Hello.

Today i downloaded a software that infected me. It was a legitimate site that i have used before, but this time my entire PC went down and i can't get it back up and running.

 

I downloaded the software, executed the exe file, cmd window popped up for a fast second and closed. To my suspicion i checked my process list and noticed a weird process eating my CPU, i force closed it and rebooted my computer.

My PC won't boot now, im getting a red screen with an indicator constantly moving and my cooler system seems to be working rather fast (liquid cooling) Can a virus like overclock my PC or something??

 

I tried the F8 to do a secure boot but nothing is responding.

 

Windows 10 OS

and it is located on my SSD

 

How can i fix this?

 

Please any help appreciated, if i could only boot the system up..

 

I do not have a CD / DVD drive on my PC, never thought i would need it when i made it.

I am not an expert in hardware but I wonder whether you have a power supply fault. Maybe you should open a topic in the Hardware forum here.

 

In any event if you are unable to boot to System Recovery options we can't get a log to look for a possible malware cause.
