Computers are one of the most important things we use these days. We always find it very inconvenient when our computers suddenly stop working, whether we’re using them for professional or personal use. Restore Computer Repair customers tend to bring their computers in, for this reason, most of the time. There might be a simple fix that our customers can do by themselves at home that is not well-known to them. I am going to show you what a system restore is, why it is useful, and how to perform it in Windows.
The following are some common reasons why your computer may have stopped working correctly and may require a system restore:
- Updates could have been installed incorrectly or partially
- during an update, and the computer or laptop may have lost power
- There may have been problems with some antivirus/antimalware apps
- if you shut the lid on your laptop while the update was being installed
- During the installation of the update, your computer is inactive, so you hardly close it.
It is possible for a Windows update to not complete properly and cause vital functions to stop working. The Windows update process also updates your computer’s software and hardware. When Windows updates your drivers, the system will become unstable if your laptop or desktop is shut down. Sometimes a corrupted driver will lead to blue screen errors and will prevent you from loading Windows. You should be familiar with how to perform a system restore on your computer because of this.
Microsoft Windows has a feature called system restore that allows you to go back in time to the last time your computer worked properly. This program runs in the background each day and takes a snapshot of your settings and registry once a day. Most Windows users have the system restore feature enabled by default; however, there may be users who have disabled it. Infected system restore points will be contaminated by most viruses.
In order to clear up disc space, some users choose to do a system restore. A system restore should not result in the loss of personal files; it merely returns the machine to its pre-issue state by repairing the Windows registry.
It is critical to understand that a system restore is not an effective method of eliminating a virus from your computer. When a virus enters, the first thing it destroys is the system restore points. When cleaning a computer with a virus, every professional worth his or her salt will delete all previous restore points.
If the user later decides to do a system restore, they will not reinfect their machine with a virus-infected registry. So, presuming your computer is malware and/or virus-free, follow these steps to ensure system restore is enabled and how to use it.
How to ensure that system restore is enabled
- Look in the bottom left corner of your desktop screen for the Search box.
- Type Create a restore point into the search box and select the control panel result. A window called “System Properties” will appear.
- Select the main system drive (C:) and click the Configure button under “Protection Settings.”
- Make certain that “Turn on system protection” is enabled/checked.
Performing a system restore
1. Steps 1 and 2 from above must be repeated.
2. Select the “System Restore” option.
3. When the “System Restore” box appears, click “Next.”
4. The following window displays the most recent system restore point. Click “Next” once that restoration point has been highlighted.
5. The last box in the system restoration procedure will prompt you to confirm the operation by clicking “Finis.”
Reset Your Laptop’s Video Drivers
If your computer abruptly freezes, consider resetting your video drivers. To do so, use the keys Win + Ctrl + Shift + B. Your screen will go dark for a few seconds, followed by a beep signalling that the video drivers have been reset.
Force Restart Your Personal Computer
Hold down the Power button for a few seconds until the computer goes off. Wait around 30 seconds before restarting it. This will usually get you back up and running shortly.
Secure Your Seat Belts for Safe Mode
If you still don’t see an image when your computer boots, it might be a driver or other software problem. If you enter Safe Mode, you might be able to capture a photo. However, if you don’t have a functional screen, to begin with, this can be problematic.
You have two options: if you interrupt the starting process three times (for example, by clicking the restart button as Windows begins booting), you’ll be sent into the Automatic Repair menu, where you may navigate to Advanced Options to discover Safe Mode.
Once you’ve performed these steps, the system restoration procedure will begin, which might take several minutes to many hours depending on your system.
