    Preparing Automatic Repair Problem

    Guys, my laptop (Acer Win 10) is looping Automatic Repair and Diagnosing this PC. After that it shows your PC cannot be repaired, then loops again and again. I tried to start with (7) in troubleshoot -> startup and it works. But when I restart it loops again, how can I stop it? (I tried CMD Commands on youtube but nothing happend)

    Hi, assuming your HDD is ok and no significant corruption, try this:

    Shut down. Remove battery.
    Start up, and as soon as the laptop switches on, preferably before any disk activity, cut the power- suddenly- as in pull the cord out, flip the mains power switch.... (Yeah, I know...).
    Now press and hold the power button for 10 or 15s.
    Now reconnect power and try booting.

    I've found ever since MS introduced this attempt at automatic repair (which has never achieved anything for me I can recall) if my laptop experiences a thermal shut down (gets too hot) I get into such a loop. That's the only way I've found out of it.

    Otherwise you're into a repair scenario starting with chkdsk ....
