Preserve personal files and folders and do a clean install. It is the fastest way to get everything correctly to work. If there are such symptoms, the Windows is probably capitally corrupted and there is not nothing  improve.

You can download Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool. Boot the disk. Select Repair Computer in the lower left Window. See if you can do a System Restore. Follow the steps in this guide but do a System Restore, not Repair.


If there are no restore points you replacing the registry HIVES in the Regback folder if their date is before you going to Safe Mode may let you boot.

I have seen the reinstall answer way to much in here lately. Does anyone do actual troubleshooting anymore?


You have power so that is a start. Power off and unplug anytime you get into the guts of your pc. It never hurts to hold the power button after power source is eliminated to cycle out any residual power either.


Open you pc case and unplug anything that has a cord coming from the power supply unit (PSU), except motherboard (may have 2 plugs), hdd, and and graphic card if it requires a power source(may have a chip and not a card). With only these 3 items plugged in, power on the pc. If it works it's something that you unplugged or the PSU is going bad. plug things in one at time to determine the culprit. Once found, swap plug in order with know good device to verify. if culprit is now working your PSU is dying.


If you can get into safe mode or the recovery console, open command prompt and type bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot and press enter to exit safe mode and restart to start normally.
