i even can't move past the logo . like.it takes forever to boot
What could have happened...
Windows was writing to the drive when the power got cut.
Now you have a file that's corrupt.
Windows needs this file to boot and can't.
As I said...I may consider a clean install of Windows.
If you need files off the drive you have...do a clean install of Windows on a different drive....with only that drive connected....then power down and add the old drive and you may be able to get data from it.

You can try this first, although my experience with this has yielded few positive results. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/repair-windows-10

You can also try booting into safe mode, or boot to a USB stick that has Windows 10 install media on it and try to repair it that way. Just some options before needing to do a clean install. I concur with everyone here. Doesn't seem like a hardware issue, more like a corruption of Windows files.

May happen. But that is rare occasion. Much more often Windows doesn't boot due to corrupted files and/or registry. Run Windows repair. See link above that someone posted.
