My laptop stopped working a few weeks ago and it loaded up to the initial black windows screen (with loading bar) and would indefinitely stay there. I erased the whole drive (wrote zero's on it with seagate tools) and I did a reinstall.
My HD froze and refused to go any further at these points:
1) When I was installing, I did the normal NTFS format - it paused at 5% and didnt progress. Switched off and its exactly the same problem.
2) I did a quick NTFS install and Windows installed and runs ok it seems. I decided to do a Chkdsk on it - it's frozen at 50% for the past few hours.
What do I do and why is it freezing!!???
Thank you so much for helping.
