Method 4. Check System Log in Event Viewer

Checking the system log in Event viewer is helpful khổng lồ find the culprit of the "Your PC ran inlớn a system" error in Windows 11/10/8/8.1, especially for a problematic device or driver. 

Step 1. Click "Start" và enter the sự kiện viewer.

Step 2. Right-clichồng "Event Viewer" và choose "Run as administrator".

In some cases, your PC will restart và prepare a startup repair automatically after the error message appears, resulting in the "Your PC did not start correctly" screen. Here you can see two options: Restart và Advanced options.


If you cliông chồng "Restart", it"s almost inevitable the computer will come with the same error screen. Thus, you should choose "Advanced options" instead. Afterwards, continue lớn choose "Troubleshoot" > "Advanced options".
