sounds like the HDD could have died or be on its way out.

try launching windows in VGA mode to check if its a gpu driver issue.

It does come up checking for hard drive consistency, So should i get a new HDD?
Also how can i check if its a driver problem as i cant use windows?

if you have a windows install cd, you might want to try doing a system repair from it.

oh you need to boot from the windows cd by having it inserted when starting the pc and having the dvd drive as the first boot device.
