Hi,

Have you tried this?

A) Shut down computer, by holding down the power button until it turns off.
B) Now with one hand hold down the following keys at the same time, command-option-p-r, and turn on computer with other hand. If you find this difficult, then turn the computer on and then very quickly press the above keys.
C) Hold them down until your Mac reboots again and you hear the startup chime.
D) Keep holding the keys down until you hear it chime 3 times.
E) Let go of the keys and let your Mac reboot normally

Let us know how it goes.

Hi,
Have you tried safe mode if not here you go.
  1. Turn off your Mac
  2. Turn on your Mac and immediately after hearing the startup tone, press and hold the shift key.
  3. Keep holding the Shift key, and wait for the login screen
  4. When you see the login screen, release the Shift key
  5. Your Mac is now in safe mode
  6. Log into your Mac
Let use know how things go.
