A couple months after I got my computer, it began to become very slow. Being an impatient person, I hard rebooted a couple times. Eventually it went into The black screen where it says "checking disk for consistency". Being an impatient person,y dad and I chose to just re install my whole computer. And then it was fine.
Until a month later when it began having the same issues. This time, I hard rebooted a couple times until it went into "Checling disk" again. After googling, I let it run through and it took a couple of hours but it worked. And them it was fine, until a week later t became extremely slow, shut down, and went into Startup Repair. It began fixing hard drive errors and took several hours to complete, but it did. And it was fine
A week later my computer again has begun freezing up. When I start it up in the mornings, it takes a long time on "Starting Windows" and then goes to a black screen with a cursor. Then waits for a long time before going into he login screen, I login and it takes a long time to begin to function. Then it starts to freeze up, I hard rebooted, and it happens again.
Oh, and whenever I get the rare moment my computer is functioning I run Norton full scans/ CCcleaner.

Rebooted computer, went into startup repair. Let it run and sent to starting windows and beeped around 8 times. Now it's stuck, and I'm sad
