Hey! my 1 year old msi gaming laptop suddenly crashed a couple of months ago. I tried a recovery disk with windows 10, but when i was going to choose a harddrive to install it on, it shoved me a hardrive with 0/0 mb free. i ont know if it is the hdd or the motherboard not responding to the hdd. so do you think you can help me?

Try connecting the hard drive to another PC and see what disk management shows?

Looks like HDD is corrupted

From your recovery drive can you get to a command prompt and run

chkdsk /f/r/

It says that i can not run disk checking on this wolume because it is write protected.

I don't think your going to recover the drive using a recovery USB/ DVD if its that bad.

Normal way to try and recover it is connect directly to a another PC or in a caddy to a laptop and see what diskmanagement shows but your probably looking at a new HDD.

If its a gaming laptop surpised its not fitted with a SSD?

I will try to get a new hdd as soon as I can. And the laptop is not the best
