    Windows 10 Not Booting Correctly


    I have a Dell 3252 Desktop. Pentium N3700 1.6 GHz, 8 GHz RAM. I am currently dual-booting Windows 10/Ubuntu 17.04.

    I had booted into Ubuntu and was doing an update. The update hung, so after about an hour I shut down and rebooted into Ubuntu. The update finished successfully and I again rebooted. I selected Windows 10 and...nothing. That time and every time since I just get a blank screen. If I go F12/Boot Options and select boot from hard disk I get nothing but the blue widow for 10-15 minutes, then the log in screen. I enter my password and after another 10 minutes if finishes loading.

    Once i'm into Windows the fun starts. If I delete a file or folder, the name stays until I go to another directory and come back. If I renames a file or folder, it reverts back to the original until I go to another directory again.

    Shutdown, Hibernate, etc. no longer work. Any suggestions?

    Hi rocklock and welcome to Tenforums.

    In Windows, check the health of your drive:
    Crystal Disk Info

    Run chkdsk /r on the OS drive

    Open an admin command prompt/Powershell and run - sfc /scannow

    Turn off Fast Startup and give it a few real shutdowns.

    Okay so your hard drive health is good, chkdsk and sfc found no problems, and turning off Fast Startup didn't help.
    Perhaps you could try a repair install using an in-place upgrade. This will keep all your programs and files intact.

    It's also possible that your user account has become corrupted. Creating a new one may be in order.
