To fix this issue run a Check disk on the computer.

Instructions to do Check Disk

Please press the Windows key and R key on your keyboard together.
Now you will get a Run window. In that run window please type CMD and press on Ok.

Now you will get a new black window. Inside that back Windows type

chkdsk /r and hit one enter key. It will prompt do you want to do it after a restart. Press on Y and hot on enter once again. Now restart the computer. It will take 1-2 hour to complete the check disk on the computer. After completing the check disk try to boot the computer in Safe Mode. It will be working fine.
