My windows 10 upgraded Asus Laptop will not turn fully on and when it does it shuts off after a minute with a screen that says Pc error. It loads the Asus logo but takes forever to get to my screen and than shuts off. It is also going to the f10 menu every time I turn it on. Help!!!
Last resort would be to reinstall Windows. That will clear out any software issues and will avoid any damaged sectors on the drive. If the drive is going bad, though, you'll have to replace it and then reinstall Windows to the replacement.
Could be anything from bad RAM, bad drive, bad motherboard. Need to test the parts one at a time to see what gets rid of the error. Is the only thing that shows up is exactly "PC Error", no other details? This started just out of no-where or was it dropped, spilled on, etc...?
I did drop it like 2 months ago but no it was spontaneous. It will go to the f10 settings every type it shuts off and i turn it back on again
Re-seat the hard drive and RAM in the system. Can you get into the BIOS and go through settings without it shutting off? You can try a Linux Live boot disk and run a few things there, check the web browser for example, see if that stays stable for a while.
If it doesn't see your hard drive, reseat it like hang-the-9 mentioned. If it does see it, try booting from a Windows DVD or USB and run said repair/restore options, or reinstall Windows if it comes to it.
