circular pattern on a soft blue screen.

This can not be normal, despite how low powered this dang thing is. Ayyone encountered such problem. And how did you solve it ?

Hi Mel Burslan,

Thank you for your patience. Please try to hold down the power button for about 30 seconds until it shuts down. Then please boot the device back up and let me know if that solves the issue? If not we may have to perform a factory reset or maybe reinstall Windows.


To perform the factory reset you will have to an OTG cable and a USB keyboard. To boot into the Recovery mode please hold down the Power and Volume up button for about 20 seconds or until the device boot into a Blue screen with four options.
