I tired nearly every possible ways for this solution like booting windows 10 again through USB,resetting, removing dual boot etc. Note: My PC shows "Harddisk Problem Detected" also so I doubt this might be the culprit. If yes, how do I fix this(Without changing the harddisk)?.

    If your PC says it has a disk problem, you have to replace the disk. There's no way around that. – Moshe Katz Sep 14 '16 at 18:36
  • I'm afraid I have to do exactly that :( . – Pramesh Bajracharya Sep 15 '16 at 10:55
  • And now I did replace the drive. It works well now. – Pramesh Bajracharya Feb 26 '17 at 8:03

Test if it's the hard disk by installing an OS (e.g. Ubuntu) on a USB flash drive and running (not just booting) from it.

  1. If the PC runs from the flash drive without BSOD, you know it's not a hardware issue.

  2. Mount the HDD in the PC. Check its SMART status. Since SMART status is just an indicator, you can perform more thorough testing with Smartmontools.

Note that if there is an issue with the HDD, the faster you can install another and salvage data, the better. Disk drives often go from "a bit flaky" to completely unmountable in a short time.

  • Tried dual booting with UBUNTU 16.04 and this poped out "System Problem Detected". Well , this just happened once. So what do you think it is ? @DrMoishe Pippik – Pramesh Bajracharya Sep 15 '16 at 11:00
  • Dual-booting is still using your HDD. Try booting and running from USB. – DrMoishe Pippik Sep 15 '16 at 15:48
  • Ohh sorry ! I forgot to mention that. Live booting any OS (I tried 3 : Kali linux,Fedora and Ubuntu 14.04) gave no such errors. This means I have to replace my HDD right? @DrMoishe Pippik – Pramesh Bajracharya Sep 15 '16 at 15:51
  • Use the Linux SMART checker and Smartmontools to evaluate the HDD -- it might be a few bad sectors or end-of-life. Do not run from the HDD, use the tools on the flash drive to evaluate the HDD. – DrMoishe Pippik Sep 15 '16 at 17:28
  • Ok will try ... but as of now ... my laptop seems to work well .... thanks ✌ – Pramesh Bajracharya Sep 17 '16 at 10:59
