Check Event Viewer for details on the errors.

Thanks for the advice, yet I do not know what to do from there. Were you
wishing I inform you of what I found in the event viewer?

It may go along way towards helping you.

When you view the logged events in Event Viewer (double-click them in the
right-hand pane) in the upper right corner, third button down is a copy to
clipboard, then you can paste in the body of a reply message.

Please do so for each of the different System Log events (that are a Type:
'Error' or 'Warning') since last boot so we can see all of the event detail.

Also check Device Manager for error codes and or non-starting devices.
