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