Pc in starting loop (on/off loop)

When I turned off my pc everything seemed to turn off inside the pc but the keyboard, mouse and headset did not. I tried turning the pc on again but then it just starts this starting loop on/off and on/off. As shown in the video link bellow you can hear a clicking noise everytime it starts, but the keyboard is still lit so there must still be power going through. Another problem is when I turn on the pc and it starts this weird loop, it won't shut down unless I break the power and so does the keyboard of course also stop lighting. I had this problem a month ago where someone said I should clean the computer because it was the PSU overheating and shutting down itself, I did clean the computer and waited for 48 hours, then the computer started. Now I also cleaned the computer but this time it won't work, I'm starting to think it might be something else. Yesterday when I started the computer it was an error and windows error message said "there was trouble starting your computer wait for restart :(" then it all worked, idk if this has something to do with this starting loop but I at least need some help. Thank you.

boot from an iso of win 10 and run chkdsk /f on the drive or do a startup repair.

Answer

click here download and make the media creation tool (follow the prompts on the site.

If the PC will not boot from the media you create then Boot the PC to BIOS (setup) and look for the setting Legacy Boot - save and exit and then it should boot from the media.

Once booted from the tool y7ou can then try a startup repair from the repair menu.

if that doesn't work you can use the command prompt from the same menu

once in command prompt type

chkdsk /f c:

let check disk run and on completion reboot the pC and see if it will start normaly.

UPDATE: Problem almost solved by reinserting the ram, now the monitor won't turn on, I have tried reinserting cable etc but it won't work, any ideas? Thank you.
