    It's kind of hard understanding what you're saying or meaning due to sentence run-on (lack of periods). But.... I would suggest you try removing the TPM module and see what happens....

    did that in other forum nothing i think i found out what it is looks like my TPM chip is disabled that i installed why i dont no maybe windows never reinstalled the driver for it going to try the driver disk and se if i can get it going , it is installed and working just for some reason windows has it inactive and says its not there very strange

    so got that enabled again i think it just disabled it when i did bios defaults if it does this wired thing again i will get a pic of it to try and decipher what it could be.
    And yes, the TPM module does need to be configured in Windows.

    I wonder if the computer is looking for the boot CD? Or, your video card isn't connected properly?
    Additional info all i did was upgrade my video card from a old gtx 760ti to this gtx 970 reference card. and oh and changed the boot order a while back to boot from a cd other then that nothing.

    Exact message your pc needs to be repaired a required device isn't connected

    it could have been not sure going to run the sfc commands and dism and see if anything is amiss there. @sygnus21 sorry about that i have corrected it i did most of this on my mobile phone.

    You might experience this type of problem if something is loose in the PC. Open your PC case then clean all connectors from Video Card, Memory, HD/SSD then re-seat everything tightly. Also use different sata cable for the boot drive if available.

    In addition, I would recommend not to use Norton 360, Windows Defender is good enough.

    So as not to unnecessarily scare the OP there's nothing wrong with using Norton 360. I used Norton for years until I found Defender was just as good.... and free. In fact, I've not used any other AV since moving to Defender.

    Anyway my point is there's no need to fear Norton if that's what you wish to use. But yes, Defender is just as good... and it costs noting

    There was few file system errors they were repaired.

    There is no corrupted Windows system files.

    Can you boot your computer with bootable Ubuntu USB stick to see issue cause by Windows 10 or not.

    Create a bootable USB stick on Windows | Ubuntu
