    Windows 10 startup problems


    I have a Lenovo Thinkstation with Windows 10 installed on a SSD drive.

    Everything been running fine for months until this morning the while the PC is logging on started to exhibit erratic behavior, screen going blank, PC resetting and restart, etc.

    Currently It won't finish logging and usually resets / restarts.

    I did seem one message box about a "Elby" driver. I remember installing a ISO drive software, which I believe is

    Virtual CloneDrive

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    windows 10 startup problem

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    I suggest you to check if there are any pending Updates.

    Kindly perform clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict and check the status.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the below steps to perform a Clean Boot.

    Check in “clean boot” state, to check if any third party application is causing the issue. Follow these steps to start the computer in clean boot.

    Step A:

    a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

    b) In the ‘Run’ windows type
    ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

    c) Click the ‘Boot’ tab and uncheck
    ‘Safe Boot’ option.

    d) On the ‘General’ tab, click to select the option
    ‘Selective startup’, and then click to clear the option
    Load startup items
    check box.

    e) On the ‘Services’ tab, click to select the
    ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box, and then click
    ‘Disable all’
    .

    f) On the ‘Startup’ tab, click ‘Open Task Manager’.
    In the Task Manager window under startup tab,
    right click on each startup item which are enabled and select ‘Disable’.

    g) Click ‘OK’, and then click Restart.



    Step B: Enable half of the services

    a) Follow steps 1a and 1b to start the System Configuration utility.

    b) Click the Services tab, and then click to select the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box.

    c) Click to select half of the check boxes in the
    Service list.

    d) Click OK, and then click
    Restart
    .



    Step C: Determine whether the problem returns.



    If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the
    Service list.

    If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the
    Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

    If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem, the selected service causes the problem. Go to step 6. If no service causes this problem, go to
    Step 4.

    Step D: Enable half of the Startup items:

    If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.



    Step E: Determine whether the problem returns:




    If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the
    Startup Item list.

    If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the
    Startup Item list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

    If only one startup item is selected in the
    Startup Item
    list, and you still experience the problem, the startup item that is selected in the list is the service that is causing the problem. Go to step 6.

    If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.



    Step F: Resolve the problem:

    After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration utility, and then click
    to clear the check box for the problem item.



    Step G: Reset the system to Normal startup mode:

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.

    a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

    b) In the ‘Run’ windows type
    MSCONFIG and click ‘Ok’.

    c) On the ‘General’ tab, click the
    ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click ‘OK’.

    d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click
    ‘Restart’.



    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.
