Startup Repair: bad hard disk: Bugcheck 7a

Hi.

So, yesterday, I turned my computer off so it could update. It turned off correctly.

The next morning, I turn on my computer, and windows starts, and then configures it's updates. After this windows restarts my computer. When the computer restarted, Windows couldn't start. I tried multiple times, but got nowhere. System restare didn't work, I got errors when trying to restore. (I have tried 2 different restore points.)

Startup repair, after a few tries, finally gave me an error. It said:

Root cause found:
-------------------------
Bad hard disk: Bugcheck 7a. Parameters = 0xfffff8a001342c00, 0xffffffffc000009c, 0xdda0b8c0, 0xfffff900c0780000.
-------------------------

Every other test ran without errors.

This was somehow caused by windows update, because my comp has worked perfectly until windows installed these updates.

How can I fix this problem I'm having?

Thanks,
- Pilot

Please explain why you turn off the computer to update...

I suggest you run Check Disk.
