Please help me. Whenever I press f8 it buzzes, Please help me my father,mother and sister gonna kill me. I know how to solve the black screen after Welcome screen press Ctrl + Shift + Esc, but I am worried on slow booting it takes 10 minutes to start a computer please help me, I think the screen is black after login because the computer's explorer.exe file is corrupted or It failed to start explorer.exe at startup. but help me on the black screen before starting windows and Slow boot, It takes 10 minutes to finish booting Please Help!!

    Turn the laptop off. Turn it back on again and immediately hold down F11. It should boot in to recovery and you can restore Windows from there and factory reset the device. If that doesn't solve the problem, and the problems still occur, it means it is a hardware problem, such as bad RAM or hard drive failing.

    10 minutes to boot? Try the following:
    1. disable unnecessary startup items
    2. uninstall unnecessary software
    3. free-up your storage space (empty recycle bin, use CCleaner to delete temporary files)
    4. defragment your hard drive... overnight.

    As per the advice earlier, pressing F11 during startup will just bring up advanced startup menus (depends on PC, maybe a different key in other models). Unless you go and explicitly format your PC, you won't format your PC.

    Sounds like the drive is going bad. As the drive starts to fall it retries over and over to read. These retries add up taking longer and longer to load. If the drive is still good enough to clone, buy another drive and clone it. If the drive is going bad, time is your enemy.

    1. This issue is likely not your fault.

    2. You can buy a drive, I've picked one up freshman year of high school. But that may or may not be necessary. It is not a trivial or quick procedure so I'm not sure how well the whole thing can be hidden.

    To boot a Windows installer you'll need to burn it to a DVD or USB drive (at least 4 GB) using a tool like "Rufus" but I'm reluctant to do that.

    Any change you can get into Safe Mode with F8? Getting into Windows Safe Mode

    It's hard to say since it could very well be a different component that's gone south but as long as your data is backed up, it can't hurt beyond spending hours or requiring assistance from a more technically inclined friend.

    You can go online and search for your model laptop and purchase a copy of the original bootable disks. This will give you more long term options (also the replacement disk will come with directions for you computer). I had to do this for one of my older computers, and it is still working fine (Windows 7 computer 💻). Cost for disks: 15USD

    Please mark this as solved. I found temporary solution for those having the same problem. Install Windows on your usb drive or CD then set first boot device to CD or usb then it will boot as the same as old times but You always need to insert your usb. Heres Link How to Run a Portable Version of Windows from a USB Drive thanks for everything guys even you don't wanted to helo me..
