Windows Does Not Want To Start

Have you ever encountered a situation where Windows just can't start? Well in this post I will describe 2 procedures that I follow when this issue occurs. I use this as a basic way of solving the problem as sometimes with computers, a problem is usually solved in a simple manner rather than a complex manner.

Procedure #1:
Power down your computer and check to see if all cables are fitted well... any loose or slightly detached cables could cause startup problems. Connect everything well including keyboards, mouse, monitor etc... move your computer if you must to get to all the connections. Now power up your computer.

If you got it to start then good for you! If not proceed to Procedure #2 if you can...please read the note before proceeding...

Note: Procedure #2 requires that you have some working knowledge and expertise in handling internal computer components and cables and are authorized to open your case/tower (some cases/towers have a warranty sticker which may still grant you free service, so check first before you attempt this procedure). It also requires that you have an Antistatic Wrist Strap so to reduce the chances of damaging any of your internal components. If you are not qualified to do this then seek a computer repair person to do this for you, might as well even tell him/her the problem you are encountering.

Procedure #2
Power down your computer and detach all your external cables so that you can literally place your computer tower/case on a clear sturdy table. Open your case access panel and wear an Antistatic Wrist Strap. Begin checking your internal cables to see if they are all well fitted. This includes all ide cables, all sata cables and all power cables to and from all your devices and motherboard. Make sure everything is well fitted. Take off your antistatic wrist strap when you are done inspecting all cables. Close your case/tower. Plug all external cables again... mouse, keyboard, power cables etc. Power up your computer and hopefully windows starts up normally!

The 2 procedures are very basic and could save you a trip to the repair person if you can perform procedure #1 and are qualified to perform procedure #2 should #1 not solve your issue.

Yeah, I know what you mean, sometimes the solution is a simple one. Yet, at times.... it can be like finding a needle in a hay stack. Thanks for visiting!
