Windows 7: Windows 7 won't boot/come on

Windows 7 won't boot/come on

I have a Windows Repair Disk and I have tried system restore, system repair, and every other option several times. When I run DISKPART > list volume, it shows all my drives with the status being healthy. I did get one message that I was missing a driver, but I can't find where I wrote it down. I do remember that it had Locale ID: 1033 at the bottom.

I have also run chkdsk and there are no problems. The message at the bottom is:
Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50.

The big question is, did the computer boot into Windows?

Do reboot, if you haven't done so.

It still goes to the same screen, etc. Should I go in and change it to boot from the hard first and not the CD Drive? I don't think this will help, but I can try it.

Changed it to boot from hard drive & it goes to Windows Error Recovery screen as usual.

Saw where someone went into the BIOS and switched the HDD controller from AHCI to IDE to solve this problem.

However, this issue is not within my area of knowledge or comfort zone, since I deal with malware.
