I ask this community for some assistance in the next step, do I have a hardware issue, or do I reset the pc through settings, or use installation media to fix this? I've done research and nothing has given a clear direction to go in

    Before trying anything else, you can open your computer, clean the dusts, remove the ram sticks, clean and re install them. After that start your computer normally. If the problem doesn't solve, get your bootable windows pendrive and initiate "Startup Repair" if it still doesn’t work, you might have to seek expert assistance. Hope your problem resolves. Thanks.
