A. The media creation tool is the most reliable IMO.
B. Okay
C. Worth a try.
Clearing the CMOS could help.

Good luck. :)

Hi! Another update, those methods really didn't work. Also I discovered something, i think all parts were doing well including the cpu, but this part (shown in the image below) heats up really fast in the startup. Can you tell me what is this part and why does it heat up too fast? I think this is the root of the problem. I'm still in the bios yet it is hot when i felt it while i opened it. Btw in the picture i removed the wlan card and cmos battery from their spot

Does it get too hot to touch ? Can you make out what it says on it ? I can't quite tell.

Whatever it is it's a major component and if it's overheating and causing the crashing there's nothing you can do. It might be repairable by a good computer technician but it needs specialised equipment and the cost for labour could be too high even if you can find one.

If you can find a working motherboard on Ebay you could try swapping it in.

I have searched it and it turns out to be a chipset, it is heating too much, the chipset in my laptop has no cooler or heatsink. What should I do?

Mobile Intel HM76 Express

Again, does it get too hot to touch ?

You could try putting a heatsink on it, you would have to find a heatsink that would fit and there is heatsink glue that will attach it, you should find both on Ebay. However I suspect it would not help if that chip is faulty.

Yes, it gets too hot to touch.

I had a quick look on Ebay (UK & US) and there were no motherboards and very few spare parts for your laptop model.

Sadly I think you will have to get another laptop.

If you need to keep any files on your present laptop's hard drive they can be copied using a USB to SATA adapter cable or caddie.

Hi I have an update, after a year of trying to make it work, it just worked after I dissassembled and reassembled the laptop. As of what I've seen now, the temps only goes 80+ when i opened 12 tabs of edge. The common temp now is 50-70. I think something just worn off, and i think it's the nibs in the wifi adapter. When i removed it, the nibs were quite loose. But still I would replace the fan, because the other blades inside the fan are gone. Thank you very much for your help!

That's great, well done. :)

You should find a suitable fan on Ebay. Those wifi connector things can be tricky, you can usually tell when they are on properly, they snap into place.

If you don't fit another wireless card cover those 'nibs' on the end of those wireless antenna leads with tape and tuck them away where they can't touch anything on the motherboard.

If it was me I don't think I'd bother replacing the fan if it's working ok now, up to you of course.

I don't know, the guide in my post #6 covers the S855, S855D, S850 and S850D models so I think the fans for those will all be the same.
Not sure about a C850 fan though, do you have a link to it ?
