The message that the computer did not start correctly Windows 10 usually appears at the stage of loading the operating system. Windows itself starts automatic repair, but it does not always work. Luckily, you are not the only one with this problem, which means there is quite a lot of information about it. Next, we will deal in more detail with the causes of the failure and how to fix it.
The computer did not start correctly
It seems that the Windows system did not boot correctly.
The system displays a similar message if you have already tried several times to boot the computer, but to no avail. Something prevented the operating system from loading correctly, hence the malfunction.
Usually, one of the following causes Windows to crash when starting:
- improper shutdown of the computer;
- damage to fastboot mode;
- various failures of the operating system;
- driver failure.
How to fix the problem?
There are many reasons, and therefore ways to fix the failure. The best option is to just try one by one until the system starts working correctly.
Things to try:
- Automatic recovery on boot . To do this, you need to click on “Advanced Options” – “Troubleshooting” – “Advanced Options” and select “Startup Repair”.
- Use restore point . If automatic creation of restore points is enabled in the system, you can easily roll back to a previous backup. You need to do everything the same as in the previous method, but in the last menu select “System Restore”, and then – the point to which the return will be performed.
- Run System File Checker . To do this, in the “Advanced options” section of the recovery mode, click “Troubleshooting”. Next, go to the “Advanced Options” – “Download Options” section. Select “Enable Safe Mode with Command Prompt”. Then we enter 3 consecutive commands (after the first two you need to wait): sfc /scannow , dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, shutdown -r .
The problem may be hardware in nature and also appear due to the hard drive, power supply, or even the motherboard. It’s a good idea to first try plugging in another drive with a known working Windows distribution and see if it works. The same HDD or SSD should be connected to another PC. So you either confirm or refute the idea that there may be a hardware failure.
