Also you can do the steps to get to the recovery console and type CHKDSK /R and it will run the disk checker program to fix what files it can. This has helped me fix numerous disks. It does not work 100% all the time, but hey 90% isn't too shabby. While it runs it will start counting up % completed, however it may jump backwards a few times. Do not get alarmed this is the computers way of trying to go back and fix corrupted files.
If you get it back running, make a backup of your files. What happened is the worst thing that can happen for hard drives and that is power interuption during a write operation. When that happens files get corrupted. Sometimes hard drives will prematurely fail because of this.

This error code appears if there is no disc in the CD/DVD drive during the tests. This does not indicate an actual Hardware failure. Do not worry.

You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Please select an option:

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices MenuSelect safe mode with networking to download
anti virus and malware
your operating system must be registered and activated
microsoft security essentials
Anti-virus and anti-spyware solution Xp
Anti-virus and anti-spyware solution windows 7 64 bit
you could download and run just the Anti malware program or any other you might need
after you have run the Anti malware program you should do the safe mode option again and use the command prompt option
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode with command prompt then type in chkdsk/f/r which will scan for and and attempt repair of bad files and bad sectors on hard drive
you should have no input while chkdsk utility is in progress any input might further damage your computer
hope this helps
