    i have an ASUS piece of garbage thats not even a year old - model X751N - that opened up today with a series of start-up errors. one was "Inaccessible Boot Device" and it tried repairing itself multiple times. then it opened up automatically in ASUS Bios Utility which i couldnt get out of. i looked online and found a way to get around it, but my overall question is, when im getting these errors and auto-repairing and bios utility...is this generally a sign that the laptop is a goner? i dont think i can trust this unit anymore. its running windows 10 if you need to know.

    thanks for reading.

    this laptop was a new replacement given to me by ASUS only 8 months ago to replace another laptop only 9 months old that had 3 repairs done to it and then a total failure. two laptops in 17 months...its now out of warranty. i doubt this is just an issue with a setting or something like that so i was wondering if everything i described above is a sure sign that this laptop too is on its way out with a hard drive or motherboard issue.

    With what info I have, the hard drive would be my first guess.

    To check, go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is listed. If not, more than likely it's dead.

    I read few of your words about ASUS and by the way, ASUS only fit in the MB not a full laptop or PC thing. That is a first. The second thing as all of these errors happen in two cases. First ,if the BIOS is not updated and Win 10 version screw things out as well for making errors show up that way. Second, and is more important the HDD or SSD of your laptop. I think that you should think of any laptops but skip HP .Hope the issue fixed.

    Asus may allow a 12 months warranty on the replacement laptop, I would check that with Asus.
