I run Windows 7 professional
Recently I installed a driver package for my dual shock three controller.
After a BSoD while running Dark Souls 3 on my PC I rebooted and began to get msvcp120.dll errors upon startup, my Norton was unable to run a system scan due to installation errors, and I was unable to connect to the internet. After attempting a Norton utilities system restore the Norton restore file disappeared from the list of available restore files. I attempted a registry cleanup, then rebooted.
I received a notification about an issue with a recently installed driver package. I then opened Malwarebytes and started a scan, and Malwarebytes found an issue with something called PC1data, in my haste / frustration I cleaned it and once again rebooted. Now I am unable to boot up my computer and it stays at the BIOs screen, and even then I cannot access the BIOs.
I am hoping I didnt brick my PC.
I powered down the PSU and am thinking of pulling my two hard drives and scanning them in my other PC. How would I go about scanning them and creating logs of exactly what happened? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
EDIT 20:48 PST
Just attempted startup twice, passed BIOS and went straight to Windows startup repair. After about thirty seconds both times received BSOD. Attempted startup once more and it got as far as windows startup repair until auto rebooting without BSOD. PSU is off again, will be reading through BSOD section of this site as well.
