Windows 7: Laptop suddenly wont start!

Laptop suddenly wont start!

So today I went ahead and installed some windows updates, and while they were installing I went downstairs to eat dinner and came back to my computer not being able to start up at all.

windows 7 - Imgur

The computer starts up but flashes a blue screen and just restarts, I went ahead and turned the auto restart off and the blue screen in the above link is what I'm getting. I've also tried to do a startup repair, but just hangs on that black screen, I've waited about an hour several times..
I've also tried to reinstall windows via bootable flash drive, but it also hangs on the setup is starting window, I've also tried that several times for several hours. I've also tried to repair it via bootable flash, but it does the same thing as the normal startup repair and hangs on that black screen. Will not let me into safe mode either.
clarification: I have both windows repair on a USB, and windows 7 installation on another USB, neither work on the laptop, but both work on my desktop.
Does anyone have any idea of what to do?
I have no touched the bios at all, I'm telling the truth about installing some windows updates, and came back about 30 minutes later to my computer acting like this.

That is a significant error. You need to use the Dos version of SeaTools to perform both a short & long generic test on the disk.

So I read into it and it said that it could only fix the problems it finds if I have a seagate harddrive, I'm honestly not sure what kind of hard drive I have, and I dont think I can even find out in my laptops state without mcguivering my laptop apart

The first step is to run the tests to determine if there are faults and how serious they are.

No, just do both the short and long tests.

I have a feeling this is real bad, stuck at 47% for about 5 minutes, and up to 80 errors and counting
