    Sudden failure of W10 to load correctly


    The last time I started my PC what appeared was not my Desktop with about 40 icons and a full Taskbar, but a largely blank screen with only a dozen icons confined to the left of the screen. Most of my apps / programs, files and folders are not available, without digging down to find them. Start Menu Tiles have gone, although the alphabetical list looks in tact. File Explorer was not visible, but I have managed to access it so it seems I can in a clumsy way launch most of the files I have tried; and so far the few apps tried mostly work although their data seems to have gone eg. Sticky Notes.Copy History. I have not tried saved documents, media and emails yet. Emails are on my phone.

    My questions are about what to do now, to recover my system with minimum damage.I can access WinRE and have tried a Repair Reinstall without success, so are there other options in RE I should try? I have not found the Restore Points yet but on past experience do not have much confidence in them anyway. But I do have a full Disk Image Backup, created with Aomei Backupper (as I have been following advice on this site) --- it was created just after the May and then the November update so it wont have the more recent minor updates, or a number of programs / apps installed since the end of last year. Hence it could be better to try other possibilities first, if available. Advice will be very welcome.

    :)

  2. Recovery: Windows didn’t load correctly

    Hi,

    Damages within the Windows Boot Configuration can be a possible cause why you are experiencing unexpected restart or reboot and getting the message "Windows didn’t load correctly". For us to provide an effective solution, we would need you to answer the
    following questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your computer?
    • What changes have you made to your computer before this issue occurred?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you follow the troubleshooting steps provided by Yashwanth Kotakuri in this
    thread.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    Windows has not loaded correctly error


    Just upgraded a laptop of a friend from Windows 8 to Windows 10....all went smoothly, except when starting up get the message Windows has not loaded correctly......with an error message DRV - possibly IRQ with a number which she couldn't write down quick enough

    she he has tried the troubleshooting steps, but does not want to reset and lose apps or data....there is an option to recover back to Windows 8, but don't really want to do,this ' yet '

    She was unable to get into safe mode, as I have read turning off fast boot can solve this issue, or perhaps a clean boot...

    before upgrading she had had mcaffee and avast installed, I planned to uninstall mcaffee after the upgrade...

    Could anyone suggest a solution please ?

    I did a true image backup first, so that is an option also
