    System freezes on start-up


    Hello Windows 10 forum experts,
    I'm an old buzzard (last year of the draft) and not very tech literate, sorry. I hope I'm doing this correctly.

    I recently did the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my desk-top computer.
    Now, when I turn on my desk-top the system starts to load, but then it will just stop!

    Sometimes the start-up screen will make it as far as displaying a several of the circling dots, but frozen, below the blue Windows logo and sometimes it's only one frozen circling dot. I've waited thru a couple of cups of coffee to see if anything happens, but nothing ever does. So, I depress and hold the power button down to turn off the computer. Then, I'll turn the computer back on and the operating system will load! This gets to be rather annoying.

    Can anyone offer me any suggestions to fix this annoyance?

    Thank you for your support.

    Have any external devices hooked up on PC besides mouse and keyboard ? During bootup system checks hardware devices. Try disconnecting all then try restart. Hang can be due to hardware and drivers.This is only during first initial bootup (cold boot) or on restarts at times too ?

    Since upgrade have you visited your manufacturer's site for updates for Windows 10. Possible a windows update can be also trying to install or causing an issue.
    Also try to see how it reacts in safe mode and then boot back into normal windows option 1 here
