Yes it could be hardware but given what you wrote, Windows might be installed but you wrote nothing about the post Windows install work. Drivers, etc.
There are crack versions of the OS that do what you listed so for that the fix is to get a real version.
Beyond that, you need to tell more. The copy/paste issue is not caused by the HDD. It's likely a cracked app or OS issue. Tell all so folk can help.
Hello, I have some weird slow down and freeze, sometimes I can hear a "Beep" and some kind of drive speed up suddenly (and most of the times followed by a computer freeze of couple of seconds), and sometimes its just speed up (for no reason).
Recently I formatted my hard drive and installed windows 10, and I feel like some file just basically disappear, some feature doesn't work
- can't paste text (using kb shortcut or mouse submenu
- can't seem to install some program (windows installer bug)
- some dll file just either not works anymore or disappear
Some is my hard drive (or anything else) broken? My hunch is that my primary hard drive is dying (quite old, almost 10 years old)
and maybe mix with so kind of viruses that breaks dll?
