PC crashes and freezes on startup

For the past week my PC has been crashing and has blue screened around 3 times. The majority of the time it is shortly after logging on.
I've been trying to figure out the problem and I had just reinstalled graphics drivers. I just restarted the pc and logged on but the screen is just black. It was able to view a practically empty task manager for a few minutes before it froze.

Is this relevant or should I keep looking for other causes?

  1. What's the blue screen error code that you're getting?

    Also, when you reinstall drivers, make sure to uninstall older drivers. Use DDU for graphics drivers

  2. All I can recall from the blue screen was STOP 0x0000005C, I also did DDU for uninstalling my drivers.

    The internet is telling me that you should install Windows update "2919355"

    Not sure how helpful that can be to you. So check Device Manager. See if anything in there has a little yellow or red mark on the icon, and update device drivers on anything that does.
