the hardrive failed the quick test but passed the full test. the quick test had an -03 smart read error. the full test had no issues

Find a Win7 retail installation DVD for your version to clean reinstall with Product Key on COA sticker, which is a much superior install anyway. Details in my signature link below.

chkdsk only repairs Software file problems, not hardware problems.
