Unable to Start PsychoPy (DLL load failed: the file cannot be accessed by the system)

Hello everyone,

OS : Windows 10 (64)

PsychoPy version : 2021.1.2

Standard Standalone? (y/n) y

What are you trying to achieve?:
I had no problem using PsychoPy until I bought a new laptop. Soon as I downloaded PsychoPy and installed it, I was not able to run it. When I clicked on the icon, the loading circle would appear next to the cursor and then nothing. I have tried troubleshooting advice, I also dug up all possible solution on the forum (disappeared screen, etc.) and found nothing. I will attach a screenshot with the error that I get.

If anyone can help, I would be thankful!

Cheers
