Now I'm getting a blue screen with "Critical Processor died" and this is for both graphic card now.. i switched the cards to see and it is showig up for both cards. I also get E\windows\system32\logfiled\srt\srttrail.txt I tried to do scannow in cmd in advance help option and said there was a error in the upper case. I tried to do system restore but for some reason my C drive isn't on protection mode so now I see the restore points but I can't click on it since it is not on protection mode. It was on before so I don't know what happen. Can't get into windows. After the logo pops up, I get the error. Does that mean I have to reinstall windows....?

    Hello Ryu and welcome to Tenforums :)

    System Restore does get turned of with major windows updates such as the Creators update, you have to turn it back on again.

    If you are now unable to start windows you will need to create a recovery disk on another PC and then boot from this disk on your PC so that you can troubleshoot. See the following thread for how to do that:
