Why won’t Windows start? Common causes

There are many factors why Windows 10 won’t turn on, as well as various solutions to these problems. Among the main causes of the Windows 10 startup error are hardware problems. As this is an operating system in advanced version, it can cause conflicts if there are some old computers that the system does not detect.

Another factor is that you have a software problem. There may be some errors on the hard drive that need to be fixed. It also happens that an application is causing problems or that the drivers or drivers have been outdated and require updating. Similarly, sometimes a blue screen appears that can occur due to incompatibility between the system and the computer, or the system and applications.

One of the main reasons is that your Windows system has a virus , therefore, we always recommend having a good antivirus , we assure you that having one will guarantee the protection and durability of your electronic devices.

Another is that when installing a new Windows system , you restarted your PC so that all the changes will be installed correctly because, in that process, something caused the BIOS and CMOS to not start as they should, causing the error when starting the operating system.

Undoubtedly, the causes may be due to problems that we did not expect , especially if you previously went through the installation process to switch to a new Windows system and this is the first time something has gone wrong.

But you should not worry , regardless of what the causes are, follow the steps that we will explain below to solve this problem easily.

What should I do if the computer won’t turn on?

The first thing to do in case the computer won’t turn on is to stay calm. Afterwards, you should start to find out what factor is causing the   Windows won’t turn on problem and try to repair it. If you are not able to solve these faults, it is advisable to take the PC to a technician to check it. However, there is a procedure you can try to fix the error.

  1. First we must solve any problem that has arisen after the update or installation of a program, for that, go to the start of your Windows
  2. In the search engine on the taskbar, place Find and fix problems’ and click on the option Find and fix problems with devices> Advanced options
  3. You will see a list of options (sometimes it is only one option), find and click on the box that says Apply repairs automatically
  4. Then click on Apply correction, an analysis will start which may take a few minutes, after that, click on ‘Apply this correction’. The last step is to click on ‘OK’ and with that we have solved a problem

After doing the above, we are going to proceed to execute a clean boot of Windows 10 , for this, follow the following steps:

  1. Start the computer as administrator, and in the search magnifier on the taskbar, type ‘msconfig’ and click on ‘System Configuration’
  2. In the tab that says ‘System Configuration Services’ click on the option ‘Hide all Microsoft services> Disable all> OK’
  3. After that close the task manager and restart the computer so that the changes are saved correctly, with these steps your PC will start the system as usual

We hope these steps will help you solve this problem, but what if after doing all this you lost some system data such as files and applications ? Well, this is very common and, therefore, we will explain how you can recover your data.

What to do if the screen goes black?

Black screen is a common error when there is an error of a Windows 10 computer not turning on or starting. In case this happens, you can try to update the screen by holding down the Windows symbol, control, capitalization, and the letter B keys, all at the same time.

Another solution, if the screen does not react, is to make a forced shutdown , this through the power button. Subsequently, you must proceed to turn on the computer again and try to log in again.

How to fix PC startup too slow – TIPS

When your Windows computer won’t start or is too slow to boot, there may be a lot of applications trying to start. Since when you log on to a computer, various applications start with when you turn on the computer. The solution to this problem is to decrease the number of applications that start when the PC is turned on.

For this, you must hold down the control, Alt and delete keys at the same time and then you must get into task manager. Then you must click on more details and all the information will be displayed. When you enter here you must look for the start tab in the upper bar and there will be a list of the applications that start when the computer is turned on.

You will also see two rows that show the status of the option, if this mark is enabled it is because it starts when the PC is turned on. The other row shows the impact this start has on power-up. At this point you must decide which application you want not to start on power-up and press disable.

Disconnect all USB devices

Another reason why Windows is slow or having trouble logging in is USB sticks. Since the start may be programmed to be done through an external storage unit. The solution in this case is to remove and disconnect from the computer all external memory , both USB and microSD.

Reassign drive letters

Similarly, you can try to fix the problem of Windows does not turn on by changing the letters of the hard disk or partition . This is done when the system has trouble reading the drive from which the system is trying to boot. Therefore, when changing the letter, the system will read another drive and must correct the error presented above. This remapping can be done through commands entered at the command prompt.

Start or turn on your PC in Safe Mode step by step

Safe mode has been programmed to try to resolve these situations. In this safe mode, no software starts automatically and only important drivers will do. This mode can be accessed in different ways depending on the version of the system. For Windows 10 computers it can be accessed by pressing the control and f8 keys .

With recovery mode

In this safe or recovery mode you can access three different options. The first is the safe mode with its limited functions and visibility with a significant reduction of things. The second has network functions in which Windows allows access to the internet in the event that drivers need to be downloaded.

The last one is the safe mode function with the command prompt , for this you have to put the cmd.exe commands. This is for advanced functions where programmers can run antivirus or safeguard personal data.

With an installation disc

The computer can also be turned on using an installation disc. It should be noted that a disk drive is required in the computer. Using this option, it is as if you installed the startup again since you have to do a programming so that it can turn on.

Recover files after Windows 10 OS restore

The easiest way to recover your files is by downloading a recovery software , there are many on the market, but here we recommend Remo File Recovery Software , this software will help you recover any file quickly.

If you don’t want to download it, you will be glad to know that there are other ways to get your files back. Windows 10 by default saves all your personal data in the ‘Documents’ folder, to recover them follow the following steps:

  1. Go to your computer’s library and click Crazy Disk (C 🙂
  2. Then, click on the ‘Program file’ folder,the folders that will appear in the window will be with a red X
  3. Select all the documents and drag them into the recovery list that is in the upper right corner of your screen
  4. A dialogue window will appear, in it press Recover

You must do this process with all the folders that contain the files of the applications that you had installed on your PC, it is a slow process, since you do everything manually, so we recommend you download the recovery software that we mentioned above. it will help even when you didn’t backup your Windows 10 operating system.
