  1. Was forced to update the software and now stuck in a boot loop


    I have 2 laptops. This has both happened to them...one about a month ago and now yesterday with this one. They are work laptops that I only use when I travel. When I turn them on they have to update Windows since it's been a while maybe 30 days since they've been on a network. I'm sure bc it had been a while, the update yest took an hour. When it finally completed and restarted the cptr, it's stuck in a boot loop.


    I didn't install any software or hardware. All I did was restart the cptr once the Windows Update window came up and said I needed to restart. Stuck in boot loop. Startup repair and restore don't work.


    Same thing happened with first laptop. Luckily I had this second for work...now I'm out 2.


    Please tell me when a MS service tech can come to my house and troubleshoot the laptops.

    :)

    Was forced to update the software and now stuck in a boot loop

    Windows 10 stuck in diagnostics loop

    Laptop : Sony vaio Model number : SVF152125NB Running O.S : dual boot (Windows 10 and Ubuntu)

    After the last update (probably at June 2018, I don't remember the exact update name/ID) from Windows, my pc is stuck in the Infinite loop of "diagnosing your PC ".

    I tried with going into recovery mode but using that method also ends up in this loop.

    After this issue I am using Ubuntu by using force shut down method. And turn on which results in grub option.

    Anyone pls suggest me the solution !!
