    For the last 10 days, my laptop has been randomly freezing and becomes completely unusable. I have to force shut down it and after starting it up again, it again freezes after a certain time. The interval is random though. The problem first started with my laptop's keyboard and touchpad becoming completely inoperable for some reason. I researched online and found a solution that I needed to update my BIOS. And so I did and the keyboard and touchpad started working again. But after a day, the laptop started freezing completely and no peripherals worked at all with the laptop, it became completely inoperable. Initially before the BIOS update, I was able to use external peripherals like a USB mouse but this time, everything was frozen. Before the BIOS update, when the keyboard and mousepad weren't working, they remained inoperable after restarts too but after the BIOS update, the computer regained its functionality after the restart but soon started freezing again.Minecraft Pocket Edition Counter-Strike Google Play Services

    I installed Windows 10 from scratch in hopes to stop the freezing but even that didn't help.

    I further researched online regarding my current problem and saw a probable solution of disabling the Intel Managemnet Engine Interface in Device Manager. But that also didn't do the trick. I decided to run the full extensive test in the System Diagnostics and it showed an error.

    Hard drive is failing and about to fail. Need to replace it. Copy over anything on it. Best bet is to clone it using HDD cloning software or even the one built into Windows.
