Windows 7: Desktop won't boot after a long sleep/hibernate.

Desktop won't boot after a long sleep/hibernate.

Please help. My computer suddenly won't boot after I left it sleeping/hibernating for a few hours. When I came back, I moved the mouse and press the 'esc' button and there was no response. I then decided to do a restart and it shows the windows logo then it shuts down on its own after. I've tried several restarts but it just stuck on this loop every time I do it. I also noticed that the windows logo is not on the center of the screen(it's a bit off to the left). Is this a graphics driver problem? It has been working properly since I installed windows 7 on my machine. I have an ati radeon 4650 HD graphics card.

So far, I've tried booting into safe mood and downloaded the latest catalyst but It failed to install. I also tried system restore from different restore points and failed. I've ran start up repair and it says it wont be able to repair it. (Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically)

My last option would be to restore my windows from a back up image but I'm pretty sure there would be a way to fix this.

I appreciate your help.
