Stuck in auto repair loop

by Crocoskully / May 16, 2017 2:33 PM PDT

Currently stuck in an automatic repair loop and have tried every single "solution" I could possibly find, some multiple times but with no results. I can't even start my pc in safe mode or reset the whole thing. I believe this happended when I went away for a bit, came back and saw that I had gotten a blue screen and the system was repairing itself. It was at 100% but I thought it was stuck there so I just turned it off and went on with my day, and now I'm here. I'm no pc guru, but I've tried all the suggested commands in command prompt which didn't work. I have no restore points, no previous builds and repair doesn't work. Any suggestions are appreciated

While it's odd to have no restore points.

That is on by default so is there more to this story?

Anyhow, on the next shutdown, be sure to unplug ALL USB things.

At worst you'll have to salvage your files (we have many ways to do that) then boot up your W10 USB repair stick (I use the Microsoft Media Creation Kit as I don't need a CDKEY for that) and try a repair there. At worst you'll have to use your laptop's factory restore procedure (this procedure is from the maker, so be sure to have it handy.)

If you didn't make the restore media when prompted...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
