windows failed to start- winload.exe corrupt or mi

Hi every1 I've posted here before. Seems I've run into the same problem... again 5 months later!
I have this msg when turning on lenove g50. windows failed to start-

The message shown is "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: File: \windows\system32\winload.exe status: 0xc000000f".

I tried to wipe my LP clean by using onekeyrecovery. I firstly did an image backup...but on USE drive u knoe the really heavy ones. So even wen I try switching use to boot woesnt work. How can I reboot it ...
Also this is the 2nd time this has happened n this is my mums laptop . I just don't understand why it happens the same thing happened last time, about a minute or so in wipes lpbis being restoresd to factory default I get a quick msg saying there's an error. So I have no choice but to switch the LP off even though it warns not to. But what am I supposed to do if there's an error.
Im going to try and get the backed up image file onto a disk. Insha-Allah (God willingly),it will work. done this before n it didn't so I'm praying it does this time. Last q, if any1 can answer please.
I need something digital so I work online, does anybody here recommend any kind of tablets or r they just not worth it? I now have destroyed 3 laptops. One the repair shop I take its few years back they still have it as the job receipt has been lost so we can't claim it back even though its ours! My other laptop the one I tried restoring , is note beyond repair. After about a few months of trying to get the serial number I managed to than spill tea on it now it doesn't work. I'm wandering if I should try n buy a tablet. Ovbs than decide out of the 2 remaining laptop which can afford to fix.. tablets r ridiculously expensive. But if I have 2 already expensive laptops which I didn't pay for is a tablet worth it. Im a designer and writer currently out of work so its definete needed especially wen it comes to updating resumes and art portfolios..
JUST READ THROUGH POST, SO MANY TYPOS..typing from mobile apoligies if its hard to read
