A faulty hard disk cannot cause these kinds of problems.

 

What happens if you re-enable your anti-virus, etc? Does it get disabled again shortly after? 

Kind regards,

I could not re-enable the anti vrius. I scan it once with AVG in safe mode with networking and found 81 infected files.

I got the audio and wireless enable but not the anti virus. The laptop was taking forever to start up and now the window startup is not showing.

 

I use the lenovo diagnostic but i cancel it because it was taking to long to finish and after a message pop up saying hard disk failure or it is bad (cannot remember exactly what it said). I was wondering if a virus/malware can cause this.

I am sure 60% sure it is a malware but just wanna be 100% sure.
