Last night, I tried to shut down my computer. It was taking ages, programs were still up and running, and no 'Force shut down' window came up. So I became impatient, and through the start menu I clicked on hibernate, and it did. This morning, it resumed itself, but instead of it going onto the logon screen like I expected, it went straight to the desktop and had the 'Force shut down' window up. I quickly clicked cancel, and everything seemed fine. Then I realized Windows 7 was in classic theme. I went to the personilization menu, only to find out my themes were all greyed out and I couldn't click on any of them. After this, action center kept on saying I should start windows security services. I clicked 'Turn on now' but it came up with something like this: Windows could not start this process or service. Please contact your administrator... etc. And to my horror none of my vital services would start up... network adapter, display driver
, RPS server for the battery and my screen brightness was limited.
The first thing I thought I would do was try sfc /scannow command. But when I entered it in elevated cmd, it said the Windows repair services could not be started. So I couldn't do any scans within Windows. Booting into all three safe modes, none of the services would start up. Currently, I am running chkdsk and it is taking forever on stage 4/5 (NTFS). If it is not fixed then, I will boot up from my install disk and run sfc /scannow then (I forgot I could do this until now). I am going to wait for any other suggestions from you people, and if it can't be solved, it has going to be a clean install and will take me weeks to reinstall everything I had.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I have to do homework on my laptop as well
