Try this. It guides you through a process that should eliminate general issues as the ones you are describing, okay?
Do you know how to do a Windows System Scan? You know, click on and open your 'Computer Icon' in safe mode, then right click the OS (C) Icon and drop down to and click Properties, click and open up the Tools tab and click Error Checking/Check Now, then check both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, click Start. After a few seconds the computer will state that it will do this at the next restart, click Yes and then close and exit everything by clicking OK and restart your laptop and let it do the entire Windows System Scan. This vital Windows System Scan can easily take upwards of two hours and cannot- repeat- cannot be interfered with or stopped whatsoever for any reasons, okay? Once the scan is done, your laptop will restart itself.
