Model year is 2021?
What I would do is to download a Linux Mint ISO on a bootable flash drive (8 gigs), then boot from it. It will NOT change anything to Windows. See if you have the same issue while running Mint. If you don't see any change, then it could be windows corruption. Open a command prompt as admin, and run this: sfc /scannow
See if finds any corrupt files.
