Windows 10: Stuck on Loading Screen
So today was a rainy day, with really loud and powerful lightning. I was on my computer, which is right in front of the windows, and the window about 10 feet away from me was struck my lightning. There were sparks and the router, which happened to be right next to that window, powered off and my computer blacked out for a couple of seconds before turning back on. Now it's stuck on the loading screen (it shows the Windows 10 logo but there isn't the buffering icon beneath it; just the logo. nothing else.). Should I wait and see if it'll work tomorrow or should I just get out and buy a new one?
Hi lxoxoOreo and welcome to Tenforums.
It's possible that some of your system files were corrupted by the event. This is why I always recommend a Back-UPS for every desktop I work on. If your OS is reading/writing system files during a power loss, those files will be corrupted, rendering your OS unusable.
I don't think I would buy a new computer just yet (unless, of course, you were looking for a reason to do so!). If you can get into the recovery environment, it may be possible to repair the OS. See if this helps:

(Unless the sparks came from the computer and not the router....then, I would have a professional look at it.)
Have you tried completely powering off the PC and restarting it? It's also possible the BIOS settings have been corrupted and you could try loading the BIOS defaults.
I restarted my computer and it's stuck on this screen that has a Dell logo and below it is a bar that is not loading. It's stuck. It's been like that for a few hours and I don't know how to fix the problem.
Thanks for being part of such a helpful community.
