Hello Jarrod and welcome to Seven Forums.

First, it would help a lot if you could provide your system specs. At the top of any Forum page click on "User CP". Then in the left column click on "Edit System Spec". Fill out as much info as you can. A free tool called Speccy can give you all the info.

Can you access Advanced Boot Options and start your computer in Safe Mode?

Advanced Boot Options

If yes, try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two, SFC tutorial.) This scan will attempt to locate damaged or corrupt system files and replace them with a fresh copy. If problems are found, run the scan 3 times rebooting backing into Safe Mode after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Once the scan(s) are run, see if you can start your computer normally (without going into Safe Mode.) But if the SFC scan shows no integrity violations it means it didn't find any problems. Or if it shows that some files were fixed but others could not be fixed it will be necessary to try other troubleshooting steps. one of the Forum experts prepared these two troubleshooting tutorials. They are time consuming but have helped many to solve their problems. They can also provide information about whether or not your hard drive (or other hardware like RAM, motherboard, etc.) is failing.

Or you could skip the troubleshooting and jump immediately to a repair install. But if there is a hardware issue, a repair install will not fix it.
