  • Hi,

    Please go to the location %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP, check if there is any dump file generated there. You can help us collect the dump file for further research.

    From the event log, some services can't start and system files has been corrupted. Since you performed a system restore, but the problem still exist, a direct way is to perform a clean install after you back up your important data. In this way, we can troubleshoot the issue by determining that if it is a system problem or a hardware problem.

    You can download the image from here and burn it into a USB drive.

    Best regards,
