Windows 7 not starting

I have Windows 7 on my HDD 80 GB in drive G:\ and i cannot login to windows 7. C:\ drive has XP and its working fine. I have two other HDDs with Ubuntu and opensuse.
When i tried to boot from safe mode in windows 7, it stopped at Classpnp.sys and restarted. When i boot normal,everytime i see the bootsplash on windows 7 and after that it restarts. I ran the Startup repair more than 5 times. It shows "root cause found : System Volume on Drive is corrupt ". I have tried "chkdsk G:/r" in windows x to find any errors in the partition but nothing was found .
plz help.
Thanks in Advance .

Search Google for Classpnp.sys issues. This driver can get corrupted and give the symptoms you are experiencing. They are many different solutions including replacing the file using a Unbuntu boot disk.
Best of luck
