1. what was that 'external application' you have used

2. you may have to reinstall from the recovery partition. What is the make of your PC

3. You can use the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (last entry on the page). Burn that to CD and boot with the CD. Take a good readable picture of the screen and post the picture here. We'll have a look what might be going on.

Not sure whether you can repair. Depends on the damage that was done. But you could do a clean reinstall: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
