Your laptop is 4 years old?? I’m a computer guy, and I can tell you that’s a laptop’s middle age - in human years its in its 40s thereabouts. Parts start to fail about then, and it starts showing its age, just like people. Some get cancer and die young, others live to a ripe old age without any drama. It’s all just luck of the draw... take it to a laptop doctor - they might be able to operate.

Are you the electronic grim reaper?

Being serious now. For your iPhone I would take it to your local Apple store or at&t store and see what they say.
I’m not sure what to do about your laptop, it could be a virus but you may want to take it to the geek squad at Best Buy or a local computer shop that you trust. The geek squad people I’ve dealt with are good but there a bit expensive

most laptops are cheaply made pieces of shit these days.I hope you registered that lifetime warranty.You say its completely bricked, are you sure the SSD or HDD didnt just die ? have you tried swapping the drive ? thats a really common problem with laptops.

Ironically, you’re an IT major!

Have you started wearing spandex underwear under wool pants? You could be a static electricity generator and a destroyer of all things electronic.

Hey, op here. The phone problem was a glitch where it couldn’t begin to charge if the screen was off, which apple has since fixed. I just had to learn how to force-restart the new iPhones and got it to work that day. The laptop was made with great high-quality parts except for the ADATA drives. They were like the shittiest ones available. So when one of them failed in the RAID-ed state they were in, it took everything out. And since they were encrypted they were basically completely unrecoverable. Was hit with a perfect storm. But it’s all fixed now. Remaining drives were reformatted (non-RAID) and it now on a backup schedule since I know these shitty drives will fail again. Lol

Adata isn't exactly a shit brand. Budget, yes, but not shit.

Raid is fine provided you do it properly so there is redundancy. Sounds like you had it in raid 0, which is not something I would ever recommend except for a data drive which is being backed up.

Sounds like an easy enough fix for a competent it tech; and the data is probably in tact provided the entire partition table didn't get corrupted and it is just the boot rec.

But to be safe, Get a new drive, reinstall Windows and use a usb dock to get your files back.
