PC wont start up

Nathan Wilson 1 Reputation point

I’m having trouble starting my pc, I’ve tried startup repair, system restore, a reset of the pc, and nothing has worked so far. I don’t have administrative access although I’m the only user on the pc. Any help on what I could do?

    Hi there,

    As it seems you do not have an administrator account and the advanced recovery option is not helping you are left with an option of a clean install.

    A clean installation of Windows 10 is the process of erasing the hardware and setting up a new fresh copy of the platform when a computer has a problem.

    For example, you can resolve performance, memory, startup, shut down, and app issues using this method.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
