    A solution to your Windows 10 system sticking in an infinite loop when starting up. Windows 10 might get stuck in a infinite loading Windows cycle. The following workaround may help with this problem: Hold the FN (Function key) down while powering on the system. Still holding the FN key, start tapping the Windows key to bypass the issue.

    If the above dosent worj then try these steps:

    Make an installation media then follow these steps: 

    1. Start your computer from the installation media. Insert the disk or USB stick and restart your computer. If you see a message asking you to Press any key to boot from that is usually from a DVD boot, do so. If you don’t see the message, you might need to change the boot order in your computer's BIOS settings (press F2 just and when your laptop starts) so that you an change the 1st boot to USB. When you see the Install Windows page, tap or click Repair your computer link to start the Windows Recovery Environment.
    2. In the Windows Recovery Environment, on the Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot.
    3. Click, Advanced Options and then click on Startup Repair.
    4. After this complete the repair and see if you are able to boot in to your computer.

    Note: There will be no data loss by performing Startup repair. It will format c: driver and reinstall Windows 10. It will remove all the installed apps and updates. Also be informed that, if you download drivers from third party website then there are chances of malware infection and this might cause this issue.

    Disclaimer: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft does not guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Usage of Third Party Software are done at your own risk.

    I am really sorry for the inconvenience..   Let us do the basic steps first..

     

    Doing the power drain and bios defaults will really help.  Kindly follow the steps given below:


    Turn off the laptop. Disconnect or unplug the charger cable, devices or any other cables connected to your laptop. Close your laptop. Turn it upside down.  On the bottom of the laptop, you can find a  pin hole. It is a tiny hole. You can a find a battery symbol indicator next to the hole. It is like a + and – sign symbol as though somebody is trying to shift the battery out. Insert the pin on to the hole for 30 seconds. Remove the pin. Flip the laptop. Connect the charger cable, turn on the computer.  Only on laptops where the battery is inbuilt you can find the battery reset hole on the back of laptop.


    If you don’t find a pin hole on the back of laptop then you might be using removable battery. There is no need to unscrew anything to remove the battery.  Turn off the laptop. Disconnect or unplug the charger cable, devices and any other cables connected to your laptop. Close your laptop. Turn it upside down.  On the bottom of the laptop, please look at the top or bottom depending on the way you look at it. You can find a long door. It is a battery removable door.  Just below that you can find a latch.  If you move the latch you can remove the battery door. Once the battery is removed, flip the laptop. Open the top cover, press and hold the power button for 1 minute. Connect the battery back on the back of computer. Connect the charger cable back and then turn on the computer. 

     

    If you don’t see a reset pin hole on the back of laptop or if you are not able to remove the battery (if it is inbuilt) then please unplug all the cables and devices out of laptop.   Hold the power button for 1 minute.  After releasing the button you should wait a while before plugging in power. Just because the button has been pressed doesn’t bleed off all the residual electricity on the motherboard. Wait 15-30 minutes before plugging in power. Then once power is connected wait for a full battery indication before turning the system on. That allows the battery to fully reset it’s internal statistics.

     

    Connect all the cables back and restart the computer.  



    While turning on the computer, tap f2. It will go to bios. Press f9 once. It will show load bios defaults with a yes or no popup. Press enter. Popup screen will disappear.  Press f10 once. It will show save changes popup with yes or no. Press enter. Computer will restart and it will load into windows.   

     

    It might also be the issue with battery, charger or power outlet.   Try to use the charger in a different room on a different power outlet.  Try to bypass the surge protector and connect it directly to power outlet.    Try to use an alternative charger if possible.    Try to turn on the computer without the charger and check it  ( as long as the battery is not drained out )
