If you have an activation code then use that tutorial I posted to get another ISO of 7 see pic.
I just wanted to add that I ran chkdsk and my computer stopped freezing-- for a while. Now, my computer will not start up. It keeps going into start up repair.

Ok mate now if you can get it to run for a while after a chkdsk - did you run th switches /f and - or /r ?? If you can get into safe mode if you have some malware scans installed already the run them and we recommend these

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

ADW download frombleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

I am also looking along the lines of the hard drive being bad so a test with this would not go amiss if you can keep it running long enough.
SeaTools for Windows | Seagate pick the right bit version.

But in all honesty I think you may be up or a new drive and another install

My laptop has stopped running. Whenever I try to enter safe mode or normally, I get the blue screen.
The error is STOP c0000145 and the error code is 0xc0000006.

In addition test your hardware starting with the hard drive, then continue through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which should turn up the problem.

Actually Greg I am wondering if the drive is shot?? or even the BIOS or would that have no effect on getting a boot?

As Greg says mate and one of them I already suggested to you.
One I don't think is there is this

HARD DRIVE SURFACE TEST

Now as opposed to the usual drive testersthis specifically tests the surface of (usually) a spinner.

It will test the surface of the spinningdisk, and I suspect some idea of the performance of the read / write heads function / capabilities.

Download this http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html my pic will give you the instruction on what to do. It doestake some time but it does cover most possibilities with a drive in conjunctionwith the other testers like Seatools http://www.seagate.com/au/en/support/downloads/item/seatools-win-master/

I want to try it, but my computer doesn't even boot up. As of now, I'm trying to revert back to windows 8 but the clean install doesn't work. After I enter the generic product key, it works. But after installing, I get an error.
Every OS I have tried to install does not work.

Personally I would wipe or clean all that drive and format it before trying to install anything I don't know what Greg thinks but I would suspect it is clogged with bits and pieces or the drive is shot.

Have you access to another computer to see what is on that drive if not you could try this.

BOOTABLE UBUNTU

Make a bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download

Set the BIOS to boot from theoptical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL> select TRYnot INSTALL

When it is finished - it takes verylittle time you will get a screen like in the pic .

Open the drive you want > Userand dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy /paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doingthis.

I am not sure if it will but I haverecovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or justplain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.
You have access to the net and may even be able to run tests on it via that venue - I don't know as I have never actually had to try that.
There is also a bootable Partition Wizard too Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to manage partition directly with partition manager bootable CD. that may helpful too.
