Hey guys,

So today when I turned on my PC I noticed I wasn't hearing any sound and my mic wouldn't work either. I then later realised that whenever I try to restart or shutdown my PC it will show a black screen but the computer will still be running. I can only stop this by holding down the power button on the computer to turn it off but turns back on as normal. So far I have tried:
  • running sfc /scannow in cmd (repaired a corrupt file but didnt fix the issue).
  • reverting the latest quality update but the freezing may have prevented it
  • tried windows startup repair
  • disabling fast startup (it was already disabled)
any help would be appreciated thanks!
