Disk controller problem, windows doesn't start,

I have a HP probook 450 with Windows 7 ultimate,recently I updated all of its drivers using a 3rd party software,The following day when I turned it on,my laptop just froze up in the "starting windows" thing,and then it shows up a blue screen with message saying that the problem was the hard disk controller then my laptop restarts automatically and goes to the menu where it shows start windows normally and launch startup repair.The status repair did not solve the problem so I did some digging and used the command prompt from the system repair tools to solve it, when I restarted the lap it shows safe mode bla bla bla and then start windows normally,selecting start windows normally I found that the problem still persists, restarting again and by pressing F8 key shows the menu with every option except system repair. How can I solve this?
