    Around 4am of December 27th my laptop that is connected to our internet provider via wifi, disconnected completely--I spent 2 hours troubleshooting before going to this website: https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001575.htm

    Prior to following their steps I had already unplugged, turned off, taken out the battery, system restore, and shut down the laptop for lengthy periods of time in the hopes this would prompt a reaction. I checked the drivers in my device manager with nothing showing up corrupted. When I had tried to look up my internet information in the laptop nothing was there as if id never been connected. So when I followed all these steps on the link the Bios reset was the last resort. I followed everything to the letter and upon restart I got a flash of blue screen of death before loading the bios system repair page. I am unable to get further then the Bios reset as the laptop just restarts and shuts off after going through available steps.

    My friend had tried to help me with my wifi connection problems by having me download and install Malwarbytes and this program: https://www.drivereasy.com/ due to the fact the two computers I've had were used and came with Wi-Fi problems that would progressively get worse.

    I had wondered if it had to do with the wiring in my apartment being bad and if I needed to use an Ethernet cable which my friend was mailing me.

    Then my friend told me yesterday to take the hard drives out of my laptops and swap them, which after half a day in grueling over the task I took the laptops apart only to find the hard drives are not compatible and I don't know if I can put them back together properly.

    He had bought me this used laptop cheap and I figured itd come with issues but not all this, is there anything I can do? If I took the laptop to a shop will they put it together and fix it or am I better off getting a new laptop?

    No one has any suggestions, guides, comments at all? I mean I could try to put my laptops back together, but some of the screws I noticed were stripped so I was hesitant in trying.

    I would advise you to take this to service center and see if they can put back together and get it running.

    Have you tried disconnecting your wifi modem for at least 30 seconds and reconnect it back.
    Do you have an extra hdd so you can reprogram your computer to see if it may work. You might be needing some of the drivers for your computer. If you succeed then you might have had a corrupted drive. If not then you can swap the hdd you had before.
