Tell us what version of Blender you are running.

Try running Blender from the command line to look for interesting messages.

I am using the most recent (Blender file v2.79b)

And I do not know hoe to run Blender from the command line

You need to open a Windows Command Prompt, then navigate to the folder that Blender is installed in, and type blender and hit <enter> to run Blender. When it quits, the window will remain so you can see what the messages were that it displayed, which might indicate what the problem is.

Also, try the beta 2.80 and/or the latest 2.79 experimental builds from:

https://builder.blender.org/download/

I have tried to run it through console for some reason either I'm doing something wrong, or it's not doing that.

However from what I can tell there's a thing that says "AL lib: (EE) UpdateDeviceParams: Failed to set 44100hz, got 48000hz instead" on launch

That is not the problem. That is just Blender complaining about being unable to change your audio settings.

Your graphics card Asus Strix GTX 1070ti should be fine as long as you have an up-to-date driver.
Generally, the video driver from the manufacturer works better than the one from your operating system.

We need to see the entire message after you type in 'blender'. You can make your console window larger if necessary.

Running Blender 2.79b in console
To run blender from the console:

  • Open the folder (with Windows Explorer) where blender.exe is located (most likely "C:\Program Files\Blender")
  • Hold the Shift-Key and right click in the folder.
  • A context menu comes up. Click on "Open Command Window Here" or "Open Powershell here" or something similar.
  • * If it is the command window (cmd), type: blender
  • * Otherwise, if it is the powershell, type: ./blender
  • And hit Enter.

Blender should now open, and print something to the console window.

Running Blender 2.80 beta in console (easier)

  • Get Blender 2.80 beta from https://builder.blender.org/download/
  • Unzip the .zip file.
  • The unzipped folder will contain a file called "blender_debug_log.cmd". Double click it.
  • A command window comes up (with Instructions).
  • Hit enter to continue.
  • After Blender closes (or crashes), a folder will come up with log files called "blender_debug_output.txt" and "blender_system_info.txt". Paste them here.
