You need to carefully follow the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 since you apparently think this is XP and not Win7. Win7 is a driver-complete OS which provides all of the drivers via the installer and then when you get online via Windows Update.

The steps for drivers are printed in red in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 so you can't miss them. I would start over and follow that tutorial which has helped over a million consumers get a perfect install.

Be sure to delete all partitions during the booted install to get it cleanest.

Apparently your files are gone so you can skip the first steps which would have reminded you of everything not to forget to backup.

Okay I did a clean install of windows again and installed only the ethernet driver to get internet access. Windows update is doing the rest of the work now so we'll see where it goes from here

That you say you did this in 23 minutes makes me wonder what steps were skipped. Did you in fact delete all partitions to get it cleanest?

Please read over the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 and then if necessary redo the install, since this would take more than 23 minutes.

I had the windows 7 clean install already done hours ago. I was just waiting for someone to reply so that I could know what to do with the drivers after it had failed the first time

Alright well this didnt work again. after windows update it would just launch into system repair again because it couldn't boot. I'm currently running diagnostics test to see, theres an 'X' on hard drive 0

Use the maker's bootable HD Diagnostic CD scan, followed by a full Disk Check from the install disk Command Line in System Recovery Options.

Create a full disk partition from the installer Command Line using step 6 in Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums for the Disk check

Do i have to get a clean install of windows again and then do all that before installing any drivers?

Yes, I showed in Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures above how to create a full disk partition to run Disk Check after the HD Diagnostic CD scan, which will wipe the hard drive and create a full disk Active partition which after Disk Check can be used to reinstall, or you can delete it and create partitions as you wish during install. Wiping the hard drive will also be therapeutic since it overcomes most installation failures by removing old boot code that remains unless wiped.

I'd opt for the regular chk dsk to save time and either rule in or out the drive as being the problem. If it finds errors it can't fix, the drive needs to be replaced... if it doesn't find any errors, the drive isn't the problem. JMO.
If an HDD is suffering from bad sectors it is not long for this world.

My Check Disk experience is different from yours.
I've found regular Check Disk to be mostly useless.

One of my 2 TB HDDs became dodgy this time last year, so I copied as much data as I could off of it.
I found that regular Check Disk said nothing useful about my dodgy HDD.
I don't even think it reported any bad sectors and it reported that the file system was OK (which it wasn't).

So I ran Check Disk with the repair option selected.
It found a bunch of bad sectors, attempted repairs and afterwards I was able to copy extra data off of the HDD.

It took a lot of time though.
