So, I started my computer up today and it said it wanted to go in to repair mode which was fine. Now, Windows 10 will not boot. I ran a hardware check by pushing F12 and going in to the sub menu. Everything came back good. After I figured out it wasn't my hardware, I moved on and I am now running dskchk on my C:/ drive.

My computer when shut down ever so often lately wouldn't shut down all the way. It would remain on after shut down and I would have to hold the button until it shut off. There wasn't any updates because it usually would go to the update screen so I don't know.

It has to be something with Windows 10.

Does anybody know how to fix this problem? I did Google it but didn't get anything I haven't tried already and it was really no help.

Thank you.

UPDATE #1 - I tried to use Windows recovery but will not let me save my files. At this point, I might have to do a full wipe which is sad. Might wait to talk to their tech people. Sucks. :-( U

    Sometimes, the easiest fix is to download and reinstall Windows 10 from ISO, keeping files. – DrMoishe Pippik Jul 12 at 2:19
  • That's what I'm doing now. I had to run out and get a 16 GB USB but I got 2 for cheap. I'm waiting for the thing to finish putting it on the stick and we will see where we at. – LokiHardcore Jul 12 at 4:05
  • Didn't work. I don't know what to do. – LokiHardcore Jul 12 at 7:03
  • Take one USB stick and make it a bootable Ubuntu drive. See tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/… If you can run from the USB drive (don't install Ubuntu on the HDD), then the issue is likely with the HDD, which can be easily replaced and Windows reinstalled. – DrMoishe Pippik Jul 12 at 18:47
  • MS has found one of the latest "updates" causing an endless reboot loop. See bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/… for issue and possible resolution. – DrMoishe Pippik Jul 12 at 19:01
