BSOD after power outage, won't boot
I am having an issue with booting up my custom built desktop, but first I'll give a chain of events to help you better understand the situation.
I was surfing the web, when a power outage hit for about 15 seconds or so. Everything is plugged into a surge strip built for a computer. When the power came back on, I waited for a bit, then powered it up. The post logo and whatnot appeared as usual, and prompted the unexpected shutdown screen, I selected normal startup. It went to the win 7 startup with the "fireflies", but right when the fireflies showed up, it freezed for a quarter second and blue screened, then auto restarted. Ran startup repair after the reboot, and it said it could not repair the computer automatically, article 1 in the next post. Did a memory diagnostic, no problems. Tried to boot in safe mode, same BSOD, the safe mode stopping at a certain file immediately before blue screening, as shown in article 4 below. Then tried a restore point, tried 6 different restore points, and none of them worked giving an error code shown in article 3. I stopped the auto reset, to catch the blue screen code, and it is article 2 below.
I wanted to see if anyone had any insight to my situation. I can reformat and start fresh, but want to see if there is a better way. A surge strip should protect against a power outage, right? Never had a problem on a force shut down before. If anyone can help me figure out how to get my machine starting again, I would be eternally grateful.
p.s. boot is to the SSD, where the OS is located in the system specs below

Can you still get into bios?
Yes it's a process of elimination.
Here is a great Tutorial from one of members, Greg.
It has lots of great ideas, please read completely.
Unplug all drives except the one Windows 7 is on. Check the connection on the SSD to make sure their no signs of burnt anything.
Unplug all external hardware not needed. External drives, printers, memory cards ect.
Keep your keyboard hooked up.
If you can get into bios check and see if the Windows 7 drive is in the first boot order.
Also check and set your bios to default.
At this time it wouldn't hurt to check the cmos battery. A power surge might of shorted it or it's socket. Their cheep, about 4 bucks. Their probably isn't any hardware problems it most likely did something to the bios/chip set.
With a surge protector and a quality power supply this isn't suppose to happen with just a short period of power loss and boot.
From you power supply specs.
Over Temperature/Current/Voltage/Power Protection, Under Voltage Protection, and Short Circuit Protection provide maximum safety to your critical system components
Just a note so I don't forget.
