    Oh I see , very strange to have a 1GB partition at the start of a drive , you need to Repartition the whole Drive , not reformat it though, then reinstall win10 , easiest way is to delete all partitions during Win10 Setup phase don't pick anywhere when it asks just delete all the partitions and then Setup should just do it's thing ,making partitions and formatting as needed.

    this is win7 but it should look the same
    How to delete all the partition of hard drive while installing the windows 7 - Quora

    Or if you have a Minitool Partition Wizard Boot disk/USB use that 1st to wipe the drive and then reboot and install Win10 off another USB.

    I just started the PC and it started working fine. First boot took about 2 hours, stuck at the login screen, after that it is working just fine.

    Then in two days it just crashed, and it is back to the same. While I had it, I ran all the tests from seatools and there wasn't any errors. Will it be problem with any other component like motherboard etc.?

    The PC crashed to a Blue Screen, which was also stuck at 100% and then these grains started coming on screen.

    Could be depending on the age of the laptop , or if you have drop it etc ...

    Could be it downloaded a Win10 Update in the background again , that isn't compatible with your system for some reason.

    So you can't boot it again ?

    maybe the HDD or SATA conrtoler. has an intermittent controller error or something or no ? .....Would be cool to see winevent but that ain't likely

    Some updates were installed. And windows booted even after that.

    But now I am in square one.

    Did you search the error message above in google ? I can not read what it says in the photo sorry , its too small

    can you run the seagate program off a boot disk and check the HDD or it won't run at all?

    I showed the lap to a friend who runs a computer shop. He immediately told the CD drive cable( Flat cable that runs from drive to Mother Board is loose.

    He replaced it and for a week there is no problem. But the hard disk is running very slow even after this.
