How do I fix a Windows 10 PC that doesn’t start up?

1. Confirm that your computer completes the POST process

In many cases where Windows 10 will not boot, the computer may not hand off control of the operating system.

Some users claimed that what helped them in this particular situation was to troubleshoot directly from Safe Mode as we detail in this comprehensive guide.

If you boot your computer and the POST bar fills up completely, then disappears, then it has completed the POST successfully.

2. Disconnect any external devices

Sometimes hardware may interfere with the normal Windows boot process, that’s why sometimes it is recommended that you unplug all your other devices.

Unplug peripherals and gadgets connected to your computers such as a printer, scanner, digital camera, video recorder, USB device, CD/DVD, mp3 player, media card reader, and others.

Keep only your mouse, monitor, and keyboard (if using a PC). Once you do this, unplug the computer from the power outlet on the wall.

You also need to remove the laptop battery, hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds, then plug back the power outlet and restart.
