Win 10 freezes after startup

Hello, WIN10 freezes after startup (don't matter what action you take). In safe mode everything works fine. It's a relatively new comp (1 yrs) and has SSD (win) and an extra HD.

Any ideas?

Run sfc in safe mode. Check if errors found and repaired. Reboot, and leave for ten mins or so. Try to login and if successful leave again for ten mins or so. Might be a stuck update or driver issue. Check task manager as to what processes are running.

Hi, Thanks for the reply Tried that just now - no error could be found :(

What kind of peripherals do you have connected?

Are you getting any errors or just complete lock-ups?

It sounds like a driver issue due to a potentially failing component. It is just isolating what that component is. Whatever it is doesn't appear to start in safe mode which unfortunately doesn't narrow it down much.

Just a complete freeze. If it helps, the first thing to freeze is the screen. I will then have 1-2 seconds of mouse movements and then everything locks up. For some reason, it seems to not happen now. (Haven't changed anything). Not running safe mode and the problem isn't there. It was here yesterday so I assume it will be back soon.
