Two days ago I was watching a video (offline) via Divx when my Toshiba A305-S6898 laptop when the audio started to get fuzzy and video started to lag. I closed divx and everything seemed fine, I figured it was just too hot or something so I shut it down for awhile.
When I went to restart it, windows would not load. It would get to the "starting windows" screen and no further. I tried to open it in safe mode and it would freeze. I then used the vista install disk to fix the start up and it failed. It said "windows as found a prob that can not be repaired" (Details below).
I then attempted to restore windows using the set portion of my hard drive. It failed at the same "starting windows" screen. I then used the system recovery disk and it also failed.
I then ran a disk check and a memory diagnostics and both where fine. No errors where found.
After it found no errors I purchased Windows 7 hmPrem X64 and did a complete install. It install OK, But it does the same thing. It gets to the "starting windows" screen and will not go any further.
I then used the windows 7 disk to "repair windows" and did another start up repair. Once again it said the same thing "Windows found a prob that can not be repaired" Here is the error report"

Ive tried to reinstall windows 7 three times now, format my hard drive, rand disk check and memory diagnostics tools three times, and did the start up repair many times. I don't know what else to do.
