If you are going to ask for help then you should provide a minimum set of details. Like, what kind of system is it - specifically who made it, and what is the model number. If you can tell from the boot messages what version of the operating system is it running on. Was it used in a business? (The type of business can often provide clues.) What were you doing before the problem started?

From your message we can't even tell if this is a vintage system. Remember, this is a vintage computer forum for hobbyists.

Also, duplicate posts are discouraged. I see you are already asking about this same problem another thread. Please continue the discussion there.
