Windows 10: Crashing seconds after login

    Crashing seconds after login

    Hi Guys, my computer has been acting strange as of 2 days ago. I was initially just browsing the net and everything stopped loading. I thought my internet went out and I shut down my computer thinking nothing of it. I tried starting it up again later that day but it would freeze a few seconds after I log in.

    The strange this is, it works for about 5-10 s then my pointer changes to that spinning blue wheel and everything becomes unresponsive. I can't click anything or use my keyboard, but I can still move the pointer. Here are some of the things I've tried:

    • Restart in safe mode (same type of crashing occurs, can move mouse but can't do anything else)
    • Restart in safe mode with command prompt to run sfc /scannow. (initial attempt froze at 100%, hard rebooted and tried again but now it freezes at the file verification stage)
    • "Reset this PC", ( froze at 8%)

    I'm thinking it might be a hardware problem and this happened rather spontaneously. I did not install any new software recently.

    Since it's within a few days, is System Restore an option?

    Unfortunately, I don't have any saved restore points.
