Hello all!
I'm currently at a loss of what to do with my windows 10 machine. I'm guessing that is went through an update a week or so back that went corrupt. Now I am unable to do anything with it. The second anything windows tries to load it either freezes or pops up the BSOD with differening stop codes, from system service exception to attempted write to read only memory.
The computer doesn't boot into windows at all so I can't get a minidump. any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

On another PC, download the Windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a win 10 installer on USB

lets see if running system restore will fix it

change boot order so USB is first, hdd second
boot from installer
on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose system restore
pick a recent date, possibly before update and let system roll back to it and hopefully fix the problem

Still getting the cycling BSOD.
System service exception, page fault in non pages area, as well as what I've mentioned before.
Could it be a fried Cpu?

Does windows work now? or crash right away still?

how far do you get? are you getting to login screen? if so, do this
open the power menu in bottom right of screen
while holding the left shift, click restart now button
this loads you into advanced startup on restart
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose start up options
click the restart button
choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.
Pc will restart and load safe mode

go to C:/windows/minidump and copy the files to a USB. On a working PC, upload the files to a file sharing web site and show the link here.

now if the bsod are drivers, you shouldn't get them in safe mode. the codes could be drivers still. Need to see dumps before we sure.

I feel if it were a fried CPU you wouldn't be able to boot.

Sorry for such a late response I was in the middle of a move and just fired it back up to try again.

Unfortunately It cannot load windows at all. As soon as it gets passed the screen that says press del for bios, it will attempt to load. Not even get a full spinning wheel and crash. That with or without trying to boot the recovery media

what are specs of the PC? Do you have an ssd?

Need to get into BIOS and redirect it to use the USB, as if you still getting BSOD, it could be still trying to boot off the Boot drive. If we can get it to use USB, we can do a number of things. It sounds like windows likely needs a reinstall, not sure what went wrong, but we can hopefully save data off the Boot drive if you need it

if we can boot off USB you can do this to save the data
change boot order so USB is first, hdd second
boot from installer
on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose command prompt
type notepad and press enter
in notepad, select file>open
Use file explorer to copy any files you need to save to USB or hdd

now if you have an ssd you could use a feature of your BIOS called Secure erase to wipe it or you can just do that as part of the clean install process - Clean install
