Windows 7 BSOD after battery died, stop code 0x00000074

Before I got the BSOD, I was using my computer normally. It was working fine. The battery died, so I plugged my PC in and booted it up. After choosing Windows 7 from the "Choose an Operating System" menu, I saw the "Starting Windows" screen for a LONG time. (Over 2 minutes) The BSOD error is BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO. After the BSOD, I tried to repair the PC. Here is what I have tried:
Startup Repair - Failed during setup (I don't understand what that means)
System Restore - It seems all restore points have damaged registry
CHKDSK - No errors
SFC - Repair pending which requires reboot?
I also tried to access Last Known Good Configuration, but F8 caused 1 of 3 things to happen:
-"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change may be the cause" menu.
-Nothing happens (After startup repair is ran)
-Motherboard beeps a single time (Only happened once, at splash screen)
I am able to access regedit from the Recovery Environment. I can also access my Windows 7 partition through Windows 10, so it is not an issue with my HDD. Let me know if any more details are needed.

UPDATE: I ran Startup Repair 3 times, all with the same error.

Hi JingleXP,

Please run Startup Repair another 3 times (preferrable more) and run chkdsk afterwards also a few times. With each startup repair & chkdsk reboot the system.

You want to run chkdsk with /r parameter on the Windows partition.

Should I force dismount on this volume to run chkdsk?

Yes, /r cannot be done without a unmounted partition.

OK, I got it to work, but I have one last issue. Speccy thinks my temperature is 96 C, but the fan isn't blasting. The fan is barely running, and the temperature sometimes directly drops to 50, then directly to 96. (Raises my suspicion that it is just the program) Also, the CPU and HDD aren't hot either. Is it just a faulty temperature sensor?

See if you get the same result with HWMonitor

Same temperatures, but the issue seemed to fix itself. Thanks for all your help.
