About a week ago, my laptop kept experiencing chronic freezing (usually around startup). Nothing would shut it down except taking the battery out, even holding down the power button. So after about the third try, even removing the battery from my laptop wouldn't shut it down. After it eventually did, Windows will not boot, so I went to my other computer and made a recovery disk. After trying it and trying to start Startup Repair, it simply goes to System Recovery Options, where it then tells me to select a language and a keyboard input method. I click OK, since I'm from the USA, and it simply does not load. No screen even pops up. What should I do now? Would my friend's hard drive cleaner work to fix this?
I'm using an HP ProBook 4525s, if that information helps.
