Cant Boot at startup

Hello,so i had windows 8 and 10 last installed didnīt like both and switched back to win 7 ultimate,everything was fine until yesterday where it installed many updates.When i turn my computer on it starts to work but after 2-3 sec i hear the sound isnīt the same as it is normally when starting,like it stops and works slowly(the sound is monoton,not getting louder, like its staying on same spot/Sry hard to explain) and my mouse/keyboard/screen are all black.I cant push the Shut down button to manually shut it down i have to unplug it from the wall wait few sec and than it starts working again normally.I think it has something to do with the updates,because it installed like 164 at once and maybe it installed something that doesntīt work with my Pc.If you didntīt understand something plz ask iīll try to explain better

If that does not work after holding the button for appr. 20 seconds, then you have a hardware problem.

That could be a disk problem. Maybe the disk does not start fast enough with the rotation. It would be useful to run some disk diagnostics. See on the webpage of your disk manufacturer whether they offer any diagnostic programs.

Run a few Startup Repairs. If problems persist try a System Restore to before the Updates.

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image.

Since you can get into Win7, work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with the hardware tests, establishing a Clean Boot, checking for infection and testing System files.
