chkdsk /r would have been a better option, as you may have physical bad sectors on your hard-drive, have you considered purchasing a new hard-drive, or a complete Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

Sorry I could not have been of further assistance,

Scratching doesn't sound too good, and yes buying a new HDD would probably be the best option, if there are physical bad sectors on the hard-drive.

Try and backup any data onto a USB memory stick or a external hard-drive;

Backup User and System Files

Hope everything is okay for the future,

Harry
