Windows 7: System repair loop and unreadable file record segments while chkdsk

System repair loop and unreadable file record segments while chkdsk

My laptop got a blue screen that day, didn't think it was a big deal (i get blue screen every 2 months or so, drivers prolly) so I restart and it asks me if I want a repair, I click yes. But it doesn't find a problem, instead on the next restart automatically goes to repair (I cant even enter safe mode before it enters), and the loop starts. When I go to advanced options after the failed repair I ran a chkdsk /r on my E: (drive used for movies, music, etc), all fine, but when I do it on D: (windows installation drive, idk why its called D not C but oh well...) around 101264/234496 on stage 1/5 it says file record segment unreadable. I'm still running the chkdsk (takes quite a long time). Any ideas as to why it does that? I can't go anywhere but the repair screen, and then the advanced options (pressing F8,F10,Del or whatever else while loading doesnt work).
I read it might be hard disc failure but I have this laptop for a little under 6 months...
Edit: The title should be "Startup repair" not system repair

Your HDD is failing. Backup any important data to an external medium ( after completing CHKDSK ) and submit the laptop for warranty.
