Boots to startup repair only

Hello,

recently I have bought new laptop Asus X52JC with i3 CPU , 3GB RAM, GeForce 310m etc. I installed Win7 Home Premium 32bits.
After a week computer began to hang up at windows 7 startup: "Please wait... message", no windows logo, full hdd activity and it stays here forever. I tried to launch windows repair, safe mode it just hangs with full hdd activity.
Only one thing worked: startup repair. It repairs computer about 2 hours and then it boots normaly. If i shut it down or restart, it works also. But next day, story begins all over again....
So, I reformated hard drive, reinstaled windows, all newest drivers from asus website and office with skype. Everything worked fine until the next day Problem is identical. The only one thing that is working for me now is startup repair. It repairs computer and works for one day
