After opening up my computer to clean it a bit, whenever I boot it up it just shows a black screen until I Restart it and then the screen shows it again

Also, I have another issue with a file that shows its empty and is 80 GB when in fact the folder is full of 100Gb+ worth of stuff and is 200GB in total

Here's how it looks like https://imgur.com/a/qSzpe9B

Here are my specs ( just got them from speccy ) I know my pc is terrible but that's irrelevant

Motherboard

Thank you
Next time it goes black screen on you, press the control alt delete, start new program and enter EXPLORER. If the desktop paints, that indicates you have a process that is trying to start at startup, and it hangs. Let us know if the EXPLORER repaints the screen!

As for the Files, try this:
https://windirstat.net/

You should be able to get a visual indication of what is bloating it out!

Say "Thank you" 1

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

Sorry for the late reply but I have already disabled all startup items and when I click control alt delete nothing happens and Windirstat looks normal and says the folder contains like 90G.B worth of stuff ( i think it had more stuff I am afraid something might have got deleted

SO, does the numlock key light up when NUMLOCK is pressed, or not? Does it respond to a WINDOWS key press?
