screen is just black with cursor disappearing and appearing in the center of the screen and num lock is turning on and off continuously. ctrl+alt+del or ctrl+shift+esc does not work. i can access command prompt in advanced startup options so maybe i can do something there?

in boot device priority i have
1st FLOPPY DRIVE
HDD: PM-Hitachi HDP
ATAPI CD-ROM
changing the order does nothing

don't know if it's related but in power options processor power management i had maximum processor state set to 80% cause i was getting a blue screen crash on 100%

is there a command prompt command that would diagnose HDD or something like that?
i tried before the option to reinstall windows but keep files and it failed

also is that normal that just power turning off during a restart would mess up file system or HDD like that?
thank you guys for help tho
