OS: Windows 10 (factory = windows 8) 64 bit
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT755M 2GB
1 When I was able to access computer HDD disk usage would randomly spike to 100% for a couple of minutes every few minutes.
2 Stuck at lenovo loading screen (won't load onekey recovery or log on screen).
1 Shutdown laptop using start button, after a while of black screen laptop would not shut down so I shut it down with power button. The next day windows would not start last thing I installed was Hamachi and steam game called Life is Strange.
What I've tried:
I have tried factory reset. For a while it worked but I was having the above problem 1.
I tried a clean boot and upon restart I now have problem 2 and can no longer factory reset using onekey recovery.
I'm thinking there is a virus or hardware problem having to do with my HDD and what I have come up with is to
a) use something called DBAN to reformat, however I have tried to boot from flashdrive and although in the bios booting from flashdrive is enabled it won't boot ie. I have no clue what i'm doing.
b) reinstall windows from a disk after formatting. Again I want to boot through flashdrive but I'm not sure how to get bios to boot it.
c) replacing the hdd with an ssd so I bought an ssd and think I know how to replace it but won't be able to use the migration software. My question is: will I be able to install windows if I just replace the HDD with a blank SSD? And if there is a virus will the SSD catch it??
Please I need my computer for work and school any help is greatly appreciated! :'(
