    A while ago i posted about how my computer wouldn't load or do anything and believed it was a hard drive issue. Looking into it, it it in a way. I believe through some error in the hard drive it says my system 32 files are either corrupted or deleted so I can't access my computer because it constantly fails to automatically repair it. I will not buy a new hard drive because I already ordered a new and better computer but does anyone know a possible solution. I wondered if reinstalling windows from a usb would help?

    The first thing I'd try is to boot the computer from a bootable Windows Installation USB and see if it can repair the damage to the Windows System files.

    Yes, follow Microsoft's instructions for your version of Windows to create the bootable USB flash drive. Boot your computer from that USB flash drive and then follow the onscreen instructions to attempt a repair.
