I have a MacBook A1181, i bought it second hand back in 2020, at first it was working fine but after a while it suddenly won't boot, it's stuck at the apple logo progress bar, it won't let me boot into recovery mode, safe mode, and i tried resetting the NVRAM, tried all sorts of stuff to get it working but to no avail, is there any other way to get it to work?

I am able to boot into single user mode but i don't think it will be helpful

If Apple has a USB Media Creation Tool like Windows, I would suggest using that and reinstalling Mac OS from scratch.
