Windows 7: Windows 7 Start Up Repair Say's "System Volume Is Corrupt"

Windows 7 Start Up Repair Say's "System Volume Is Corrupt"

I recently bought and installed Windows 7 Home Premium OEM onto my HP G42 (which is now 2.5 years old). I had Win 7 home Premium on it when I bought it, but the hard drive broke and I ended up getting a new drive (Seagate Momentus 7200 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 16 MB Cache). I installed it onto there, and it seemed to be working fine for a few start ups. Then when I tried doing an update, I got blue screened the when rebooting, and it wouldn't let me back in.

From there, I decided to completely re-install Win 7 (I really had nothing of value on there), and that worked longer. It still had trouble doing an update, but after trying it again, it worked fine. It was a few days ago that it began giving me blue screens telling me a "critical system process has stopped working or terminated". Now, when I try booting to it, it will get to the start up screen with the animation, then it'll reboot after a minute and tell me it had trouble booting.

I ran start up repair, and it told me that the root cause was that the system volume was corrupt. I'm not really sure of what I can do now. Is there any way to fix this problem or to prevent it from happening in the future?

Side note: I don't know if any of you are proficient in the Ubuntu system (I dual-boot with ubuntu 13.04), but I tried accessing the Win 7 partition from there and it gave me this message (see attachment):

Okay, so I ran
Code:
chkdsk
via the repair disk, and it gave me this. Also, it said my system was in D:, which is odd because it should be in C:

Try pointing it at the system volume. That will likely be C from the booted repair disc.

chkdsk c: /r

Looks like you ran it against the system volume this time. 102399kb total disk space. Compare that with your first screenshot, which was 3086kb.

It appears to be ok.

Seems it is the windows partition which needs checking.

Try chkdsk d: /r

Okay, so I ran
Code:
chkdsk d: /r
a few hours later, it finished. Here's the results from that.

I rebooted, and it started successfully. I was able to get in, and nothing seemed wrong. Then, I got a blue screen that told me a "crucial system process had been terminated or stopped working". It rebooted, and came to this.

I rebooted after that, but it wouldn't start then. So, I ran Startup Repair, and it gave me this.

So, I rebooted, and it came back up successfully. I've been noticing that over the many times this has happened to me, Windows Aero has been effected by this. It keeps turning off. It will just give me the sky blue solid bar at the bottom of my screen. It's after I change it though that eventually something goes wrong. Could this be part of the problem? A problem with Aero?

*Sidenote: I know the pictures are upside down. I tried editing them, then I re-uploaded them. They still won't change.*

Looks like SMART has been tripped on that hard drive. I would run a hard drive diagnostics. What your describing is similar to a pending hard drive failure.

"similar to a pending hard drive failure." NOT AGAIN!!!!! (My first hard disk failed and had to be replaced).

Seagate had a program for this. Downloaded, booted to it, and it told me everything was fine. It didn't find anything wrong with it.

What gives with the upside down stuff?

Did you try seatools for dos bootable disc?

Wouldn't surprise me if it passed. I had a similar issue recently. At least Seagate are pretty quick sending out a new drive.

If F2 gives you some kind of HP disk diag thing, you may as well try it.

I would suggest that you return the Seagate Momentus drive to the vendor and get a replacement. Being what it is, part solid state memory, I would think there is something finicky in the drive you got.
