I can gather more information if needed.
Did you make any changes to your PC, like installing an app or updating drivers?

Disconnect any peripherals (printers, USB flash drives, etc) and just leave the essential (power, keyboard & mouse and display) for the computer to boot.

Check your system temps with HWMonitor (zip version).
