Some hardware tests to run.

Hard drive(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.
7 Free Hard Drive Testing Software Tools


RAM (memory):
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
This may help, run the steps outlined in this tutorial, Option Two, and reboot the system:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If that doesn't correct the issue, run it two or more times with a reboot between.
You may get this result:
Code:
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired
them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot.
Or a message that no integrity violations were found.
Or that Windows Resource Protection found errors it cannot repair, if so rerun the steps above.

All I get with the sfc is there is a system repair pendin which requires a reboot to complete, restart windows and run it again how do I restart windows if all I get is a black screen before login?

Test your HD using Maker's HD Diagnostics extended CD scan Britton provided, followed by Disk Check from installer Command Line.

I would also want to make sure I had followed the Best Practices for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 after wiping the HD using Diskpart Clean Command also from installer's Command Line.

I would also boot into HP Boot menu by tapping ESC key at boot to see if there are onboard HD diagnostics for your model.

OK so here is what I did, I booted into safe mode and uninstalled my video drivers which I think caused the issue now I'm in the process of running win update I keep you updated on what's going on

OK, the pending repair may have something to do with the issues. Try the other suggestions though.
