    Frustrated, as in steam pouring out of my ears!

    Try writing down the password. The password MUST be entered exactly as when it was created. Upper and lower case must be correct. Empty spaces are very much frowned upon. You do not mention which version of Linux Mint Cinnamon you are working with but I think I recall reading something...

    can i immediately install os such as linux for example after use DBAN to wipe all my data ?

    Can't Delete Downloaded Files

    How much (or little) free space is there on that hard drive? The first screenshot you posted shows "Cannot move file to trash, do you want to delete immediately? The file "Jami" cannot be moved to trash." Have you tried selecting "delete immediately" from that dialog box? Also, what does the...

    Commands log format - Has the commands log been edited?

    Yes. But we had to start somewhere as there in not enough information provided. This would be a very good place to start also. It would seem that you really do not have enough information to start making accusations. Step by step through a process of elimination is how I would approach it.

    Some Linux kernel versions are known to have issues with the Ryzen 5. I think it is the 5.4.* series of kernels but don't quote me on that. May be worth looking into.
