Windows 7: Repair Startup

Repair Startup

Turned the laptop on today and it wanted to repair the startup. It's stuck. Won't load past the screen Repair Startup-imageuploadedbytapatalk1351235218.402426.jpg. If I tried to run windows normally, it comes back to this. Any ideas. A complete reboot is last resort

Boot to Safe mode and perform system restore. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only. If system restore fails or unable to access safe mode, follow next step.

Run Start Up repair from the URL mentioned:

If the issue still persists, then try running the Hardware Diagnostics. If you get any error code, make a note of the error code.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which start with disinfecting since Win7 may not repair until disinfected. Then everything possible to start Win7 is given leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files and running Factory Recovery or Clean REinstaling.
