I have Lenovo laptop with i-5 processor, 8 gb ram and 1 tb HDD with win7 os. On last Monday evening (18-Nov-2013) when i tried to start my laptop, it gave me blue screen error just after the windows boot logo (before appearing of login screen), and this error lasts just for a fraction of second. And right after that it restarted and showed options of Safe Mode, normal mode etc. Then I ran the system in safe mode but it stops while loading aswrvrt.sys and again gives blue screen error. I tried repairing my os with the win7 CD and repair disc but the process stops after the windows files are loaded. Its not even able to detect the OS, it just hangs there. While trying to format and install a fresh os the same thing happened again, it gets stuck at "setup is loading...". I have tried farbar tool also but as I am not able to run the repair option I tried running in freeDos but it says that the program can't run on Dos. Please help me out with this...

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

The following will serve two purposes, it will let us know if you can boot from a bootable disc, and it will let us know the condition of the hdd.

 

Please download SeaTool for DOS.
 
When the SeaTools for DOS website opens click on I Accept, then click on the Download button in step #4.
 
This download is a ISO image which you will need to burn to a CD in order to create a bootable disc with which to run the diagnostic tests.
 
To burn this ISO file to a CD or DVD please downlaod ImgBurn and install it.
 
Insert blank CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive.
 
Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.

Click on the Browse for a file icon:

Right click on the Start orb startorb_zps06e1f985.png, then click on Downloads.  Scroll down to the SeaTools for DOS download and click on it.  This will load the ISO image, you will see the information listed as it is in the image below outlined in red.

Click on the blue arrow (also outlined in red) to start burning the bootable CD.
 
Once the disc is created load it in the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer.
 
Please note:  You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
Please run the long test and include the results in your next post in this topic.
 
 
Edit:  Is this topic posted at another website?

You  may not have a seagate hard drive, I had a lenovo computer harddrive getting stuck on a certain file when it tried to boot up in safemode as well,

 

You may want to grab a linux live ISO with recovery tools on it such as Parted Magic and then boot into linux, check the drive with S.M.A.R.T and go from there,

 

if your hard drive is in fact a seagate drive try the Acronis disk tool from Seagate to take a hi-level disc image , or, if you get lucky try making a low-level disk image with clonezilla which is included in Partedmagic live disc to get a low level image and either replace the drive, reformat and try to re-use, or look to see if your computer is still under warranty so that lenovo will replace the drive for you ( i went this route)

You  may not have a seagate hard drive

 

The follow is an excerpt from SeaTools review at About.com.

 

 

 

Pros
  • Two versions are available depending on needs
  • Both versions are easy to use once installed and are completely FREE
  • SeaTools for Windows tests hard drives no matter the manufacturer
  • SeaTools for DOS contains a highly useful "acoustic test" for noise troubleshooting
  • SeaTools for DOS is OS independent so it's automatically compatible with ALL operating systems

Tom2014, I would be willing to bet between what you included in your first post in this topic and the results of the SeaTools scan the hdd is gone.

I also performed a short self-test using Disk Health and the log is attached.
