Hi, i have a school Lenovo Thinkpad laptop that recently fell to the floor after someone tripped on the wire. Now when I start it up it says a problem occurred with your pc and it will restart. It game me the code UNMOUNTABLEBOOTVOLUME. After it restarted, this the pc did an automatic repair but its been stuck on "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete". Its been Repairing disk errors for more than an hour now. Its a windows 10 computer. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me.

EDIT: i think the hard drive is clicking. Every half a second it makes a click or scrape sound.

It sounds like the fall has damaged the hard drive.

I hope you have everything backed up?

You can download a windows 10 iso from click here

make the media (USB) and install windows, don't worry about serial number as it will be stored on MS servers and will activate first time you connect to the web.

Reinstall you apps and data from you backup.
