I'd try resetting the CMOS (BIOS) to factory defaults first.

If you don't know how to do this, what is the make and model number of your computer?

If it's a 'homebuilt' or unknown brand, what is the make and model number of the motherboard?

If I have a problem like you, I first try a "Last Good Configuration" to boot up Windows......restart your PC and usually can tap the F5 key (or F8 key) after the BIOS protocol and just before Windows starts. If that doesn't work, I then try a System Restore to an earlier date (point) when my system was working well......usually a week or so prior to the beginning date of your problem.

APIC = Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller

A lan boot means that on startup of the computer it is looking for a Local Area Network to boot from.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

In bios there should be a "reset to defaults".
You need to reset the bios.
