What reasons can lead to Windows does not start and how to fix ?

Computers are composed of hardware components and an extensive combination of software. All of these parts, whether physical or virtual, are likely to have problems. Many users fall into despair when the PC stops working.

The flaws are more apparent hardware, or when any piece of the machine is faulty or poorly installed.

While the problem is restricted to disconnected cables and components burned, the solutions are simple. From the moment that the failures presented are part of the operating system is that the situation becomes critical. If you have not suffered from the Windows crash during startup, is good to stay tuned, because it can happen to any PC

Despite scare most users, with a little knowledge and patience, every error can be resolved. Find this article which are the main reasons for Windows to crash and how to retrieve it.

The RAM calls for help

As with any operating system, the Windows boot files are loaded and various features of the platform. Being responsible for the temporary storage of information, RAM is one of the more required. If this piece is in trouble or ill-fitted, it can not offer its maximum performance, resulting in what is called physical memory dump.

With this, the memory manager can not transfer the amount of data requested by the procedure, the overwhelming component. Because of this requirement, the system startup can be interrupted, causing the classic screen where the Windows loading bar becomes static.

Possible Solutions

To resolve this problem, the first step is to verify that the comb of RAM is properly seated. Also confirm that the component is not dirty – with thick layers of dust, for example.

When cleaning the piece, use isopropyl alcohol on board and rubber in the gold contacts. The technique of the rubber, although simple, really works 24Megabytes  guarantees.

At the time of handling the stick of RAM, you need to take some precautions, like avoiding hand contact with the electronics and the friction plate with rough surfaces. To prevent the situation gets worse, read “PC Maintenance: Installing memory and video card” before you start fiddling with the PC.

If the problem was the poor connection of the piece, re-load Windows normally. If failure persists, possibly, the RAM has a problem of operation. Your PC is not even finish loading Windows? Then follow the memory test described in this article to see if the component is working correctly.

For machines that stay on for a few minutes, you can use some software to perform this check, as the Everest Ultimate Edition and MemTest.

Heating  processor
Another component required in the very start of the operating system is the processor. As in the RAM, the chip is badly connected or present operation error, Windows will not load. In addition to the freezing procedure, similar to what happened to the memory stick failure, overheating processor can reboot constantly.

Possible Solutions
Before any hasty decision, make sure the processor is properly seated.

If the error continues, you should check the temperature of the piece. This information can be found by the BIOS .

The place where the temperature of the chip is displayed may vary according to the manufacturer (usually called “Hardware Monitor”), but with these tips you will be able to navigate through the BIOS settings without difficulty. Each device has a maximum acceptable temperature. Look for the mark and model of the component installed and search for the manufacturer’s website.

If overheating of the processor is confirmed, an output is to change the thermal paste of the component, which is responsible for dissipating heat from the workpiece during operation. Over time, this folder can dry out and lose their effectiveness

The programs  Prime95 and FFT-z are suggestions for you to test the performance of your processor, but that obviously need to load Windows completely.

System files corrupted

As mentioned earlier, Windows needs several files to initialize all its features. So if any of these files are corrupted, the operating system can not be executed. At other times, this kind of damage can lead to the classic blue screen – responsible for a lot of headaches.

The most common cause of such damage to the files is the abrupt interruption of power supply. For example, when the user shuts down the PC by pulling the power cord from the outlet when a power outage in the power grid.

Possible Solutions

This is a situation where there is no connection with the computer hardware. The problem is only virtual. In most cases, not even in Windows Safe Mode can be accessed. Thus, there is no other choice but to restore the corrupted files.

The recovery of the integrity of data is done from the installation CD of the operating system, paying attention to the fact that the version of the optical media should be the same on your PC.

When the problem is malware

The action of malware that promote non-booting the operating system is not as common. However, if the procedures described here do not resolve your problem, this hypothesis can not be ruled out.

There are some malware that may cause the machine to be restarted or some files critical to the operation of the OS to be accessed, causing the appearance of the dreaded blue screen of death.

Possible Solutions

Even though Windows is booted, these viruses are rarely detected on the machine. However, you can try to access the system Safe Mode and run a reliable Anti-virus.

As a second alternative, we suggest using the Kaspersky Rescue Disk – a program that after being burned onto a bootable CD can track threats on the computer even boot the OS without it.

In the latter case, you can remove the storage disk of your machine and put it on another PC, so you can make a more efficient scanning.

Outdated drivers

Drivers are software that act as translators between the hardware and operating system. They are responsible for the efficiency of data communication between these parties. Due to this functionality, drivers can lead to malfunction of Windows, although this is rarer.

When a driver is incorrectly installed (the software is a different version of the piece installed), is outdated or has any kind of conflict with other devices on the machine, Windows will suffer the consequences – making it slow, crashing during use, restarting or stopping the loading.

Possible Solutions

The first action you can take is to reinstall the drivers for all components (motherboard, processor, video card, sound and network, among other devices). Some manufacturers ship a CD accompanying the piece gained. However, you can download the drivers on the site of their respective companies.

Remember that the safest way to upgrade this software is the Windows Safe Mode, as discussed in this article.

Drastic measures

The procedures are explained to the topic most relevant to the restoration of the most common mistakes. If none of them solved the difficulty of Windows to boot, your problem may be more serious: the operating system may have been damaged. In this case, the last exit is formatting the computer.

Prevention is better than cure. The old adage can also be applied to computers. Keep your computer clean, the operating system and updated drivers and protect your PC from malware are activities that we incorporate into our routine.

Stay tuned for any hint that may offer new knowledge. So, you’re ready to face any adversity in the case of Windows crashes.
