When turning on, the screen will display the windows startup animation and once finished a blank screen. After about 30 seconds to a minute a black screen pops up and asks if i would like to start up normally or run startup recovery. The Normal start up fails and ends up returning to the first black screen. When i run startup repair it says it cannot find a solution. I sent error message and the log said:
All tests performed were successful.
Root cause found: boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully.
Root cause found: bad hard disk: Bugcheck 7a. Parameters = 0xfffff8a000efeb80, 0xffffffffc0000185, 0x1753e08c0, 0xfffff900c0770000.
Each session reported a single root cause which ended up being one of those two.
After that i went under additional options and signed into system recovery using one of the users and selected startup repair again and went under problem details:

I tried looking up aolutions online but couldnnt find one that was identicle.
I then tried diskcheck using command prompt, under C: /F and /R.
Sometimes the processes would complete with no errors or solutions and sometimes the processes would get stuck on a certain file and would not move even after 10 to 20 mins alone. Although when the processes do complete at the bottom they would say something along the lines of "log could not be saved : status 50" or something.
The computer runs Windows 7 64-bit and is an Asus A35S series.
Time is of the essense as i need this laptop for school. Thankyou.
