Brand new laptop, Lenovo Legion y530
Specs: i7 8th gen, 16gb ram, GTX105ti, 1TB HDD & 16Gb optane memory

I accidentally installed malware and I had to reset my laptop. But the reset was stuck on 58% for about an hour. So I had to force shutdown it, after turning it on, it installed windows and booted up as if everything was okay.
During installation of basic apps programs my laptop felt very laggy. It sometimes take very long to restart or shutdown. Apps take very long to open. What do I do? I am assuming the HDD or optane memory is damaged, and I have spare 256GB M.2 SSD which I am not sure if I should replace it. Or should I reset the laptop again? (wonder if it still going to freeze during reset). I am not huge tech savvy, so please help. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Welcome to TSF.

You shouldn't have interrupted the factory reset. It can take hours to finish and you should give it the time it needs, and even after it's finished, it needs more time to check for Windows updates and install them. Start the recovery/reset and let it be, hopefully you didn't damage the recovery partition or its contents, but if you did and the restore fails, you can download Windows 10 from Microsoft and clean install it.

Everyone has my IP assigned to them
Greetings! I have a problem that I can't seem to resolve and identify. Currently I have 2 (game) servers. I forwarded the required ports in the router and opened them in my firewalls. Whenever someone joins any of the servers, he is assigned the same global IP as mine. I am granted an IP via DHCP...

[SOLVED] After pressing some key combo, I boot into emergency mode
I use Fedora 20. After pressing ctrl-alt-some function key, I entered emergency mode. Now every time I boot my computer, I enter emergency mode before I enter the normal OS. When I enter the normal OS there are no problems. How do I disable the auto-boot into emergency mode?
