Windows 8 Laptop Shows Load Up Screen and then Turns Black With A Cursor

I have a HP Pavilion g6. Yesterday I reset my laptop because every time I clicked on Chrome, it said that my anti-virus software blocked it. For a few hours after that it worked fine, but whenever I try to turn it on now it will show the HP sign and the swirling loading thingy, but then it will turn black and all you can see is my cursor. After a few tries it said "preparing for automatic repair", but then the screen went black. I've tried a few things, but none of them seem to be working. Help?

Edit: I did a quick system check, and it says my Hard Drive Short DST is failed. I don't know what to do now?
