    Were there any possible "triggering events" during your last successful boot that might have caused your issue? Did you install any additional programs, make any changes to your laptop/PC settings, do any driver updates perhaps? Also, what AV are you currently using?

    I'm sorry for using that AV abbreviation. It stands for Anti-Virus.
