So, to start off, this problem occured shortly after having my PC shut down during a ranked game. While restarting my PC, it wouldn't let me restart it normally (without checking for any problems and fixing them). So I succumbed to the fixing of the error, which still took a while. Once I finally got that finished, I tried open LoL and i got this error message stating " Another instance of this launcher is running. Do you want to terminate it? " What confused me so much is that I had just restarted my comp and there was no way that another program of LoL could still be open. I clicked yes and it took me to the patcher. Thinking everything was dandy and fine, i clicked play sitting in anticipation of the login screen popping up. Atlast, it never did. Why?

When I had this very same problem, I had to reinstall it was the only fix that worked for me.

i dont know if this will fix your problem but what i did was click the gear button at the top of the screen next to minimize instead of clicking play. and i did a launcher repair then restarted my comp when the restart was complete and it works normally now

The unexpected shut down probably caused a file to be corrupted, you can try repairing League, but if that does not work then you will have to reinstall.

ctrl+alt+del
start task manager
processes tab
look for any process that has something to do with league of legends
end process
no need for any shutdown or uninstalling or reparing
