Windows 10: Computer Suddenly Stopped Booting up...
That's the progress, I think Windows tries to load something from what it couldn't be found (normally the drivers), so it'll continuously do that endlessly.
Boot again the way you renamed the folder, now browse to -> ... /Windows/System32/drivers <- inside the drivers folder, find and rename the file with the names started with avg e.g. avgxxxxx.sys etc. It would be a few files to rename.
Done with that, try to boot.
Computer won't boot from any disk...
I have now tried running chkdsk and renaming drivers.
Chkdisk said that 'windows has made corrections to the filesystem, no further action is required' however, I still am getting the continuous boot loop.
Also, after renaming all AVG related drivers, the issue still persists.
I have tried booting from multiple linux disks and windows install disks now, and all of them are not booting: they simply come up with errors or freeze on startup.
Thanks to everyone for the help
Soopg, are you installed in UEFI mode? if you are, try to go into bios and disable Secure boot and adjust your CSM for UEFI and Legacy. Then try to boot into one of the Windows install disks.
My computer is already in UEFI and legacy mode and secure boot is disabled.
After a few attempts where the computer froze, I finally managed to get one of my windows disks to boot!
Try to get into recovery options and run startup repair. Startup Repair - Run in Windows 10 . After 2 unsuccessful atempts in a row, you should boot into recovery options, and be able to run it from there or do a restore or refresh. Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10. If you can't, on another computer, download the media creation tool and create a USB drive and boot from it and do recovery from there.
Startup Repair Couldn't repair your PC!
I have run startup repair and 'startup repair couldn't repair your PC'. Oh dear!
Try a restore and see if you have any restore points. otherwise you are probably going to have to do a refresh or reset Recovery Environment - Use to Troubleshoot Windows 10 Failure to Boot
Although I could do a system restore/reset, I have been experiencing BSODs and freezes on multiple clean installs on this machine. So, what concerns me is what is causing these issues...and why does the computer fail to boot correctly from linux disks and install CDs at times?
Do you think that a piece of hardware could be causing my issues? I would prefer not to reinstall and set up windows only to find similar problems re-occurring.
Thank you so much for your help.
Yes, it is quite possible. Create a new thread in the Crashes and debugging section https://www.tenforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/ . If you can boot into the OS, run the BSOD - Posting Instructions and upload the ZIP file. Otherwise, from the recovery environment, navigate to C:/windows/Minidump and copy then zip up the folder and upload it with your first post. Be sure to give a good description of what is happening.
Okay then, I will create a new thread tomorrow in the BSOD section.
Thank you and everyone who has helped so far.
