So a few days ago I was watching Netflix and then my computer crashed, turned it back on and no problem. A few hours later it crashes again but this time when I turn it back on it gets stucks on the Lenovo start up screen with the dots going in a circle. I did some research and only thing I found was to restore my laptop. Of course wasn't smart and didn't make backups so I had to restore from Initial. At first it worked and first thing i did was update back to windows 10 (over night becuase at that point it was 2 am) and then proceed to install steam (and a few games), Skype, discord, chrome, 7zip, teamspeak and avast nothing suspicious or anything. But after I would say around 7 hours the desktop starts crashing and bugging out so I reset my computer 2-3 times and then eventually I get to just a black screen with just a cursor. Couldn't find a working solution so once again I factory data reset it. Then I got stuck on the Lenovo start up screen some times seeing just the spinning dots. Tried resetting again and no change. When on the Lenovo screen came up some times I would just see spinning dots, sometime It would say "automatic restoration" or something along those lines and "diagnosing your pc".

Seems like all the restart probably corrupted the hard drive. You can try performing a Lenovo OneKey recovery. To do this, press and hold the 'Novo' button on your computer. You may need a paper chip to be able to press it. Then, you should have an option for recovery
