Startup Repair Loop

Hello all.

I'm sorry if this is the wrong section to post in, but anyways, on my Dell Inspiron 14 laptop, I left to the mall earlier leaving the laptop locked out of the user, without turning it off, when I came back, the laptop was obviously in some state of hibernation or sleep, I turned it back on, and It went straight to startup repair, for hours now, all I've been doing is trying to follow tutorials online that assist me in hopefully fixing this, I tried the normal repair, and after the restarts it would just take me back to the Startup repair, the repairs always fail, I have no recent System Restore points, and there is a tutorial on this site for using the command prompt in solving this issue but unfortunately I ran out of ideas, and I really don't wish to lose my files on that laptop, I hope someone here can assist me with this situation cause I honestly ran out of ideas...


Thank you all,
Ray95


PS: here is the link for the tutorial I tried.

That's what I've been doing all night yesterday... It wasn't working, restarting it eventually took me to start up repair again and the repair keeps on failing for no clear reason...

Ray,

have you tried booting into safe mode?

lf you can get into safe mode, we'll see if we can't stop the auto reboot.

BOOT TO SAFE MODE


Power down your computer.

Power up your computer.

IMMEDIATELY—Start tapping the SPACEBAR

When the Windows Boot Manager screen appears,
Press the F8 key

The Advanced Boot Options screen will appear.

Using the down arrow key, highlight Safe Mode

Press the ENTER key.

In shorthand,
PowerUp | Spacebar until Windows Boot Manager | F8 | Safe Mode | ENTER
