Hey guys! My Samsung Win7 laptop used to be a very handy laptop for me. However one day, I was watching a YouTube video then paused it. then ate breakfast. When I came back, the whole laptop was frozen. I couldn't move the mouse or type anything. I had to result into forcing it to turn off after waiting for several minutes. When I booted it back up, I got a blue screen! So I went ahead and tried to recover my PC using Samsung's recovery tools, but those seem corrupt also. So I reinstalled Win7 through a USB stick and it worked. However, my PC is not in the top condition it used to be. My sound now often cracks. In times my CPU usage would be so high, that the PC is unusable unless restarted and sometimes I get a blue screen whenever a new driver or something gets installed. I can't even run my games in full speed anymore and loading to get into the games takes a while.
Keep in mind that the whole incident that started the whole mess was one or two years ago.
Now my question is, I know a fresh install would fix it; is there anyway that I can put all of the files that I want to back up on a separate partition on the same HDD or do I really have to transfer all of my stuff over to an external HDD?
Next, is there any way that we can actually just find the problem? I mean I can use my Win7 PC, but it's not in the top condition as it once was.
Thanks for stopping by.
