  1. Cannot start windows after power outage


    There was a momentary power flicker at my apartment while I was not home as a result of a storm. When I go to start my PC, it attempts automatic repair before going to a blue screen that says "Startup Repair couldn't fix your PC", and offers to either shut down or go to advanced options. In advanced options I have tried simply continuing and restarting but those do not work, and in troubleshooting I have attempting resetting but it says there's an issue and it cannot reset. Then in advanced options I see "startup repair", "startup settings", "command prompt", "uninstall updates", "UEFI Firmwar

    Power Outage

    Hi there, I just had a power outage and i'm worried that my windows installation will be damaged. I have an SSD. Should there be any steps I should do now? What should I check?

  3. Power outage caused programs to disappear and/or become disfunctional

    Hello,

    There are few factors that can contribute to the issue you are encountering. Power outages can result in data loss, corruption of folders/files, and programs not functioning.

    To assist you further, kindly provide more details by answering the following questions:

    • Which browser are you using to check the passwords and favorites section? Provide the list of browsers where you encountered the concern.
    • Have you tried using another account to verify if the programs are still missing on your program list?

    There is a possibility that the drive index has been corrupted. We highly suggest that you check your hard drive and scan for errors by following these steps:

    • Open This PC on File Explorer and locate your hard drive.
    • Right-click and choose Properties.
    • Under Tools tab, click on Check Now button.

    After scanning the hard drive, hidden files and folders, as well as lost data can be restored.

    Additionally, we advise running the System File Checker as another way for us to check or scan for data corruptions in Windows system files that can be affected by the power outage. To do so, follow the steps on this article:

    Using System File Checker in Windows 10.


    Let us know of any details pertaining to your concern.
