The boot loop means the Windows starting screen must automatically update during the boot process. This will lead to a blank screen or no boot steps to the next process. Because of the abnormal boot order, the laptop will fail to startup. The following are the main reasons for this error:

  • Incorrect Windows update: Installing the wrong Windows may lead to a slow error on your PC.
  • Many Startup Apps: Too many startup apps may be loaded during the Windows boot.
  • Unfavorable or malicious drivers: Malicious and unfavorable drivers may sometimes be deployed.
  • Corrupted MBR entries: The corrupt registry or system files may prevent the PC firmware.
  • Unauthenticated driver signatures: The current driver may lack the proper digital signature.
  • The slow reaction of the screensaver or lock screen: The lock screen or screensaver may also stop the login screen.
  • Unnecessary apps and Windows service in launch sequence: Unwanted programs may cause bottlenecks.
  • Hard drive failure: If the hard drive failure leads to the boot error, the system will show you the error message, such as "no boot sector found" or "Windows boot error."
  • Complex and irremovable programs: The applications that are tough to remove may cause delayed boot times.
