Windows 7 endless loading bar?

Hello guys,

For a few days I keep getting this message when I start my computer.

13d135c74ecb10231e0629cb772b496a.png

When I choose for the first option (launch startup repair) the following happens:

I get this white loading bar with the text: 'windows is loading files'. After that I get a loading
bar that looks like the loading bar you normally have on windows vista. (click the link below for a picture).
When it is done loading it sticks on a (blank) black screen.

When I choose the second option (start windows normally) I don't see anything besides of the loading bar I
mentioned above.
Here is a picture to see the loading bar i'm talking about.

I REALLY REALLY hope someone can help me out. I have some important files I don't want to get rid of.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT/Additional information:

I already tried many things to fix the problem I mentioned above, this includes:

- Disconnecting external peripherals
- Boot into safe mode (I just get a black screen with text in white saying something like ''Windows 7 ulimtate sp 1, build 7621''. And most of the time I don't even get past classpnp.sys. No clue why?
- I also tried the option ''Last known good configuration'' in the advanced boot options menu.
- Tried the repair your computer option from the windows 7 CD, but when I click on it, I only get to see the installation background wallpaper and the mouse cursor.
- I tried reinstalling, and that's when I faced my next obstacle. Whenever I press ''Install now'' (on the Windows 7 installation), it gets stuck on ''setup is starting''.


I really don't know what to do or what the issue is, i'm so tired i have tried everything, posting this is my last chance, I hope someone can help me.


Thanks in advance.

Boot into BIOS setup to see if the HD is detected. If so run the maker's HD diagnostics extended CD scan from Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start .

If it passes test the RAM next from same tutorial's introduction.

Make sure your WIn7 disk is bootable and detects installation in another PC. If not burn another using fresh ISO from the link in tutorial.

If disk still won't boot, reset BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If it boots disk, confirm the Partition MarkedActive is 100mb SysReserved (preferred if you have it) and then run Startup Repair repeatedly with reboots.

If it still won't repair then start at the top of steps to disinfect, work through the steps which try everything possible leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Factory Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

umm, sice windows is loading, doesn't that mean that the HD is booting, so it IS detected?

That's WinRE loading Startup Repair which is failing. Could still be a failing HD. Checking it's detected is always first step when HD is possibly at issue.

The failure to boot a disk could also be the HD blocking it's boot, so it should be unplugged to see if disk will boot once disk is confirmed good, BIOS is reset to defaults. Use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key to trigger disk to boot after setting HD first to boot in BIOS.

The symptoms strongly indicate HD failure, BIOS needing reset (to boot disk), RAM issue, hence the suggestions for hardware testing first. If these are clear then work through the other steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

As I listed above I can't get into safe mode:
When it is loading stuff, it get stuck on classpnp.sys.

You have more than a dozen other steps to try. Work through each without missing any. Ask back if you need help.

I'm suspecting it's a failing hard drive. Disconnect the drive and connect it to another PC, move the data away from it.
Then once the data is safe off it, run the manufacturer's drive checking tools. You find them by googling with the drive's model and/or serial.

HD Diagnostic extended CD test was given to try in Post #2.

Confirm you worked through every step in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

It's highly unusual someone would work through that many steps and not report back issues or need more help with a single step.
