I was busy defraging my drive when by mistake i ran out of battery power. Now when i turn my laptop on windows do not start and i get the message Window failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Startup repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. Then it gives me 2 options: 1. Launch startup repair or 2. Start windows normally. I select launch start up repair, then it says Status 0xc00000e9, an unexpected I/o error has occurred. I do have a repair disc but the laptop does not seem to pick it up in the cd drive, even after i made the drive primary boot device in the bios setup. Any suggestions please?

Can you boot to Safe Mode and use Last Known Good?
Unfortunately it sounds like the Windows driver for the disk controller got scrambled. You may be able to change the setting in the BIOS to use another mode for the disk controller. Something generic may allow it to boot the CD.
Another chance may be to download the disk driver for your machine and burn it to CD or copy to USB. Then boot the OS disc and see if you can get it to accept additional drivers.
A bootable USB key with the disk driver on it may be the easiest way.
As example Macrium Reflect recovery CD has a command "drvload" where you can run the .inf file from a USB key to load the driver. Once the system has booted and initialized the disk it may still be able to see it when you warm boot.
Or just copy it over the scrambled one.
