No matter how advanced an operating system gets, it does have a tendency to fail. Windows might now load, or maybe it loads fine but crashes a lot. Either way, this shall require to be fixed and we provide ways to repair your Windows 10.
Method 1: Use Windows 10 Startup Repair
If Windows 10 is unable to boot up and takes you to the login screen or the desktop, your first step should be to use Startup Repair.
- Navigate to the Windows 10 Advanced Startup Options menu. On many laptops, hitting F11 as soon as you power on will get you to the Windows 10 Advanced Startup Options. Booting off an install disk and hitting Next then Repair offers a secondary option.
Click on “Troubleshoot” and then on “Advanced Options“
- Click on “Startup Repair”
Windows will take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to attempt to fix the problem. If you don’t actually have a startup problem, it will also say it can’t fix the problem.
Method 2: Use Windows Restore
- Get to Windows 10’s Advanced Startup Options menu.
- Click on “System Restore” and the system shall reboot.
- Select your username and enter the password.
Method 3: Perform a Scan Disk
Your Windows 10 problems may stem from a corrupt file. If you can boot into the operating system — even if you have to boot into safe mode — you should perform a file scan to check for problems.
- Run Command Prompt with Administrator rights in your windows
- Type sfc /scannow at command prompt and hit Enter. The scan will take a while; it should fix any corrupted files it finds.
Method 4: Reset Windows 10
If you want to get a clean start, free from rogue software and drivers, you usually don’t need to do a full install. Instead, Windows 10 provides a built-in reset feature which takes your computer back to the way it was before you had any software, special devices or data preloaded.
Method 5: Reinstall Windows 10
If all else fails and you can’t even reset your Windows computer, you can reinstall the OS entirely. You won’t even need an activation number or any proof of purchase, either. Just make sure you have more than 4GB of space available, as that’s how much space the file you’ll download takes up. Here’s how to reinstall Windows 10:
