    My problem has been a gradual one, and I suspected something like this would happen eventually. For the past two months my computer has been having more and more struggles booting at a quick pace. At times it would freeze mid startup, and then bluescreens. In attempts to fix that issue, I ordered a new SSD and tried to move the bootup sequence onto that new drive. Suffice to say, that only worked so well. Compared to the current issue however, this was nothing.

    I just recently moved into a new apartment and upon startup of my computer in the second day, I was told I had a drive error. This limited my access into my D: drive and slowed my access into files considerably. As such, I tried to fix the issue through online tips and personal insight. The problem was not solved, and upon recent restarts the computer has started a scanning and repairing sequence for drive D:. I would like to be patient and trust that the computer could handle it, there were previous issues trying to use the error check tool from the drives properties. It was able to find errors, but never able to make it part the beginning in terms of fixing them. Now for the automatic startup scan and repair, it has become stuck at 2%. It has been like this for 24 hours now, and I'm curious on what everyone else advises for this situation.
    I'm just trying to take the advice of being patient and waiting it out. Any help is much appreciated!

    Go download the Ubuntu Live CD iso. Right click on it and choose Burn to Disk. Then boot with it and see if it can see the hard drive. Then copy the files you want to keep to a USB memory stick. I think your hard disk is toast.
