Windows 7: computer suddenly stopped responding

computer suddenly stopped responding

Hi, I really need your help guys. So, my computer suddenly stopped responding / hanged, cant do anything, not even CTRL+ALT+DEL . so I long pressed the power button, waited for a while then turned it back on. but when it starts to load, 2 options comes up Repair Windows (recommended) and Start Windows Normally . Either of those ends up loading the System Repair, it starts to load the files, but ends up in a blank space with a cursor. so then I tried again using a USB System Repair Disc (Copied the content of the created System Repair disc to the Flash Drive) it boots up the USB, loads the files, goes to the blank screen again, then after about a minute or so, the first option box appears. "select your keyboard input method". Then i click Next, then it took about half an hour or so to take me to the "Select your operating system" which is blank. still i waited then about another half an hour, it starts to search for windows installation. then another half an hour, it finishes the scan. Windows 7 is showed in the option box, but the partition size is 0 mb. so then i just clicked next, then about another half an hour. System Recovery Option box appears. then i clicked Startup Repair and it starts scanning. now then, more than an hour later a cmd prompt appears minimized on the bottom left corner of the screen. so i just let it do its work. then about an hour and a half, cmd box is gone and the system is now "Attempting repairs... Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." so I waited. after 5 hours, its still on that screen. at this point I dont know what to do.
(it took me more than an hour just to get to the System Recovery Option dialog box with all the options listed. image 2). Tried booting in safe mode, same thing happens. Stuck at Attempting repairs. Tried to cancel, and gives this error message, "You can not cancel to this point of repair (or something like that)"

Please help, I do not have Restore Points for system restore to use. I havent backed up my files. 200-250gb of files (500gb HD, 90gb free) yes i know i should have, but i havent got any external HD to store it. and i did not expect this to happen. please, im desperate.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I also have the installation Disc. tried using the disc to Repair System. but the "Select your keyboard input method" does not appear. (Thats why i used the System Repair created from another computer with the same bit.(64-bit))

*Edit (11/1/2011)
ok, so after waiting for about 14 hours. no progress. now i tried to do the "Bootrec.exe" from the Command Prompt in the System Repair Options, and here is what it said, "Total Identified Windows Installations: 0" . trying to do a Repair Install now, using my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installer.
