Question Windows 10 stuck in boot loop

Hello everyone!

My pc has recently been getting into boot loops. I tried creating a new windows 10 installing using a USB but it still leads to the blue screen. When the 'Preparing automatic repair' text comes, it stops then gives me the blue screen. I can't even boot into safe mode. Today in the morning I somehow got in and updated my drivers, windows updates and even installed a new windows. I didn't want to turn off my PC incase the boot loop happens again but then out of nowhere a blue screen came and then I was back to the boot loop. I've contacted microsoft support multiple times and they were completely useless about the situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and stay safe.

Hi! I kept booting and booting and suddenly it let me on windows 10. Can you help me fix this so it does't happen when I boot again?

Is this a custom built PC or brand name?
If custom, what parts have you got? does PC have an ssd or hdd?
If brand name, what make/model?

so when it boot loops, how far into loading windows does it get before restart?
Does the BSOD say anything? there are 280 odd messages that can show on a BSOD so I can't guess what it says.

does it mention srttrail.txt?

screenshots might help, im sure it will happen again.
