    PC wont boot to get to my windows 10 password screen unless I hit F8


    I've done no changes to my pc but today the pc boots up, it just wont boot to the windows password screen I just get a black screen unless I hit F8 on that screen, which I know should be the safe mode option but I'm on windows 10 Pro and that doesn't work when I click F8 to get the safe mode, now if I restart my pc on this black screen it then boots up to the password screen, I've removed my ram and it isn't that issue as still happening

    Currently On Version 10.0.19042 Build 19042

    The screen you are seeing is the Lock Screen, which is usually a Microsoft generated Wallpaper screen, that if you hit any key, like the Enter key or F8. key will take you to the Password Screen.
