i have an Aspire v 17 Nitro Running windows 10. Never had any issues until today, when I noticed my C: drive was full. The
drive was completely empty, so I wanted to move the folders that took up the most space Program Files and Program Files (x86). So I copied them to the
drive and waited for it to fully load so I could delete the folders in the C: drive.
Retroactively I know it was a dumbass move, because System Files are in those folders.
What happened was the copying process was finished and my laptop promptly crashed, only showing a light blue screen that told me a restart was necessary, it had a QR Code on the screen, but my laptop made a terrible sound, so I wasn’t able to react calmly, instead I pressed the power button for a forceful shutdown to make the noise stop.
After turning it back on it was stuck on the Acer logo for a long time. Then it showed me “no bootable device”. I opened up setup utility. HDD1 showed no serial number or model name. HDD1 did show both.
How do I fix this? Did I destroy my computer because of a dumb mistake?
