Windows 7: Restore & Repair Don't Work

Restore & Repair Don't Work

my Windows 7 64-bit computer acted oddly (after it accidentally got unplugged while on, tho not sure that's what did it). now when i boot i get as far as the windows 7 logo starts to show, then i get that it can't boot.

i changed nothing that i know of.

repair from my bootable Windows 7 disk says it can't. restore, which only lists points from 3 days ago, doesn't work. i did a memory test. it was fine.

am i doomed to do a clean re-install of Windows 7?

btw, if i get that Windows 7 logo, and also a stage where it says it is loading files, that means it is reading from my hard drive, right?

Is the HD detected in BIOS setup? Better run Disk Check and HD maker's extended Diagnostics/Repair CD scan on it as it might have been damaged.
