Windows 7: Win 7 cannot be repaired

Win 7 cannot be repaired

Hello,

I have win 7 installed on my laptop along Ubuntu desktop 10.10. My laptop fell from my bed (), but it wasn't really a hard bump - it fell sideways. Anyway, after the hit, I tried to boot Windows 7 (the boot loader, grub, etc. are fine), but since then it keeps going into this recovery stage (Windows in loading files...) and when I try to fix it, I get this error: "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically". Then it asks me to send information to microsoft, and downwards there are these 'signatures': StartupRepairOffline, AutoFailover, signature 06: 7, signature 07: CorruptAcl.
The question is if I can restore my main system files (delete them all and add them again or sth like that - just like in win xp case). Any other suggestions are welcomed
Thanks.

P.S. I've also tried system restore, but it didn't work at all - regardless of the system restore points I selected.

Unlees you have a backup image - looks like a custom reinstall is the way to - assuming you have installation media.

So there's absolutely no way to refresh the system files? :/ This is fantastic

I would be concerned that your HD may have damaged sectors from the fall

In Ubuntu it still works perfectly. I've browser through the windows partitions, so it's all fine, as far I as can see.

You can only replace all system files with a repair install - to do that, you have to be able to boot in first.

You could try checkdisk from the 7 recovery media.

Never mind, I've already begun a new install. There's no point in wasting time.

windows 7 repaired my gpu fan
I have a Point of View 9800GTX+ and this one comes with low cost about 50mm fan. Using XP, it constantly didn't start spinning at boot, causing overheating later under load. Now in 7 the problem is gone. I think it's because of drivers.
