Windows 7: Won't load past "Starting Windows" screen

Won't load past "Starting Windows" screen

Upon start-up, two options are given: "Start Windows Normally" or "Launch Startup Repair (recommended)".
If the Start Windows Normally option is chosen, then the starting windows screen comes up and stays. If I launch the startup repair option, then I still can not get the problem fixed.
From the Startup Repair Screen however, I can launch command prompt and restore options, how can I fix this, a restore is not really an option because I have not set up a restore point in a while.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you in advance.

It's possible that you can't access the actual startup repairs from within Windows itself. You might have to boot from either an installation disk or a previously made system repair disk. And it might take running the startup repair 3 times before all issues are fixed.

Sorry but these options did not work, is it possible to do something through the command prompt, such as a scan or something, I don't know but it has worked for me in the past.

Boot the Win 7 DVD and take the Repair path. When allowed, chose Command Prompt then run chkdsk.

Type chkdsk /r and press Enter

Allow it to complete. It can take an hour or more depending on the size of the drive.

If that doesn't work then your next step would be to do a Repair Install (not Repair my computer), see here: Repair Install

If your system is infected it may not repair until it is cleaned up. Work through these steps to know that you've done everything that can be done for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.
