    I cannot boot up Win10


    Hello Every1:

    After huge horror with my PC which ended with coming back to Win7 (some of PC components due to its age were not supported by Win10) I am facing huge problem with Win10 again. This time on my laptop.

    I was happy Win10 user for a good few months. Several days ago I did install W10 important updates (I don't know what it was). After this my horror begun. Since then I cannot boot my laptop. It goes to W10 logo (sometimes goes further to violet screen) and unexpectly shoots down. I have to push "Power" button to start it but it goes to point mentioned above and stops again. No any safe mode or other restore either repair options work. It simply turns off right after choosing any of these forms.

    I suspect that it has something to do with "Hibernate" mode I was using with no problem up to the moment of update. But I have no chance to check/fix it as I cannot boot this damn thing up.

    Any idea, folks how to force this thing to work without using a sledge hammer?

    What I would do, if you have space on the hard drive:

    You'll need two USB flash drives or blank DVDs. One will be Windows 10 install media created either from Media Creation Tool or ISO from Microsoft Tech Bench. The other will be Kyhi's recovery drive. Boot the computer from Kyhi's recovery drive flash drive or DVD. Use MiniTool Partition Wizard to shrink the Windows partition by 50GB, making the free space at the end of the partition is easier/quicker than from the front. Don't forget to click the apply button!

    When you have 50GB free space on the hard drive, boot the computer from the Windows 10 installation flash drive or DVD. Select the custom install option. Install Windows 10 to the 50GB free space you created.

    See how the computer acts on the fresh install of Windows 10 - this will not affect your old Windows 10. In fact, it should set up dual booting. Then we will go from there.

    Just curious - at what point do you expect him to press Win key + R to open a run dialog? You have to be booted all the way into Windows for Win key + R to work to open the run dialog.

    Read his post....Quote No any safe mode or other restore either repair options work. It simply turns off right after choosing any of these forms.
    This would suggest he gained access to his computer.

    You didn't answer my question. At what point in the boot process do you expect him to press Win + R keys? It is clear from his OP that he never gets to a desktop or start screen. The computer powers off by itself before then.

    What is this, a bloody inquisition, I offered a suggestion going on what I interpreted from his post, as explained in my previous post.

    He cant reach the lock / logon screen, let alone the desktop.

    Nope, just trying to help out the OP. You told him to try Win key + R but you never told him when to try it. If he does not get to a desktop or start screen in Windows 10, when do you want him to press Win key + R? It's a simple question, that's all. Does he do it at the computer manufacturer's logo screen immediately after turning on power? Does he do it at Windows logo with the rotating dots? If he can get into the recovery menu, does he do it there? To my knowledge, Win key + R only brings up the run dialog from the desktop or the Start screen, which the OP claims he cannot get to. So I am trying to figure out if I have something missing in my knowledge.

    Which is exactly why I am asking when the OP is supposed to press the Win + R key.
