Laptop factory reset stuck on "Resetting this PC 99%"

Posted 20th Jan 2021
My laptop is now pretty old (~8years) and probably wasn't any great shakes when I purchased it 8years ago.

It was getting so slow so I decided to do a factory reset - I will need to buy a new one at some point but if I can get another year out of it I'll be happy.

Everything went fine until it went to Resetting this PC 99%. It's not sat at this for 24hours. It's not completely frozen as the wee circle is still spinning. The Hard Drive light is on/very slight flickering and I can still hear wee noises inside the laptop.

Any ideas on what I'm best to do?

Thank you!
