    PC Will Not Start Windows


    Hello everyone. I seem to be having an issue with my PC.
    I turned it on tonight to play some games and now it won't start into windows.

    When I first turned the computer on, everything went fine. I started up steam, discord, skype, etc. I started having issues when I went to play Valorant. I told my computer to start Valorant which had a small (like 30 mb) launcher update. The update installed but when it tried to launch Valorant, it gave me a weird error message and said it couldn't boot Valorant and I should try again. So I closed out the window and opened up task manager to make sure Valorant wasn't still running in the background. I tried to open Valorant a second time, after about 5 seconds an error popped up, this time generated by windows. I tried to read the error but my PC pretty much instantly crashed and went to the windows 10 blue screen. First time computer has ever blue screened. After it gathered its data or whatever it tried to reboot but blue screened yet again. This happened probably two more times before I shut the computer all the way down. I turned off the PSU, held down the power button on my case to discharge any leftover power and then tried again. No luck. Then I reseated my ram and gpu as well as taking the motherboard battery out for a minute and then putting it back in. I made sure to reconfigure my bios settings and then tried again. Nothing. Now whenever I turn the PC on, the boot screen tells me that it is "starting automatic system repair" and then tells me that it is diagnosing my issue. It diagnoses for about 10-15 minutes before telling me that "Startup Repair couldn't repair your PC." It gives me the option to shut down or go into advanced options from which I can troubleshoot and try to force windows to launch.

    Does anyone have any thoughts?

    Also, when I try to force windows to start through the advanced options it blue screens and gives this error "Bad System Config Info."

    If you haven't already, I would create installation media using the ISO for the Windows 10 version you are using.

    Boot from that and enter the Repair environment.

    Select Advanced Options, then Troubleshooting, then select System Restore.

    Try rolling back using the newest restore point.

    Thanks for the quick reply, I'm going to backup some of my files overnight and try this in the morning. I will keep you updated.
    Thanks again.

    After selecting Repair this computer, select Troubleshoot, then Advanced Options.

    Select System Restore.
