Download the disk tools from the manufacturer.
It looks like your hard-disk is dying.

"ETA of 300+ hours . Is this normal ?"

"CHKDSK Seems to Run Forever. What do I do? ( Windows 8.1 will be the same )

Wait. On Windows 7 and earlier, it can take hours, even days, to fully run. It’s checking every single file on your computer and the larger the drive, the longer it will take. If you interrupt it, you’re just preventing it from doing it’s job. So when you start your computer again, Check Disk will start again because it wants to finish its job."

Once you have a command prompt, Copy & Paste > chkdsk c: /f /r or to unlock a drive > chkdsk C: /f /x /r and then press <Enter> ( replace C with the correct drive letter )

If you do get it running, I would immediately purchase a new hard drive or SSD and clone the old drive over to the new one and switch out the drives. If a drive is not immediately available I would make and verify a back up of all of your personal files, then make image of the hard drive and store it onto an external hard drive or DVD's. if you use Windows Back up for this then make a WIndows Start Up Disk in the back up section which will allow you to reimage this onto a new drive if it becomes necessary. For other back up software, they should have the option of a boot disk to perform this task as well.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
