I thought you were in safe mode since you're asking about cmd prompt.

how long was it stuck? is it still stuck on 27%?

is the repair part of windows utility or hard drive utility program?

what is the name/ model # of the hard drive?
how old is the computer?
not yet i will get back to you tomorrow morning
I'm sleepy sorry bye!

Boot into safe mode, and run command prompt. Run chkdsk.exe from it.
how do I run both safe mode and command prompt?
I think if you hit F12 repeatedly (I think I'm not sure) when you boot up your pc, like as soon as it turns on just mash it until a menu pops up allowing you to switch to safe mode
It is F8 and you start hitting it just before the Windows logo would appear.

FYI, F12 is often to access the BIOS, with Delete being the other one I've seen used to get to the BIOS.
Your hard drive probaboly has a bad sector. Actually it's not a "Probably" you do infact have a bad sector.
Press F8 or F6 on startup (don't remember which one) and scroll down to "run command prompt" (or something similar, depends on your BIOS I believe...) and then run chkdsk.exe
