Laptop is extremely slow and sometime it shows "No Bootable Device Found" at boot.
Hello there, I'm using a lenovo ideapad 310. My laptop has recently got this weird problem, it is excessively lagging, the disk usage is always at 95-99% and sometimes the OS just crashes on it's own and shows "No Bootable Device Found". I've tried resetting the BIOS but it shows "Hard Drive Undetectable". However, after a few reboot it automatically detects the hard disk again. I've reinstalled the OS several times, didn't work. Also Formatted the whole hard disk, still did not work. Does this mean that my hard disk got damaged? If yes, will performing a low level format or writing zeros help? Thank you.

Thank you so much for replying. I've still got 6 months of warranty left, so maybe I should send it to the manufacturer. But I'd love to check for the hard drive errors first, please do suggest a bootable diagnostic software.
