    System settings closes when the 'system' option is selected


    I have just updated to windows 10 update 1903 and when when I select select 'Settings' from the Start menu and then select 'System', the System menu shows for a second and then Settings closes/crashes with no error message. This only seems to happen when 'System' is selected from the Settings menu. This occurs every time I try. I did reboot twice but nothing changed. Using the Control Panel works fine. Everything else seems to work ok so far. The machine is a Dell Optiplex 790, 16gb memory, 500gb HD, latest bios update. Is there any solution for this?

    :)

  4. System settings closes when the 'system' option is selected

    System options in Settings fail to respond..

    Hi Haseeb,

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    As a workaround I suggest you to unplug all the external devices connected to your computer, hard reboot the device and check with the status of this issue.

    If the issue still persists, try the below troubleshooting steps as the boot files of current operating system might got corrupted.

    I suggest you to download Windows 10 ISO file, create an installation media from other working computer to perform automatic repair of the computer that you are unable to boot.

    Using ISO file to perform automatic repair will allow the device to boot the system to Windows Recovery Environment and tries to repair the device.

    Step 1: Download
    Windows 10 from the below link and create media creation tool:

    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool

    Step 2: After creating the tool perform an Automatic Repair.

    I would like to inform that, if your Windows 10 is not able to boot or startup, Automatic Repair will come into action and try to diagnose and fix the issue. It will scan system files, registry settings, configuration settings and
    more and try to fix the problem on its own, automatically.

    Perform the Automatic repair:


    • When your computer starts, wait for the manufacturer logo to check the option for boot menu, it will usually be
      F12.

    • The boot menu key might differ with each manufacturer. If you are unable to find the boot menu key, you may refer the user manual.

    • Restart the computer, when the manufacturer's logo is displayed, keep pressing the
      Boot menu option key to enter the boot menu and change the boot option to
      CD\DVD ROM.

    • After you boot your computer using Windows 10 DVD, a black screen appears with gray text "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Press any key.

    • Select the correct time and
      Keyboard type
      .

    • Click Repair your computer in the lower left corner

    • Click on Troubleshooting, advanced option and then click
      Automatic repair.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
