It could be a bad hard drive. See if the BIOS has a check disk option. If not, you need to at least get a Windows 7 disk which you can download and burn to a DVD or flash drive and run a new setup on the laptop. You can try to do a setup without a format and that will save your files, but that won't fix any drive issues and may not work if there are drive issues. Look at the Windows COA sticker with the key code that should be on the laptop and let me know what the version is, I can get you a link to the right OEM download. You will probably need to get a new hard drive for the laptop from the way it's acting.
