    Windows 10 crashes! Unable to boot up computer etc.


    In the first week or so, Windows performed quite smoothly (albeit with some slowdown playing games) and was for the most part perfect.

    However, quite recently my experience with Windows 10 has been so poor that I am regularly unable to even boot up my PC - being greeted by an alarming 'beeeeep' sound, followed by an immediate shutdown. In the rare circumstance where my computer actually does turn on properly, whenever I open Chrome or Edge it shortly freezes and I'm forced to hard reset my computer.

    I have tried reinstalling Windows 10 (deleting most of my files with it) but to no avail. Has anyone experienced a similar issue or have any suggestions? I have noticed that on the task manager the 'Disk' column is quite often red with 99% usage - is that normal?

    Not sure what your problem unless we have more information like PC model, memory, hard drive, graphic adapter, etc.
    I just checked your System Specs. All you have W10!
    If you have an opportunity to snap a picture or screen capture that will very helpful!

    Can you get into the Safe Mode with Networking?

    I have an AMD GPU (radeon 6570) a quad core intel CPU @ 2.50GHz, (Q8300) 4GB ram, 64bit OS is all I know

    Usually a long Beep is an error code, could be you have bad Ram, or a bad CPU. But it is hardware nevertheless. Try opening your box, then take your box to a gas station and use their Air Hose to remove all dust. Then when you get it home, pull your RAM and then carefully re-insert it.

    If your PC make is HP, they use a series of beep codes for various errors, check out long beep on their site. Actually my Media PC is HP, and I have gotten "Long Beep" when my sticks were bad, or not inserted well. It will also affect your whole system, with the same plagues you describe, reboots, boots that take an hour, frozen or very slow desktop and mouse.

    First, you’ll need to right-click on the Start button and choose Run to bring up the Run dialog.
    And then you’ll need to type the following into the Run box:

    msinfo32

    A system Information will Open with System Summary, Hardware Resources, Components and Software Environment.

    For example, One of my system:

    Dell Dimension 9250 (Q6600)
    AMD Radeon HD6570
    Intel 82566DC Gigabit
    SamSung 850 EVO SSD
    4 GB memory
    Windows 10 Prof (10.0.10240) Build 10240
    ...

    Next you have tell us what beep sound, One Long on short, or One long with 3 short, etc. Depending on the BIOS or UEFI, the Beep code give you information about possible failure in CPU, memory, etc.

    Using an air hose at the gas station?? Oh lawd...that is so 'A-Team' And while it may clean out the dust, it's also a recipe for disaster. @OP, pick up a can of compressed if you are going to do this as it is much safer.

    As said previously, some OEM manufacturers give a list of what the beep codes mean. Sometimes it can be as simple as a loose graphics card, loose cable or something wrong with the bios settings (the bios battery could have died for example meaning all the settings have been lost).

    FYI - a beep code is the computer notifying the user of the result of a short diagnostic testing sequence the computer performs when first powering up. Therefore you really need to confirm the make/model of your pc and the motherboard to help determine the cause. Quite often the beep code can be particular unhelpful though.
