    I recently followed a page explaining how to speed up my computer which has slowed down a lot in the past year. After disabling Auto manage paging file size for all drivers and setting the custom size for both initial and maximum to the recommended number below the Total paging size for all drivers list. It told me to reset my laptop so I did and then I got a BSOD Error message saying CRITICAL_SERVICE_FAILED. I tried to refresh through the startup repair options. The laptop was stuck finalising file restore and then shut down. Since then Whenever I turn on the laptop it begins the preparing automatic repair screen then goes black. Nothing happens after this on screen. The Harddrive begins to make a stuttering grinding noise. The laptop is an Acer Aspire V3-551G running windows 10.

    Is there any way I can fix this or should I just start saving for a new laptop now?

    Sounds like it may be a failing hard drive. Is the hard drive listed in the CMOS/BIOS Setup?
