Computer will not boot. Startup repair is offline?

When I start up my computer, It shows the DELL logo. Then, it shows a grey bar that spans the screen saying "Windows is loading files..." Next a green bar that says: "Microsoft Corporation" Startup repair automatically starts. It runs for a little while and then it says:

"Startup Repair cannot repair cannot repair this computer automatically
Sending more information can help Microsoft create solutions.
->Send information about this problem (recommended)

[V] View problem details"

The problem details are:

"Problem signature: Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200906
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 14
Problem Signature 07: CorruptFile
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033"

If I click advanced View advanced options for system recovery and support, I get a list of things to do.
System Restore and System Image Recovery have no restore points. The Windows Memory Diagnostic comes up with nothing. I do have access to the Command Prompt.

PLEASE HELP I NEED TO STOP USING FRIENDS' COMPUTERS FOR THINGS.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode? Have you installed any new drivers recently or installed any new software.

If you can get into Safe Mode you could try running the system file checker.

Open a command prompt with elevated privileges and type sfc /scannow then press Enter to run the command.

Are you able to remember what you were doing prior to this problem showing up?

Check this Microsoft article for further help: After you install a device or update a driver for a device, Windows Vista or Windows 7 may not start

You could try doing a System Restore from the Recovery Console by booting your Windows 7 installation DVD.

Let's try to repair Windows 7 correctly first.

Boot the Windows 7 Installation DVD or Repair CD to run Startup Repair from disk so it doesn't depend on known corrupt System files: Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

Make sure Windows 7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

Startup Repair should automate System Restore and System File checker, but if it fails run them separately: SysRestore from System Recovery Options, then SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If Repairs fail with System Reserved partition marked Active, mark the Windows 7 partition itself Active to try 3 separate Repairs.

You can copy out your files using DVD or Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run full Factory Recovery from boot, from Recovery disks you've made or ordered:
Dell Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings Dell Recovery Partition - restoring F8 link
or use a Windows 7 installer for your version to clean reinstall with Product key on COA sticker: Reinstalling Windows 7
