Hi,

What is the make & model of your computer?



Let’s follow these methods & check if the issue persists:


Method 1

You may try to boot the computer in Last Known Good Configuration. It is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked.

Method 2

I would suggest you to run chkdsk from Recovery Console & check if you are able to boot to the desktop correctly.

a) To boot into the Recovery Console, you may follow this link:

b) At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following command & then press Enter on the keyboard:

    chkdsk [/p] : [/r]

Note: At first, try to run chkdsk /p & check if it helps. Later, you may run chkdsk /r.
