Windows 10: Windows 10 64 bit consistently will NOT cold boot.
I actually think I fixed it now. I have been talking to a support representative for corsair for about 4 days now. After getting useless suggestions one after another, he said to disable USB initialization in the BIOS. I wasnt sure what this was, so I went into my bios and found Legacy USB support and disabled that and windows seems to boot up fine now. anyone else with this issue, try that. But honestly, I am really unimpressed that I would have to even do that in the first place. It should work right of the box after all the drivers are installed. Not to mention it shouldnt PREVENT my system from booting! What are you doing, Corsair!?
I have the same problem with my HP Pavillion d whatever laptop. Whenever I turn my computer off (full shutdown) it will not boot back up properly unless I hit the restart switch. The spinning dots stop dead. None of the solutions in this thread work for me as it is just a laptop, no USBs or other. BTW I upgraded to Windows 10. (I cannot figure out how to edit my profile info.)
Did you try turning off fast startup in Windows 10?

I could not find Fast Startup.
The posted tutorial link is pretty clear on how to do this. Follow it closer or post screen images of anything that does not correspond to Brink's screen shots.

This happens when I power up the pc and it boots.
The desktop appears, and when I click normally on an icon (a desktop shortcut) to open it, it doesn't open. Instead I get the menu that I would get if I had right-clicked on the icon. If I open...
This has started since the updates the other day.
A power up boot (not a restart) does a router reset, not just of the Ethernet line, the whole kit and caboodle, including the external link. It happens in the first Windows startup phase i.e....
My Lenovo laptop is pretty fast at cold boot. It takes about 12 seconds from initial bios screen to desktop.
On the other hand, warm boot is really slow. The same period takes about 51 seconds, involving a long black screen.
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...
