About a week after the warning sign, the computer started to consistantly freeze and switch back and forth between black or grey empty screen and desktop screen. So, I formatted the hard drive and clean installed Windows 10 again.
But after working for a week or so, it displayed the same symptom. I reinstalled Windows again today, but when the Windows entered the desktop screen upon finishing the installation, the same thing happened. After I forcefully shutting down the power button and turnung on the laptop again, it is now stuck at that blue screen of "Just a monent..." with circling wheel.
Although I'm pretty sure it might have something to do with the failing hard drive warning, I want to make sure I have no other options beside throwing out my laptop. (Especially since it was just 1.5 years old and I am having financial difficulty now.)
Do you guys thinkg something beside the failing hars drive can be the cause of this problem?
P.S. Sorry for abrupt ending in the original posting. I accidently pressed submit button while typing the post.
Hello, I've been uaing my Acer Aspire E 15 laptop for 1.5 years now. I have upgraded its pre-built Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 few months ago.
Few weeks ago, the Windows started to display HDD failing warning message. I know I was screwed, but I didn't have money to buy new laptop (and still don't), so I decided to keep using it.
