“Automatic repair could not fix your PC”: easy solutions

Before diving deeper into technical solutions, check Windows advanced startup options:

  • Restart your computer and press the F8 key several times until you see the advanced startup options.
  • Here you can try different alternatives, such as “Jumpstart”, or you can select a restore point that was created before the problem occurred.

Fixing start-up problems: other possibilities

You have more options to fix the computer manually:

  • Command line tools: Boot your PC from an installation medium, e.g. a USB stick or DVD. You may have to change the boot order for this. Select “Computer Repair Options” and then “Command Prompt”. Type the command sfc /scannow and press Enter. Now system files will be scanned and Windows will try to repair damaged files.
  • Disk check: Open the command prompt. Enter the command chkdsk C: /f /r and confirm the entry with Enter. The hard disk is then checked for errors. Damaged sectors are automatically repaired, if possible.
  • Reset Windows Update: A faulty Windows update can also cause the problem. To undo the last Windows update, start your PC in safe mode. Open the Control Panel and go to “Programs and Features”. Click on “Show installed updates” and uninstall the last installed update.
