My laptop started acting up a couple of weeks ago, but I paid no attention to it as I thought they were just small hiccups. Then a couple of days ago, my laptop gets stuck at "Starting Windows" screen upon booting up. I tried everything but nothing worked so
I had to restore the laptop to factory default settings. After restoring it, I tried to recover my data by using EaseUS recovery program, but after finding deleted files the laptop turned off and I was presented with a BSOD. I had no choice but to restore
After I've restored the laptop again, everything seemed to work fine until it had to mandatory reboot wherein, upon booting up, it gets stuck again in "Starting Windows" screen, a problem I've encountered before I restored it.
Is there a problem with the hard drive itself or is it maybe software related. I'm hoping that the hard drives aren't the problem since I don't want to spend money on a new one.
