My wife has an HP p6228p desktop.  It has an Athlon II X4 620 2.8 gig processor, 8 gigs of RAM and a 583 gig hard drive.  It originally came with Windows 7 but it upgraded to 10 about 2 months ago.  She's having a weird problem.  There are times when the Windows button and the volume control work as they should.  Then there are other times when she has to right click the Windows button and access the menu just to shut down or bring up the sound mixed to adjust the volume. Rebooting has no effect.   Am I missing a setting I'm not aware of or is there a ghost in the machine?

The stuck start button has been a common issue with Windows 10 upgrades,i would start by running  the system file checker.

 

1. Open an elevated command prompt.

 

( 1. Open the Start menu, and type cmd to open the search box.

  2. When the Command Prompt appears in the search results, right click or press and hold on it, then click/tap on Run as administrator.)


2. In the elevated command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter.


sfc /scannow

3. When the scan is finished,you should a message saying Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

 

 

NOTE :The cursor will blink at the prompt until finished. Allow the proces to run untill finished.

 

If the filechecker finds no issues,close the command prompt.

 

 

If the filechecker finds issues it cant fix,copy and past the following command into an elevated command prompt and press enter.

 

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Thanks Wolverine 7.  I gave it a try and I got "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations".  Then again, it was acting fine at the time I tried it.  Time will tell if this did the trick.  I'll try it again if the behavior returns.  Thanks again!

Ok well thats a good sign,see how it goes,there are other processes that can be followed and work to fix the Start button,menu etc issue,if you have further problems.
