SSD sector repair, Windows 7 will no longer boot.

I was working on my computer when windows locked up and I was forced into a hard shut down, when I restarted the computer one of my hard drives showed up as invalid and my computer would not recognize it. When I tried to repair the sector to make it valid the it seemed to work, now my computer will not boot into windows at all. I have an SSD HDD set up and I need this computer as it is my main audio work station. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi,

Kindly follow the below mentioned steps in order:

1. Confirm Hard Drive is recognized in BIOS. If yes, follow next step. If NO, load BIOS defaults.
2. Boot to Safe mode and perform system restore. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only. If system restore fails or unable to access safe mode, follow next step.
3. Run Start Up repair by following the steps from the URL mentioned: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-vista/Startup-Repair-frequently-asked-questions
4. If the issue still persists, then try running the Hardware Diagnostics. If you get any error code, make a note of the error code.
