Your PC did not start correctly Windows 10

Original title: Windows 10 "upgrade = blue screen of death

Upon initial restart after upgrading to Windows 10, I get a blue screen that states "automatic repair: your PC did not start correctly".  I then have the choice to "restart" which is circular or "advanced settings" none of which correct the problem.  I cannot get past this blue screen to windows environment.  I don't have software disc as windows 7 (?) can preloaded on my Dell.

I don't have any restore points, cant reset, and can only restart which take me back to the blue screen. 

Any ideas before I lose my mind?!

Thanks!

This issue could occur due to corrupted files. Let’s try to follow these methods below which can help us resolving this issue.

Method 1: Check in safe mode.

Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you're using.

  6. Tap or click Startup Settings.
  7. Tap or click Restart.
  8. On the Startup Settings screen, choose the Safe Mode.
  9. Sign in to your PC with a user account that has administrator rights.

Hi,

Thank you for replying.

You may try to disconnect all the external devices except Monitor, keyboard and mouse and check.

You may try to boot from the Windows 10 media and try performing an Startup repair from Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE).

To perform Automatic repair on Windows 10 computer follow these steps:

a) Insert the media such as (USB or DVD) and restart your computer

b) Press F12 key (typically this is F12, but it can differ between computer manufacturers) and choose the drive that you inserted the installation media into.

Once the Windows Setup window appears, follow these steps:

c) Click Next and select Repair your computer.

d) You will then see a blue screen and an option to choose. Choose the option Troubleshoot and select Advanced options.

e) You may choose Startup Repair from Advanced boot option.

You may refer to the below link to download the ISO and create the installation media:

Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

Thanks & Regards,
AS

I ended up resetting my computer and removing all apps but keeping my personal content. That seemed to have done the trick but now I am trying to get some of my software back. Very exhausting process that I wish I had never started.

I have restore points but each one kicks out saying,"There was a problem. No changes were made." I also tried reset with the same response. The computer tells me I should uninstall my AVG as it is causing my problems. I cannot even get to the Control panel to do this. I have even tried using command prompts. I know nothing about this. I got as far as my syntax was incorrect and I gave up.  I am  at a total loss. Any help would be immensely appreciated.
