Need help! Windows 8 recovery problem

Product Name: Satellite L50
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
I really need help. So I was just browsing on my laptop the other day and then a blue screen came up and something was written. It was like 'KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
Then it restarted.
When i turned on, I was taken to the boot recovery page and there are some options
The first set of options are 'Troubleshoot' or 'Turn off PC' so obviously I click troubleshoot.
Then there is 'refresh your pc' or 'reset your pc' or advanced options.
So i click 'refresh your pc' first, but it says 'The drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again'

So then I click on 'reset your pc'
And it says 'Unable to reset your pc. A required drive partition is missing'

So there is no way I can log on to windows! PLEASE HELP!
