Windows 7: Error Code 0x0000007B (0x0000034, 0x000000, etc)

64 bit windows 7 prem
Error Code 0x0000007B (0x0000034, 0x000000, etc)

To start my laptop started out making weird glitchy noises whenever i was doing something on it and it started to get a little hot.
Then I would leave for a min and get a system memory dump / bluescreen. Then after wards it wouldn't load windows and just bluescreen after windows logo and restart. I let it do that for awhile and turned it off for a day then turned it back on. WAHLA it worked!
This same cycle repeated a few times.
Now ive come to the problem where it has happened again and that solution isn't working. I can't run system repair because when it asks me to load an OS or drivers my OS doesn't show up in the list (windows 7). I cant run windows XP recovery disk to use chkdsk because it will just give me the same blue screen. Also the BIOS will only SOMETIMES recognize my HDD. Only when i change the loading drivers from ACHI to IDE or the reverse.
Also when i try to run chkdsk in command console I get " cannot get direct access to volumes" error code.
I also cannot boot into safe mode.

From what I have gathered so far I may have a boot virus, or a bunk HDD.

I don't give 2 shits about what is on my HDD so any recomendations will help on trying to just get the comp up and running again.
I only a Windows XP home eddition disk and a Hal's All in One tools disk.

Please help me.

Hello thepershy.

A 0x0000007B BSOD means inaccessible Boot Device; the system reserved (100 MB hidden) partition is inaccessible.

Generally it is either a bootkit/rootkit infection, or the physical HDD related issue. In a few cases, the boot sequence/parameters may also cause his issue.

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following program.
Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
  • Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

Boot into Partition Wizards GUI following this instructions. When you are on the last screen, take a camera snap of the screen and upload the snap here.
