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

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!

Thank you, ac3mark 1

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?
