    Failing to boot first time


    My Mum's sent me a video of her Windows 10 PC booting and what appears to happen is the first time it loads the blue recovery screen which says "It looks like Windows didn't load correctly" and then she clicks on the left button and it boots fine or sometimes after she types in her password on the Windows login screen it just reboots.

    Last time I was over there I noticed her C: drive was very low on space (181MB I think), so I re-partitioned her drive and she had 20 or 30GB free after that and I was able to do the Windows updates so she's running the latest version but maybe something got corrupted when she was low on space? I'm going over there again today, so if anyone has any suggestions of things to try please let me know. I'll be back there in a week or so anyway, so even if you're reading this after today please still share your advice.

    :)

  2. query about speed of boot time

    Hello,

    Please be informed that, if there are many startup items on the desktop, it will take time to boot up to the desktop screen. It is the ideal time to boot up.

    Also, suggest you to run the system maintenance troubleshooter.

    Its a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with system.

    Refer these steps:

    1. Press Windows key +X, select
    Control panel.


    2 . Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    3. Click on troubleshooting and click on the
    view all option on the left panel.

    4. Run the System Maintenance troubleshooter.

    Do let us know the status of your concern. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    Failing to boot first time

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
