Ran malwarebytes on Windows 10, now won't boot

Recommended Posts

Computer, with factory installed Windows 10, had adware popups, so I installed Malwarebytes.  While it was scanning I left the computer unattended about 1 hour. When I came back to it the power button was flashing; appeared to be asleep.  I could not get it to wake with the mouse or keyboard.  I held down the power button until it powered off. After 1 minute I turned it back on and it whirrs, but nothing comes up on the monitor and the power button continues to blink.  I have tried restarting it and hitting F8 to try a SafeMode start, but it's not booting to anything - still a black screen.
