So recently I’ve been having GPU issues but progressively, things started to get worse. I used to be able to access safe mode but now I am unable to do so (I realized the GPU isn’t the only thing acting up). I removed my GPU from the system as I try to solve this new problem. I tried to do a system restore but it says I must enable protection on this drive. So I tried entering rstrui.exe /offline:C:\windows=active after the VSS started. This did solve that problem, but then I get the error message “System Restore failed while restoring the registry from the restore point. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070002)” At this point I tried to do a system reset. I tried to reset and keep my files and to not keep my files, but I still get the error message “There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made.” At this point I’m completely stuck. If anyone had any solutions I would gladly accept them, but at this point I think a factory reset is the only option. The motherboard I’m using is the ROG Maximus X Code.If you need any other information I will gladly provide. Thank you in advance!
 
What is installed as the boot drive? Have any diagnostics been run on the drive?

Install media can be made easily with the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft (since this is windows 10 no key needs to be entered to re-install on the same system). A flash drive of 8 GB or more is needed.

If you have important files you don't have backed up (always have backups!) you can either boot in with an Ubuntu install disk or install Windows over the current installation without formatting.

In option 1, boot the Ubuntu installer, and when a choice is presented to "try" or "install," click "Try Ubuntu." The desktop will load from the install media (it will be slower than an installed OS but it should see the Windows drive and has the drivers to read NTFS and recover the files to some external drive)

In the other case, when the Windows installer comes to the partition / drive selection screen, just click "next" without formatting or changing the drive layout. The old windows will be moved to "Windows.old" and your old user folder will be put into "Windows.old/Users/[yourusername]"

In either case your programs and games will need to be re-installed
