However, when the mechanism fails to fix it, a blue screen will appear with the error Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC. This error appears repeatedly or loops when we restart the laptop or PC.
This problem can be caused by various things ranging from an imperfect shutdown process, problematic windows update processes, antivirus, and others. To overcome this problem, of course, we have to do several ways. Start from the simplest. This is so that data and applications are not lost from our laptops.
How to Fix the Windows 10 Automatic Repair
1. Restart the Laptop or PC
The first step that must be tried to overcome automatic repair on Windows 10 is to restart the laptop or PC. The trick is to press the Restart button on the display. If it still fails then you can try shutdown by pressing the power button for a few seconds. Then restart the laptop.
This is necessary because sometimes problems occur due to an imperfect shutdown process, power failure, or hardware configuration changes. By turning off and turning on the laptop, it is hoped that the system will repair automatically when booting. Of course, without eliminating the files and applications in it.
But if it still doesn’t work then we need to do the next method.
2. Use Windows 10 Startup Repair
The next step is to start repair which is available in the options menu. When the blue screen appears with the Automatic Repair display, there will be an Advanced options button. Here are the steps:
- Click Advanced options.
- Select Troubleshoot.
- Then click the Advanced options menu.
- After that click Startup repair.
- Wait for the process to complete.
If successful, the system will restart automatically after the process is complete with the data remaining safe or not lost. However, if the process takes longer than 1 hour, it means the process has failed. Do the next method.
3. Repair Windows 10 with CMD using Regback
Regback is used to repair registry errors. This step needs to be tried to solve system errors due to a problematic registry. Here are the steps:
- First, click on the Advanced options button.
- Then click Troubleshoot.

- Then select Command Prompt. Then cmd will appear.
- Type copy c:\windows\system32\config\RegBack\* c:\windows\system32\config\ then press Enter .
- Type A then Enter if the Overwrite (Yes/No/All) question appears in cmd. However, if after doing step 5 appears The system cannot find then this method cannot be used.
- Close cmd. Then click Continue.
Then the laptop should restart and be able to enter Windows normally and the data is not lost. But if it still doesn’t work after restarting then try the next method.
4. Reset Windows 10
This step will delete all the apps on your laptop or PC. But the data on the laptop is still safe because we will choose not to delete the data. You can try resetting the PC if the previous 3 methods didn’t work. Follow the steps below:

This can happen because the system file is corrupted due to being deleted by a virus, antivirus, or other application. So we need to re-install.
