Running Windows on an old ASUS laptop. Around a year ago it refused to boot. I had difficulty getting it to check for errors during boot and when it did I left it for a day but it did not progress after that initial screen. A couple of days ago I tried to boot using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. It got me into the desktop but everything is incredibly unresponsive, much like how it was before it had issues booting.
Using the touchpad is responsive, however I cannot click on anything, or on the occasion that it works, it takes extremely long to open. For example I managed to get the settings page up but it closed by itself after a few minutes. Microsoft OneDrive also automatically boots up and remains there for a couple of hours before I am able to close it. While doing so Windows alerts me that the program is unresponsive and gives the option to close it. I have previously done so and it only crashes the system.
What do I do to fix this? Is there a way for me to recover the files in the system or to repair it completely?
