  1. Win 10 crashes - not even safe mode works


    Hi everyone!

    I'm trying to get an HP Pavillion laptop with Win 10 to start properly. What happens is that I reach the login screen, it accepts the login and says "Welcome", but after 10 min of trying to actually reach the desktop, it crashes and a fault message shows saying that "Windows couldn't start properly".


    I've entered troubleshooting and worked through all options without any success.

    * Startup repair --> PC crashes (message as above) and reboots.

    * System recovery --> PC counts up towards 60% recovery before crashing and rebooting. Did this with the option of keeping my files chosen.

    * Starting in safe mode (both with and without network access) --> PC crashes and reboots

    * Starting rollback to earlier version --> PC says "not possible", and sends me back to troubleshooting menu.

    * Starting with command prompt --> PC crashes and reboots.


    I haven't tried a full system recovery yet since I would like to try everything before that in order to save some files on the PC that I haven't backed up yet.


    No clue to what has happened. PC was running veeeery slow before this and it also had a full battery discharge recently. Battery seems fine right now. I don't know which update was done since it's set to do that automatically.


    Any ideas?

    app crashes but not in safe mode

    Hello Mahmoud,

    When an app is working in safe mode and it crashes when your PC is in normal mode, it means that there's a software conflict or problem that's causing it to crash. To better assist you, kindly answer the following:

    • Have you recently installed a new app? We suggest that you uninstall the new app, and check if it helps resolve your concern.
    • Do you have any other antivirus software installed on your PC? We suggest that you turn off any antivirus software installed on your PC, and see if you were able to run the app without any issues.
    • Does it happen to a specific app only (the app mentioned above)? We suggest that you contact the software developer, or post in their forum for better assistance.

    Please let us know if the issue is resolved or you need any further assistance.
