  • Hello,

     

    1. Run Windows Safe Mode 

    1) Detach all unnecessary peripheral devices from your computer, such as printers, scanners and removable storage devices.

    2) Restart the computer.

    3) Keep pressing the F8 key until the Windows Startup menu appears.

    4) Choose Safe Mode, and press Enter.

    5) Could you login the system in the safe mode? If so, please backup the data to the external drive.

    Note: In Safe Mode, your system display and Desktop will look and perform differently than in Normal Mode. This is only temporary.

     

    2. Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

    6) At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.
