    Haydenbunny,

    Welcome to TenForums!

    Please try shutting down the computer pressing the Power button. You may have to press it for 15-20 seconds until it eventually shuts down.


    Now, press the Power button to turn on the PC, and, just as the round dots start rotating, press and hold the Power button down until it turns off.


    Repeat the same actions two more times, and, on the third try, instead of the round dots, see if the PC shows 'Please wait...' and then boots into Recovery mode.

    At this screen, press the following button: See Advanced Repair Options


    On the Choose an option screen, click: Troubleshoot > next window click: Advanced Options, and at the next window click: Startup Repair


    Let us know what develops.

    Thanks for the reply cotton ball, yes i tried that unfortunately also tried every other advanced repair option... No dice... I even removed my ssd which is installed in m.2 port and tried booting from another comps HDD I plugged in but computer wouldn't have a bar of that ... Getting worried something is wrong with my motherboard or something $5k comp broken after 5 months is scary...

    I had the same after an update several months ago, I had to restore from an image to get the pc working, all updates after were fine until the CrU which started the problem again, I decided to do a clean install which has fixed the problem.
