    Windows 10 splash screen won't load


    Windows 10 splash screen looks like the bottom 2 panes have been shot full of holes with a shotgun. OS never completes boot up, I have to power down with power button and immediately power back on. This has been happening since day one (a couple of months). 8 out of 10 boot ups has this issue and it’s getting monotonous. This is an upgrade from 7; never had this with 7.
    Search revels nothing.

    Since this problem started on day one, Repair Install may not fix it.
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Would you care to do a Clean Install ?

    If you choose to do a clean install, make sure you backup files you want to keep.
    With the problem you are having, there is no point to make a system image backup. Skip this step and start your clean install.

    I agree with David's suggestions. I would try the repair install first, when you get a good boot. If that doesn't fix things, a clean install may be in order. The OS should activate automatically, since you've already done the upgrade months ago.

    Agree. Don't waste time by trying to repair it, save your important files on a backup somewhere, note down all other sw you have and make sure you have the original discs etc, and then format the HDD and do a clean install.

    If you like being able to customise your OS, and run your own updates, Install win10 Pro, not the home version.

    Thanks guys; I'm gonna do the clean install. I'm tired of messing around, I've spent too much time already.

    One point I forgot to ask; By doing a clean install of 10, will I still be required to log on with a password or key although I'm the only user of this computer? I've never had to on 7, to me it's a nuisance.

    PLEASE do it the MS way.............. for now until you have reinstalled successfully and activated.
    Don't buck the system.

    He may be referring to the password after booting (on Welcome screen) to start Windows, not the setup during installation. He should still use his MS account for installation. Can switch, if wanted to local account later. Or use netplwiz to bypass sign-in. TC

    That's for AFTER installation is successful and activated.
    We can deal with that later.
    One step at a time.
