I think your hdd probably needs to be replaced (like PC) as if its 7 years old and still on original drive and has been getting laggy, I think hdd is dying. Its had a good life, they don't last forver.

Sorry for your pain. If you can boot from DVD or USB drive you could try Boot Repair Disk. I have used it on various occasions to get me out of trouble. I can't guarantee it will fix your problem though unfortunately.

That may fix your booting issue, but not really sure what may have caused it. Maybe back up your disk drive, to preserve any files and data, then wipe and re-install the operating system. Then you could copy your files and data back from the backup drive if needed.

Of course that all takes time, only you can decide how necessary your files and data are. Are you running some version of MS Windows?

Red Screens of Death often mean its a Graphics card error.

I can't read the error code, the reflection is in the exactly wrong spot, what does it say after stop code?

what make/model laptop?
Does windows work?

On another PC, download the Windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a win 10 installer on USB << handy boot drive if nothing else

Well, hdd can be overwritten right?

Windows errors often don't use the best language. Some are difficult to understand, like the GPT error you get during windows setup if your PC has MBR is written by aliens.

its not fake, rsod do exist that look like that. You just can't find many of them on Google
