    Windows 10 gets stuck on loading dots.


    Story time.

    A couple of days ago my friend gave me a hard drive since I had mentioned that I dont have much space. Before this, I had two drives: an ssd, and a hard drive. The SSD contains Windows 10 OS and some files and the HDD contains most other files. I connected this new hard drive in, which, unbeknownst to me had not been wiped and booted it, to be greeted with windows 7.

    My original hard drive and this new hard drive could both be accessed, but not the SSD containing windows 10. I unconnected the new hard drive in hope that it would boot up normally with windows 10, but alas, it now becomes stuck on the windows loading screen infinitely spinning those irritating dots.

    Some added info: this SSD, to my memory, is rather full. Yet I've no clue as to how I would empty it given the current situation.

    Any replies would be nice. I'm an idiot and technologically incapable so please help.

    :)

    Windows 10 stuck in loading screen with spinning dots

    Hi,

    Windows 10 is stuck in loading screen. Here are the things that happened before it became like that:

    • I noticed that my Dell laptop is lagging so much even after restart so I checked the Task Manager and noticed that the Disk is at 100%.
    • Found out that Avast premiere is causing the Disk to be at 100% so I End Task it
    • Triggered CHKDSK upon startup in order to check if Disk is fine.
    • Upon startup Check Disk ran but it is stuck at 12% even after almost 2 hours of waiting. So need to hard reboot. This persisted around 3 times
    • Upon reboot Dell Diagnostics automatically kicked in since it detected that the system was not shut down properly. Result is that no problems found.
    • After Dell Diagnostics, the system rebooted and now is stuck to the loading screen with the spinning dots.

    Solutions that I tried:

    • Used Media Installation Tool to do Startup repair. But result is that the Automatic startup repair cannot resolve the issue.
    • Performed system restore to earlier date. The restore was successful but I am still stuck at the loading screen with spinning dots upon reboot.
    • Startup Settings does not show in the Troubleshoot menu so activated the F8 to trigger safe mode. Upon selection of Safemode with network the system reboots and gets stuck in Dell logo screen.

    Please advise. If possible I want to avoid losing my files.

    Thanks!

    Windows 10 stuck on loading dots

    My Windows 10 machine is stuck at a blue screen with the loading dots. It's been like this for hours. I've tried everything; booting in safe mode, doing a clean install (with keep my files), doing system repair.. I don't have any other option and I don't
    want to do a full wipe and clean install because I CANNOT lose my files since they're rather important. I don't know what to do and need a solution ASAP!
