It's locked up and won't come back so move ahead with the shutdown. Then figure it out from there.
There are a lot of reasons for this to happen but the story isn't enough for me to hazard a guess.
You could tell more but I can't tell if this is a desktop you made or something else. If a desktop, remove the case cover to give max cooling which is a common cause. It's debatable if we call that a hardware issue since many never clean the insides and this does happen exactly as described.
I just started my Win 10 PC, that i did not use in nearly a year.
After about 1-2 hours of usage, strange blue patterns that where kind of regular but looked glitchy as well appeared. The PC started to lag tremendously and finally, it crashed.
After it restarted itself, the windows problem solving program started, and suggested me to restart the computer again.
I did this, but before it arrived at the windows user slog in panel, the display disconnected and nothing happened anymore. The PC was still running.
after waiting for some time i decided to restart the machine again, and this time i chose to reset the system to a state just before i stopped using the computer around 1 year ago. It started the progress, but after a while, it stopped, giving no reason, and send me back into windows pre-boot problem solving program.
In my confusion, i clicked on restart again, and this time it actually booted and windows was running. The problem was that the display resolution was all messed up, so after I did some googling i just tried to restart the system again, just to be looped back in to the problem solving program again.
Then i clicked on the type of resetting which is not in the advanced options folder, to bring windows to the state it was, when i bought it.
when it came to the part where it stated "Installing Windows", with a circular progress bar, it came to around 5% after crashing and giving me the blue patterns again, this time just the patterns with nothing else on the screen.
This is the state the PC is running right now. I have no idea what is going on, and i do not want to shut it down and restart again, in case the windows installation is still going on, and just the display-computer communication is damaged...
Should I just wait and see if something changes?
Can an old driver create this type, and this extend of damage/chaos?
Could It be broken Hardware?
