Fix 1: Power Off And Restart Your Computer Multiple Times

This technique might sound simple, but it is quite effective. All you do is long press your power button (The one which you tap to turn on your PC) and shut down your computer. You repeat it at least three times and hopefully, you might be in luck.

Fix 2: Use Your Command Prompt

And once you open up the command prompt…

You type the name of your main drive there. As in most cases, your main drive is the “C Drive”.

So you will have to type in “C:” on your command prompt and then press enter.

Select the Main Hard Drive of Your Computer

And then type in “dir” and then press enter.

The only way you can check that if your C drive is your main hard drive is if you get the labels such as “Program Files, Users, Windows” after running the “dir” command. And if it doesn’t appear, then you can try in different hard drives of your computer until you get the correct one.

Type in "dir" in the command prompt

After finding in the correct hard drive of your Windows 10 computer. You type in the following code in your command prompt…

cd \windows\system32\config

Paste in the code

And then you press enter. After that, you type in “MD Backup” and press enter.

You press enter. And then you type in…

CD regback

Type in "cd regabck" in command prompt

After that, you type in “dir” and press enter.

Fix 3: Use Startup Repair To Fix Windows Stuck On Restarting

If the first two methods didn’t work out, then you can use the startup repair options within your Windows 10 PC and hopefully fix this issue of your computer stuck on the restarting screen.

So this time all you do is go to the “Automatic Repair” screen. And then go to “Advanced options”.

Go to Automatic Repair

After that, go to “Troubleshoot”. And then click on “Advanced options”

From there you click on this option which says “Startup Repair”.

Choose Startup Repair

After that, your Windows 10 PC will automatically search for a solution to being stuck on restarting.

Fix 4: Try Running A System Restore

If none of the first three methods don’t work out, then running a system restore would be one of your last resorts.

To implement this fix, you need to have a bootable USB stick with your installation files stored in it.

So you plug in your USB stick and connect it with your PC by changing the boot order in your BIOS settings to boot from the USB stick. And once it’s done your Windows installation files are gonna start loading.

Boot from your USB stick

And then you can choose which version of the operating system you want. Either its the “32-bit” or the “64-bit”.

Choose Windows 10 version

And based on the version of Windows you had installed on your computer, you select it and then press enter.

After that, you will see a loading screen. From there you will be taken to another new tab. Which is the Windows setup page. And there you click on “Next” which is on the lower right corner.
