Windows 10: Computer goes right to Automatic Repair after BIOS screen. Cannot fix.

    Computer goes right to Automatic Repair after BIOS screen. Cannot fix.

    I was trying to play a game the other day after not playing for a long time. I hadn't restarted the computer in days. The game wasn't loading properly so someone suggested restarting the computer. I decided to restart my PC. Waiting for it to restart i was met with a Windows failed to start or something like that. I clicked advanced options i first clicked System Restore and of course all the restore points i set every month were somehow gone. Because i waited and waited and waited and suddenly it told me there was no restore points found. I then tried opening up the command prompt and switching to the D: drive because for some reason my HDD becomes D in the automatic repair. But anyways i punched in chkdsk /f. I was surprised at how much it found. I then thought it might actually start now! I restart. It doesn't work. I turned off the computer last night and haven't touched it since. Any help would be appreciated!

    P.S. I also tried Resetting. That failed too.

    Suggest you boot from your Windows DVD or recovery USB and check the presence & integrity of the partitions on your system drive. It's possible you may have a bad drive or maybe the power or SATA connections are disconnected. Also go into the BIOS at boot to check the drives are being detected correctly.

    Or you can use the Media Creation Tool to create a USB installation drive or ISO file - see
