    Windows 10 startup screen loops

    On bootup or PC awakening the Win 10 startup screen is displayed, just a date and time screen which, when a key is touched, goes to the login screen to allow PIN to be entered and startup to complete. Recently, when touching a key at startup to get the login screen, the system just loops back to the startup screen. This can happen several times but, so far, it eventually presents the login screen for PIN entry and completion of startup. Advice appreciated.

    Please update the My Computer section so that we can see what PC you have and details of the hardware. If your system is old it maybe that boot time takes longer to get the login screen and especially if fast start is not working.

    Windows 10 looping on startup

    Thanks for the response. I've completed my profile as far as I'm able (not being IT literate). My system is at least 5 years old and that may account for the problem, an old PC being incompatible with the latest OS. The looping recurred this morning and it took scores of attempts for it to stop doing so and present me with the login screen and PIN entry field. I'm nervous of shutting down now since the problem is almost certain to recur. Maybe time to buy a replacement but it is annoying I haven't found this particular issue on any forums.
