    Hey there. sorry i didnt try the clean boot or anything, but the problem fixed itself. for anybody having something similar, it fixed itself because of 1 of 2 things, either unninstalling and reinstalling my graphics driver, or the windows pro update.
    i had the windows pro update trying to install since forever , but it always gave me errors, now that i had to install the driver, i also tried installing windows pro update, i pressed repeat when it said there was an error, and after 1:30hrs of waiting, it seems like i can open the start menu etc.
    Thank you guys so much for the support. It made me feel more at ease knowing i could count on your support. hopefuly i won't have to post another thread, but if i do, it will be here. cheers!

    Good.. now, next step... since you have a working scenario (make sure sleep, hibernate, restart, start menu, Cortana etc etc all work) get yourself a copy of either
    Aomei Backupper or (more complex GUI)
    Macrium Relect (both free).

    Install, create the boot CD and set your PC up so it can boot from a bootable CD.
    You'll need a large external USB drive (e.g.) say at least 2x total size of what you're going to back up.

    Create your first disk image.

    This is a complete compressed copy of whichever drives/partitions you have selected.
    If sthg goes wrong- even if you need to replace the hard disk- you can then get your PC up and running again from that.

    Then make incremental or differential backups (smaller, faster) before any major change and periodically.

    You can also extract files from your backup should you wish.

    This can save you a huge amount of time and frustration in the future- it only takes one small thing to make Windows unbootable.. and can save you from HDD failure.

    Please complete your system specs as this may help someone to help you.

    Please try a clean boot and advise the outcome.

    If things work normally, it's something you have installed.

    Also please run chkdsk e.g.
    CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8
    To do sfc /scannow you'll a working bottable win 10 disk or usb. To make one just download a win 10 iso and for making disc: Imgburn or usb:Rufus (sorry cannot provide links because I'm on my phone)

    No... only true if the PC is unbootable. It is run from a command prompt.
