  • If you can boot to Safe mode but can't boot to normal mode then it indicates a driver related issue. I shall suggest you to update all the related drivers in Safe mode.

    If the above doesn't help then kindly go through the following Microsoft reference:

  • Hi

    Firstly, try to do the following steps:

    • Hold shift button and click Power button
    • Restart while keeping shift button pressed.

    If it doesn’t work, then get to safe mode and perform sfc/scannow command to check if it works.

    Besides, you can refer to the following link for more assistance:

  • Hello,

    Try performing Startup Repair:

    1. Start your Windows 10 machine, and quickly shut it down before it reaches or if it is at boot screen. Do this two times repeatedly.

    2. On the third time, Windows 10 will automatically display 'Your PC couldn't start properly' message. Now press Esc key for recovery options.

    3. Then under Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot option and now click Advanced options option.

    4. Under Advanced options screen, click Startup Repair.
