Hi there and welcome

Can you do the following please

At the login screen, hold down the SHIFT button and with it held down, click on the power icon and click restart

Still with shift held down, let it restart and it will take you to a menu

Choose from the menu Troubleshoot, then advance

Then choose System Restore

Follow the onscreen steps and preform a system restore, using the last restore point

Let this complete and when it has, tell me please if the computer then starts.
