  • Please choose one of the forums for windows 10 IT pro:  Hardware and performance or general.

    Please post information on:

    Which windows 10 version?  1607 or 1703?

    Have you made any recent hardware or software changes.  Are you able to navigate through the windows troubleshooting menu and have you tried any of the other repair options?

    If you have windows 1607 do you want to upgrade to windows version 1703?

    In case it is needed do you have a flash drive or a bootable windows 10 iso?

    Do you have files backed up?
