The problem was caused by having to pull the power cord after a program locked up the system.
Next time hold down the power button for 5 seconds.
The choices are clear
Either you have a hardware failure or you have an OS problem. Since the repair won't work, you'll have to reload. If the drive is bad, grab your data if you still can, acquire new HDD; you'll have to reload.
Have a scheduled plan for continuity and execute it. Aka a scheduled back up plan.
