3400G failing to boot windows after adrenaline install

My windows 10 has stopped working after the lastest version of adrenaline was installed.  Even worse, I tried to load off the Win10 USB stick I used to build it a month or two ago and hat won't even load properly. I've reflashed the BIOS, reset the CMOS jumpers and generally done the obvious stuff.

When I try and boot the Win10 USB (or from the SSD) I think it's failing and then booting from the SSD.  When the SSD tries to start I get this strange screen. It'll go pale blue then the strange characters appear 1 by 1. Then finally the QR code and a few seconds later a reboot.

Have run memtest and discovered one of my memory modules has errors. Have removed that but the problem persists. This probably explains the occasional reboot I was getting. I'm going to leave memtest running on the other module for a few hours just to be sure.
