I'm hoping someone can help me out here before I go buying spending money needlessly on new parts.
7 days ago my computer was shut down unexpectedly because the powerback up failed to kick in when a power outage occured. When I turned it back on, it was working extremely slow, took about 20 minutes to start up properly and then it was still freezing alot. So I decided to restart the computer to see if it would work, unfortunately, I kept receiving an infinite windows start up repair loop. I decided to take the computer back to the store I bought it from in order for them to fix the issue. They reloaded windows on one partitian and kept some backed up files on another partition. I had difficulties getting the computer up and running (kept getting a black screen). I decided to unplug all of the usbs and restart, and the computer loaded up as per normal. I began re-installing all my old software (music production). I decided to restart my computer because one of the licensing activation software failed to open (Waves Central). When I restarted, the computer ran a disk check, but claimed there were no issues, so it automatically reboot. However, the process kept going in a cycle. I turned off the computer. A few minutes later I decided to boot it up in safe mode. The safe mode boot up and automatically ran a disk check. When I woke up (took very long and I fell asleep), I received an error saying - WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER - Windows has encountered a problem communication with a device connected to your computer" etc.
I restarted a few times but the screen just went blank. I decided to reload windows completely from my personal windows 7 disc.
When the windows 7 disc booted up and I tried to run a repair, I received the message saying "The file or directory D:\Program Files (x86) is corrupt and unreadablei. Please run check disk utility. When I clicked ok, the message popped up with a different directory becoming on readable everytime until it eventually stopped.
I restarted and tried to go through the procedure again, this time those errors did not occur. During the installation, Clean Install (custom), I received an error 5% into it, saying "Windows cannot install required files, the file does not exist..." etc 0x80070002 error.
So I am wondering, can this issue be fixed? Do I need to buy a new Hard drive?
Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
