E540 Malware or hard disk failure

Donot have much time to write what i want but i will update/edit tomorrow.

I want to find out if i have a malware or hard disk failure on my pc.

Do hard disk failure cause antivirus, audio and wireless to be disable?

Re: E540 Malware or hard disk failure

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?

Re: E540 Malware or hard disk failure

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.
