Fix 2: Run Startup Repair

Windows Startup Repair can help repair your login screen missing issue in Windows 10. Follow these steps:

  1. Ensure your PC is off.
  2. Press the power button to turn on your PC, then hold the power button down until the PC shuts down automatically (about 5 seconds). Repeat this more than 2 times until you see the Preparing Automatic Repair (see below screenshot).

    Note: This step aims to bring up the Preparing Automatic Repair screen. When Windows doesn’t boot properly, this screen pops up and Windows attempts to fix the problem by itself. If you’ve seen this screen for the first time when you power up the computer, skip this step.

    Then wait for Windows to diagnose your PC.

  3. Click Advanced options, then the system will bring up the Windows RE (Recovery environment) screen.
  4. On the Windows RE (Recovery environment) screen, click Troubleshoot.
  5. On the Troubleshoot screen, click Advanced options.
  6. Click Startup Repair. The computer will automatically repair your computer.

Chances are that it fixes your issue of no login screen. Then restart your computer and see if the login screen shows up.

Fix 3: Update available drivers

A missing or outdated device driver in your computer can result in the issue of no login screen in Windows 10, so you should make sure that the drivers in your computer are up to date, and update those that aren’t.

Note: You should boot your computer into Safe Mode to update drivers in your computer.

There are two ways to update drivers: manually and automatically.

Manually update driver – You can go to the manufacturer’s website of your keyboard, find the latest correct driver for your device, and install it into your computer. Be sure to download the driver that is compatible with your OS.

Automatically update driver – If you don’t have time or patience, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

  3. Click the Update button next to all flagged devices to automatically download the correct version of their driver (you can do this with the FREE version). Then install it in your computer.

    Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

  4. Restart your computer to take effect.

Then exit Safe Mode and boot your computer in normal mode to see if it fixes your problem.

Still no luck? Okay, there’s one more thing to try.

Fix 4: Create a new user account

Likely, your previous user account is not working properly, so you can’t log into Windows with that account. But you can create a new user account to log in.

  1. Boot your computer into Safe Mode. if you’re not familiar with Windows Safe Mode, you can check this post for more instructions about how to enter Safe Mode in Windows 10.
  2. Once in Safe Mode, press the Windows logo key and I at the same time.
  3. Click Accounts in the Settings app.

  4. Click Other people on the left, then choose Add someone else to this PC.

  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish setting up a new user account.
  6. Try it again and see if it fixes your issue of no login screen.

Still not working? Don’t worry. There is something else to try.

Fix 5: Disable fast startup

The fast startup feature enabled can cause your Windows 10 computer not show the login screen. So you can disable fast startup:
