Startup recovery stuck on attempting repairs

My laptop crashed and re-booted, on start up it went into startup recovery, But has been attepting rapairs for over 10 hours.

I have tried to get to system restore using win 7 disc but it just goes back to startup repair and sticks. so I never get to advanced options.

Anyone any ideas other that clean install?
