    Windows 10 won't boot properly on cold start-up.


    Whenever I shut down my computer, I always have this problem. The Windows 10 insignia and the loading circle beneath will appear, then the screen will fade to black, and then my monitor says it can't detect my computer. I then have to unplug my computer from the outlet because I can't shut it down by pressing the power button. When I start it up again afterwards, it will start perfectly fine. And whenever I try to change the boot configurations, it automatically resets itself to the previous version.

    Please help and thank you in advance.

    Maybe your motherboard battery is dead CMOS needs to be replace if your bios doesn't stay where you settled

    And if I do does that mean I will lose my free Windows 10 upgrade?

    Before you buy a new CMOS battery, change a setting in the BIOS, turn off your computer, turn it back on, then see if the setting saved. If it didn't, your battery is dead.

    Are you sure that the CMOS battery is the problem? A dead CMOS battery just means that your BIOS settings reset to their defaults every startup.

    I think it was dead on arrival because I could never change my BIOS before.

    I bought a new battery and installed it. Did the exact same thing as before.
