So my laptop is good, runs games smoothly, but the problem is that about a week ago, it suddenly started to fail: It takes about 20 minutes to start, it randonly freezes, it takes about 10 minutes to open a single empty notepad, 20 minutes to open a program and I cannot open any browser, it just doesnt do anything, I tried all browsers. When I make a single thing like moving my mouse it freezes, windows installer is corrupted, so basically I cannot download any .msi file, just .exe (like 70% of all games, programs or installers are .msi) and windows explorer is corrupted too (I cannot open it)

So basically my laptop is not working, I called a speciallist and he said it has something to do with windows 8 (I do not remember exactly) and that my hard drive is * up.

Should I buy a new hard disk or a new laptop even if it means I lose everything?

Thanks and sorry for the bad english

Did this specialist run a check on the drive?

Also you did not post what brand and model the laptop is and if you will need to pay someone to do the work of installing the new drive and Windows or if you are going to do it yourself.
