Windows 7: Restore & Repair Don't Work

31 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Restore & Repair Don't Work

my w7 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 w7 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 w7?

btw, if i get that w7 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.
