So here is the story, I recently shutdown my Windows 7 Laptop manually because it was not responding. Now when I load up the computer it takes an extreamly long time to get to the Login screen(aprx. 15min) when normally it is instant. Once there I try logging into the account and I am still waiting from a response from that.
I cannot boot from the disk because there was no disk that came with the Windows 7 laptop. I have no idea what to do please help.

Try the diagnostic tools that are built into Windows 7. When your booting into the BIOS I think if you press f8 or something it will give you the option to boot into the built-in diagnostic tools.

If you can still boot into windows, you should be able to make yourself a recovery disk. If not, you can download a copy from here = http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/
If you click o the Start orb for the menu, type "create" in the search box then select "Create a system repair disk", then just follow the prompts.

You do need to repair Windows with a recovery disc. Your best bet is to download the file Geenome mentioned at another computer, or order a disc from your manufacturer. You could also try putting the laptop HDD in a desktop, and scan it for bad sectors that might be corrupting part of your bootup.
If you have a copy laying around, or $89 burning a hole in your pocket, you could pick up a copy of SpinRite 6 and try to repair the file system with it. If that works, you still need to immediately check for Disk Errors in Windows once it boots back in.
