Fix 2: Computer hangs on the splash screen

Does your system hang on the splash screen? It is another very common iBuypower startup problem reported by many users. The PC hangs on the welcome screen and doesn't change for more than fifteen minutes. First of all, try to reboot your computer and give it one more round of fifteen minutes. And if that doesn't help you, then you should consider reinstalling OS.

To reinstall the OS, you need to create installation USB media (if you already have, then there is no need for you).

So, you need a USB flash drive of at least 8 GB and a working computer running Windows 7 or above. Using your working PC, go online, and get the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool on your system. It's recommended that you shouldn't just copy & paste the tool onto the flash drive. Run the downloaded tool on your Working PC and then follow the onscreen instructions to create installation media using your USB flash drive. The tool could take at least 20 to 30 minutes to copy the Windows 10 files onto the flash drive. Don't press any keys and let the tool do its job.

Once successfully creating the one, follow the below steps to reinstall Windows from USB drive:

Step 1: Connect the Windows 10 USB flash drive into your PC.

Step 2: Reboot your computer and repeatedly tap:

This would bring up Boot Menu on your screen.

Step 3: Then, choose to boot from the USB flash drive. And ensure to select the option that starts with UEFI, if available for you.

Step 7: Accept the License Agreement.

Step 8: Choose Drive 0 Partition 1 "System Reserved". Click on "Delete" and confirm it Delete each remaining Partition on all drives - there may be numerous partitions, generally called System, Recovery, Primary or New Volume - get rid of them.

Step 9: The only remaining options would be "Unallocated Space".

Step 10: Choose the drive that you would like to install Windows on, tap "Next" and it will begin installing Windows for you.

The installation process will take at least 20 minutes and the computer will reboot a few times. Be patient and don't press any keys until it requests for creating a username. After getting back to your desktop, ensure to download install the drivers for the motherboard and video card.
