I am using Windows 10 on my Core i5 laptop. from last 1 month I am facing an issue. This issue does'nt arise every time. Sometimes I logged into windows account without any problem, but some times it takes hours to go to the logon screen.

It shows "Attempting Repair" or Attempting Automatic Repair screen when I power on my laptop. After some time it goes to the next screen where I select the Advanced Option and from there I select Exit and continue to Windows 10. After that laptop restart and same process begins, attempting repair scren and all that. It keeps repeating for almost an hour.

If I select the Troubleshoot option then it takes about 2 horus on repairing your windows page and then it goes to log on screen. It happens every second day. I am not sure if this is laptop hardware issue or windows problem.

I asked one local repairer who knows hardware. He said if it is a hardware problem, it should happen everytime I power on my laptop. But this is not the case.. Sometimes my laptop starts perfectly fine, but some times it takes 1 to 2 hours to start. I have to restart again and again from the point of "Exit and Continue to Windows 10" as shown in the 3rd picture above.

Hardware can do that too. If you feel it's too much to supply the reports why not have it repaired?

If the diagnostics don't show anything you might try sfc /scannow from an admin cmd session.

Scans the integrity of all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with
correct Microsoft versions.

    [/OFFWINDIR=<offline windows directory> /OFFBOOTDIR=<offline boot directory> [/OFFLOGFILE=<log file path>]]

/SCANNOW        Scans integrity of all protected system files and repairs files with
                problems when possible.
/VERIFYONLY     Scans integrity of all protected system files. No repair operation is
/SCANFILE       Scans integrity of the referenced file, repairs file if problems are
                identified. Specify full path <file>
/VERIFYFILE     Verifies the integrity of the file with full path <file>.  No repair
                operation is performed.
/OFFBOOTDIR     For offline repair, specify the location of the offline boot directory
/OFFWINDIR      For offline repair, specify the location of the offline windows directory
/OFFLOGFILE     For offline repair, optionally enable logging by specifying a log file path


        sfc /SCANNOW
        sfc /VERIFYFILE=c:\windows\system32\kernel32.dll
        sfc /SCANFILE=d:\windows\system32\kernel32.dll /OFFBOOTDIR=d:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\windows
        sfc /SCANFILE=d:\windows\system32\kernel32.dll /OFFBOOTDIR=d:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\windows /OFFLOGFILE=c:\log.txt
        sfc /VERIFYONLY

You stated, "from last 1 month I am facing an issue". be certain your unit has ample adequate air circulation. Perform a restore using a date before you started having trouble. If this doesn't cure the problem, then you might have a hardware problem with the 'mother-board'. The sure way to determine this is performing a total factory reset/restore using a F function key, normally possible, if the Windows 10 is genuine, factory installed into the separate partition. This will erase and delete the total content on the hard drive so Be Sure to backup your files and photos. Also, Do this with your laptop plugged in. Do not depend only using the battery. Good Luck.

This could be a multitude of issues from a failing hard drive, suspicious RAM or damage to the Motherboard... However first of all - GET BACKED UP!! even take an image of the drive if possible.. Then consider is this the original install of Windows 10 as factory installed... if so then it maybe time to consider a full wipe and rebuild using the latest ISO (BEWARE if you are using Office 2007 (unsure about Office 2010) or earlier your software will not Re-Activate as servers have been turned off)

The rebuild process should clear all of your potential issues IF theyre SOFTWARE related... IF the issue is HARDWARE related then the rebuild process should identify it..

Windows 10 from my personal experience has been qute resilient - My personal laptop (9 year old HP EliteBook 8460p - i7 upgrade, max RAM and SSD upgrade) running the latest BETA versions (since the first BETAs) and is still on its original install and has migrated through every version without any MAJOR issues.

This looks like a hardware issue to me. I would replace the hard drive if this was my computer.

I also face with this problem each time, when I have the lack of free space. Or, in other cases, but the problem is really into my hardware.

Try to find a Windows specialist near you and ask to him. Because sometimes our Hard Disk doesn't work properly and show these types of errors. As of my experience, I think your storage is damaged from inside.

Thanks for the information.

I would suggest go ahead and click on Trouble shoot and take your system to safe mode and then run a system restore for a month back , try to select those date which says system checkpoint and i am sure that should resolve the issue.
