Windows 7: Toshiba SatelliteL455-S5976 Blk screen on boot with mouse cursor help

We will see I guess. I just don't understand how there can be errors even though I whiped the drive before and stuff. I thought one you wipe a drive if should be error free?

You are misunderstanding "errors." File system errors discovered by Disk Check are often reparable, however massive errors during Disk Check often portend physical problems with the HD.

This is checked by the maker's own HD diagnostics which check the actual surface condition of the HD rather than the file system which reside on it. In some cases bad sectors can be repaired or sequestered, but if not the HD is declared bad to prevent future data loss resulting from continued operation.

Well here is the outcome of the full erasure. This pic is what it says. So I assume the HD is dead.
