What I would do next is run the HD maker's diagnostic/repair extended CD scan. You may need to look on the HD now to see what the make is. HD Diagnostic
Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp

The combination of the HD scan and then another Disk Check run from the DVD Command line on all partitions can repair a HD to return to service. If you want to wait til later or not take the chance, swap in another HD now to see if it solves the problem.
I think ill wait untill the startup repair finishes and then reboot to see if it works then i shall have to do the hd diagnostic scan...I shall report asap

1st startup repair results = failed..Takes me back to error screen so i am going to do 2 more and hope for best and if no luck will do HD diagnostics test.

No the only HD i have is the one inside the laptop i dont have any other HD which is a shame cos if i did i could try it and check it jus to see if it is a problem with the HD and it would save me all this hassle lol

Then see what Startup Repair finds, run the HD diagnostics to see if it needs Repair.

2nd startup repair results = Startup repair is running a check disk. It done full scan then restarted my laptop then done nuva chkdsk and resarted at end and now doin a 3rd checkdisk. Im not sure if this is good but could never get dis far before so fingers crossed

If it is running chkdsk continuously then it may be irreparable. Are you initiating repeated chkdsk or is it asking for them?

No im not initiating them.Basicly i run startup repair from the W7 cd and then it went from there to check disk and has run repeatedly for bout 45 mins it completes then restarts my laptop and does it again and again etc

And you know it is running chkdsk because you get a prompt announcing this?

At some point if it looks like it is stuck in a loop I would bail out and run the HD diagnostics CD scan, mainly because if there are surface problems causing irreparable file system errors they can sometimes be fixed by the HD scan. See what it finds, expecially if it can repair problems.

Unless it reports too much to repair, I'd next create one partition of the HD and run chkdsk myself from the DVD/Repair CD command line as given in Option two here: Disk Check

BTW if you have an old or unused laptop around you can likely swap in it's HD to try it. If not you may need to buy once you get definitive results.
