  2. Computer not booting to desktop, stuck at Restarting screen

    Hi Fred,

    Thank you for posting in Community.

    The issue might occur if the system is not Shut down properly. As you have already tried restarting the system several times, I suggest you to perform a Power Drain by following the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Turn Off the computer and remove the power cable.
    • Long press the Power button for 15-20 seconds.
    • Plug in the power cable and switch on the computer.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

  3. windows update stuck at installation screen and cannot get to desktop

    Hi Sue,

    To understand the issue better, I would like to ask some questions:

    • Is the computer stuck in the Installing updates screen?
    • For how long is the computer stuck in the screen?
    • When was the computer last updated?
    • Is the screen showing any percentage of installation?

    Sometimes the installation might take a long time to install if the update is of large size. So, I suggest you to wait for sometime and check if the system boots to the desktop. If it is taking a longer time, then perform a Power Drain by following the steps
    provided below:

    • Shut down the Computer.
    • Remove all power source (including battery if it is a laptop).
    • Press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds.
    • Connect the power source and start the computer.
    • After the computer boots to the desktop, suggest you to install all the pending updates.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    • Did you make any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to disconnect all he external devices connected to the computer and reconnect it. This is to check if the issue is conflicted to the external devices. Once you are boot to computer install
    all the pending updates.

    I suggest you to
    install the updates again, and restart the computer.
