My laptop will not start. It is saying that it is repairing the hard disk and that it may take over one hour but it has been doing this for four hours

If W8 or above turn laptop on and switch off after 7 seconds by holding down the start button.. Do that 3 or 4 times and you should get a page pop up giving you different methods of sorting it.

If you can get into cmd you could try sfc /scannow to see if it finds any problems and fixes them.

chkdsk can take ages depending on the size of the hard drive and how much you have stored on it.
