Windows is a software system that helps you by memorising commands and navigating menus, buttons, tabs, and icons. It is one of the most commonly used operating systems in the world. The most current version is Windows 10, which was released on July 29th, 2015.

What does it Mean for Windows to ‘Boot’?

The term ‘boot’ simply means that the software starts up, or is ready to operate. If it fails to start, we say that Windows isn’t ‘booting’.

How do I Know Windows Isn’t Booting?

There are additional symptoms that can also indicate that Windows isn’t booting.

These symptoms include:

  • Your computer may turn on but you could get a message that says ‘no bootable device’ or ‘disk error’. There are a number of other error messages you may receive depending on the device.
  • Windows may also stop working (or ‘crash’) during use. This is called a ‘blue screen error’ (or sometimes a ‘black screen error’).
  • Occasionally the system will continuously reboot, preventing you from logging into your desktop
  • Mouse cursor freezes

Reasons Windows May Not Be Booting

  • Using the wrong power supply (incorrect voltage)
  • Blown fuse
  • Using the wrong charger for your laptop
  • Screen may fail
  • USB drive or memory card left inserted into USB port, or disc left in Blu-ray or DVD drive
  • System may be virus infected
  • Newly installed memory or hardware
  • Improper boot order sequence
  • Damage from trying to start an earlier version of Windows
