Windows 7: Stuck repair

Stuck repair

NEED HELPPPPP!

I've been wanting to know on what causes my computer startup repair to just get stuck in this screen (image at attachment link) I keep cancelling it everytime I open up my computer but because of microsoft windows and just my computer in general keeps hanging and freezing (always did sfc /scannow, virus scan and all available solutions that didn't work for me except for the startup repair) I decided to just let the startup repair do its thing, but its about 2 hours and the percent is still the same as usual. So can someone help me on how to fix this problem?

Hi Rikazo,

[1] That is running a chkdsk.
[2] Have you tried running Startup Repair?
[3] Have you got any other HDD's attached?
[4] Have a look at this => Startup Repair - Infinite Loop Recovery.

I hope this helps!

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

Following command will fixes errors on the disk and locates bad sectors and recovers readable information.


Code:
Chkdsk D: /r


Please replace partition letter D: with Windows installed partition letter. When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

Windows detected a problem on your disk and it is running a disk check.
On a healthy disk, check disk takes some minutes.
If it is taking hours, your disk may be dying. (that is why the computer in general keeps hanging and freezing)
Once it finish and enter windows retrieve the check disk log and post it here.

Oh sorry about that! Wasn't sure if disk check and startup repair is the same.
I did try to do it by going to the recovery options but whenever I get to that screen, I can't move my mouse. Keyboard BIOS isn't working either.

Sounds like the hard drive is bad.

Try removing it and attaching a new hard drive.

Well if theres no other choice, Can reformating my hard drive (both C and D) fix the issue?

Sounds more like a physical fault with the disk rather than just the filesystem.


Better to check with a drive manufacturers tool, WD does one https://downloads.wdc.com/windlg/WinDlg_v1_36.zip

You might need something bootable to check that disk. I think seagate do one of those
