Hey everybody,

Im posting this thread because I’m having issues with my pc. Before I go on, here are my specs:

-Intel Core i3 8100
-GTX 1050Ti
-Gigabyte b360m ds3h motherboard
-250gb m.2 ssd
-1TB Western Digital Hard drive,
-EVGA 500w 80+ bronze certified power supply
-G.Skill Aegis 16GB ram

The issue I am having is that whenever I turn on my pc, The gigabyte boot screen is appearing as usual and shows a little loading circle, but it never boots up completely into the windows Home Screen. I restarted more that 30 times and it’s still the same, it either says: Starting automatic repair and then shows a black screen and never boots up, or it just simply shows a loading circle and never boots. I have no clue how to fix this and I need help. This never used to happen before, and now it is suddenly happening. One thing I noticed is that this happened after my ssd ram out of storage, my pc stopped showing icons for apps, therefore I restarted it and it never booted up. I tried many many times and one time it did boot up, I used it a little bit but yet again it was very very slow so I restarted and ever since I can’t get it to boot. It’s just stuck on the boot screen. One other thing I also realized is that my keyboard lights keep switching on and off while it’s stuck on the boot screen. Can anybody help out?

Thanks,
Matthew

If you completely ran out of space then most likely this is the problem. Windows needs free space to write files to behind the scenes and its almost always recommended to leave at least 15% of any drive empty.

The only solution i can think of is removing the drive, using an adapter( like this https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-SATA-USB-Cable-USB3S2SAT3CB/dp/B00HJZJI84) and plugging it into another computer via USB and deleting some files to make room.

You could also buy a new larger SSD and using the same process along with another adapter (easiest method) clone the drive to the new larger SSD using something like https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.

I got the pc to boot up once, but icons weren’t showing up and it was slow, I went and deleted a 90gb game and it said 90gb free. Now I’m restarting my pc and I’m still having the same issue. Stuck on boot screen.
