  1. The other day I was on my laptop and suddenly it froze, so I manually shut it down and when I tried to start it up again it got to the windows start up screen but then takes about 10 minutes until a BSOD flashes up to quick for me to make out any details and then restarts. If I try to start start-up repair it just goes to a blue background but does not show the actual start up repair window?
    What do I do?

    The hard drive has probably failed...
