Question Computer acting up suddenly


Dec 20, 2018
So I was gaming last night on my computer ( the parts in it are:

Intel i5 3470,
Gigabyte ga-z68p-ds3,
Amd rtx570 saphire 8gb,
Gskill sniper 4gb,
Samsung ram 2X2gb,
Tp link wn781nd,
Thermaltake litepower 750w)

and it was working fine, no issues or anything... So just before I go to bed I turn it off through windows instead of just using the power button and no issues there. I wake up in the morning and now the computer will not get past the windows loading screen, if I do a complete restart (unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug back in) it will go to the windows recovery screen after attempting to boot. I have tried the SSD I use windows on in my laptop and it boots just fine on that but refuses to work for my pc. I have reseated the ram and gpu, taken each stick out to see if one of the sticks magically ruined itself over night but there was no Change.
