  1. Computer will not boot past the gigabyte menu


    So I was using my computer a few days ago and I noticed my windows explorer (not the browser but the actual UI) started having crashes when id go to the start menu and change my volume etc. Fast forward to today my computer randomly threw me into the BIOS menu (Gigabyte menu) and whenever I try to reboot my computer by pressing save and exit or anything like that it will reboot but bring me back to the menu, i tried to reboot my pc using a flash drive and its now showing the windows 10 blue logo but it loads for a while, then bluescreens giving me the Driver PNP WATCHDOG error. I don't usually have issues with my computer can anyone give advice on how to fix this issue?

    :)

    Boot menu question

    Hey guys I'm trying to run windows repair on my computer by booting my computer from the vista CD, problem is the boot menu doesn't detect my USB keyboard. Are there any options in bios that will make the mobo detect my keyboard in boot menu? I don't have an analog keyboard on hand so this problem is quite annoying. *Bang Head :banghead:

  3. No startup boot menu

    Hello Kimoefat,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    As an initial recommendation, I would suggest you to access the System configuration utility and check if the Operating System installation path for Ubuntu exists. To do so, follow the below steps.

    • Type msconfig in the search bar and select System Configuration from the search results.
    • Select the boot tab in the System configuration console to check if the installation path for Ubuntu exists.
    If it exists, next logical step is to check if the boot menu time out has been set to 0, which results in Boot menu not showing up.

    The boot menu time-out determines how long the boot menu is displayed before the default boot entry is loaded. It is calibrated in seconds. To change the boot menu time-out, use the Bootcfg
    /timeout switch. Valid values are from 0 through 999. You cannot use Bootcfg to set an indefinite time-out.

    You can run the following Run command line to set the boot menu time-out accordingly. To do so, follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt

    • Type in the following command: bootcfg /timeout 10

      timeout 10
      will set the time frame to 10 seconds
    However, if the Boot path for Ubuntu does not exist in the boot menu of System Configuration utility, I would suggest you to check if the Ubuntu is overridden by the Windows installation or if the Ubuntu installation files are corrupted.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.

  4. Computer will not boot past the gigabyte menu

    Windows stuck in automatic repair; Can't access BIOS/ boot menu

    I've changed the boot order through both BIOS and the boot manager, as my original post stated. Neither did anything, but both were functional in the past. Neither listed the windows boot manager, either. Previously, it would boot just as expected whenever
    other media was set as the first option, so I'm pretty sure there are no issues there.

    As my original post suggested, I've already tried out the steps you gave. I've gone through all the options listed in the boot menu, UEFI or not.

    My BIOS and boot menu settings were at their defaults when all of this started, so that's been tried already, if those are what you're referring to.
