  1. [help] computer won't boot up after attempted update


    During an update I lost power. When I rebooted later it did a disk scan so I let it run. And today it won't boot up. Sometimes when I try I get a black screen with just a cursor, sometimes I get a blue screen with a link to Microsoft's stopcode help page and the error code ntsf_file_system. I went into the settings and the bios to try to do a factory reset. So far nothing works. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Laptop went black and won;t reboot

    Hi Andree,

    Hardware and software conflict is one of the possible reasons why you're experiencing black screen. Sometimes, it is also because of hardware failure. To get this issue fixed, we suggest that you
    boot into Safe Mode by following these steps:

    • Turn off your computer 3 times while booting. Windows should automatically boot to the Recovery Environment after 3 unsuccessful attempts in a row.
    • Once you are within the Recovery Environment, select Troubleshoot, and then
      Advanced options, then Startup Settings, and
      Restart
      . When it restarts, you should see a number of options. Press 5 or F5 for
      Safe Mode with Networking.
    Once your computer is in Safe Mode, please follow the workaround provided on this
    link. Simply select the similar case that you're experiencing to show the troubleshooting steps.

    Let us know how it works.

    computer won't boot but has power

    Kursah, that 6 steps are granted it always boots at the 6th step (sometimes at the 4th) and I have to remove the ethernet cable every time otherwise I'll have to do countless steps, that's a fact. I do not have Wake On Lan set.
     
  4. [help] computer won't boot up after attempted update

    System restore failed and now my computer won' t boot at all

    Hi Bjørn,

    To address this concern, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    Method 1:

    Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner, USB (universal serial bus) drives, etc...) except mouse and the keyboard and then boot up. If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the
    piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.

    Method 2:

    Perform a Startup repair from Advance boot option


    • Boot your computer using a Windows 10 CD/ DVD or System Repair Disc.

    • Select the correct time and keyboard type.

    • Click on Repair your computer in the lower left corner.

    • Select Troubleshoot from the Choose an option screen.

    • Click on Advanced options in the Troubleshoot screen.

    • Click on Startup Repair from the Advanced Options screen.

    • Next, choose the operating system.

    • Windows 10 will look for problems on hard drive(s) and verify that all required files are intact.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
