Any of you good with computers? I clicked restart on my computer yesterday and now it’s stuck on this circle when I try to switch it on. Just goes around and does nothing. Any advice?Name:  8DD0BA9B-3571-4563-9AE4-4BC46801135D.jpg.jpeg

Normal startup sound, shows the Novatech start up and then the circle appears. It always did, but not for this long. Always took you to the Password Login page

Have you tried booting in safe mode?

Try restarting your PC until it says something like: 'Troubleshooting problems'

Windows has a built-in feature, where if you restart enough it will start the advanced troubleshooting mode (the blue screen where you have boot options, UEFI options and load order).

But you can probably use your bios as well.

There is a boot option and it comes up with a Toshiba one or something like set up a new one. Shall I boot it up with the pre-made one?

Get a windows ISO on a USB stick and repair Windows. My bet is a Windows update has corrupted some boot file.

To install a Windows ISO you'll need a fresh USB stick, anything saved on the USB stick previously will be deleted. After you're done with the stick, format it back to NTFS or exFAT to use it as normal.
