So, I own an old acer laptop with a 2nd gen i3 processor. the thing runs very slow but is still usable, the problem is that tobay when i went to start it it booted up to a certain point, then it got stuck on the loading screen i tryed to fix the issue in the recovery menu or whatever it's called. i tryed booting into safe mode, that didn't work so now it's stuck in a boot loop and everything i tryed to do to fix it didn't work. I'm thinking of buying a HDD dock so i can copy the pictures and other things i have on there then deleting everything on the HDD
and reinstalling windows. please help me i need the laptop to work asap bc i'm gonna need it to download more shit for an upcomming pc build, you know, drivers and shit. so if anyone got suggestions let me hear them.

Sounds like the HDD might be dying. If you can, try testing it in another system. Use CrystalDiskInfo to see how the drive's doing.

In any case, you should think about getting entry level SSD. Just reinstalling Windows on same drive will result about same speeds as it was when working.
