Windows crashes when diagnosing

I have a desktop that has been crashing on and off for a while. And now when I start it up it starts the automatic repair tool then crashes. Then i start it again and it goes into diagnosing the situation and it crashes i have no clue what is going on but i have no crash at all when i go into the bios. It is a pc a friend helped me build about a year ago.

have you ever turned power off just by pressing the power button instead off using the proper shutdown icon.

I did power button off once on a pc because it locked up , when the pc was turned on again I saw a message come up saying 3 reg entries corrupted , they must have been vital to the start up process as windows repair tool could not fix it , also , this stopped my recovery discs working

You are probably going to have to do a startup repair from a DVD or USB iso, assuming windows 10 you can download and make the boot media from here
