Sounds like you might want to boot to the BIOS and make sure everything looks normal. If the hard drive is acting normally, you could try using your Windows 7 disc to repair the OS.

Windows 7

My computer is doing the same takes forever to boot up and it gets stuck on a black screen. When I try to boot up in safe mode, it said there was a critical error and my computer must shut down to protect it. Earlier today it said there is a problem running "C:\windows\system32\werconcpl.dll

First try booting into Safe Mode with Networking to install, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes. Then once cleaned run SFC -SCANNOW Command and work through these troubleshooting steps.

If Safe Mode is not working, download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Once the System is clean if it won't start boot into System Recovery Options via the F8 menu or disk as shown in tutorial, run Startup Repair repeatedly no matter what it reports. Post back results.

If this fails, try System Restore from Recovery Options list, then if that fails open a Command Line to run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

As a last resort boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to Explore C to see if your files are intact, make sure C or the 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is marked Active, then click on HD to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, Apply. If Windows 7 doesn't start and you restored Active flag, run Startup Repair 3 Separate Times.

If these all fail you can copy out your data using your Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or Paragon Rescue CD.
System Repair Disc - Create

Then run Factory Recovery from its partition or disks you made or order from Tech Support, or find a Windows 7 installation DVD to clean reinstall using Product Key on COA sticker: Clean Reinstalling Windows 7
