Windows 7: Hibernation mode gone wrong?

Hibernation mode gone wrong?

I apologize if this is in the wrong section, I literally just joined to ask this question.

So my laptop is an older Toshiba Satellite running Win 7 Pro. In December, I got a 2TB Samsung Evo SSD to replace the old 1TB HDD, and after some trial and error, I managed to clone it and boot successfully. No problems at all since then, restarted it several times with no problem.

Well, last night, I forgot to plug it in when I was on it, and the battery ran down and started to shut the computer down. I've had it happen before on the old HDD where it would do a sort of quasi hibernation where the screen would be black but backlit, and the power button wouldn't turn the screen on, I'd have to hard reboot it. But this time, it didn't work; it turns on, the Toshiba logo loads, and then it just stops. I can use F12 to get into the boot menu, but I can't get into safe mode. I tried swapping the SSD back out for the old HDD (haven't wiped it yet), but it claims it's not bootable. Same with the USB stick I used to clone the drive to begin with; didn't wipe it, it worked previously, now it won't. It's odd. I also tried to drain the capacitors in case they were stuck, and that hasn't worked either. It just seems to be stuck in this weird hibernation mode and I can't kick it out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello Sokudoingyou and welcome to Seven Forums,

Lets start with the simple. Have you fully charged the Laptop battery, or have tried turning on Laptop from the mains?

Left it on to charge overnight and tried it, took out the battery and pressed the power button to try and drain any residual, charged it up and left it open off the charger to drain the battery that way....pretty much tried every method of charging and not to try and kick it on. Don't know what you mean by "from the mains" though.

During POST enter BIOS and look for date and time. Are them correct?
As the battery is old and discharged completely, it can be that it is not accepting charge.
Try to take off the battery and boot only using the charger (the main power supply ("from the mains")).

Please correct your specs as you mention you have a PC/Desktop, not a Laptop.

At no point did I say I have a desktop, I've been pretty obvious in talking about a laptop.

I have been able to go into the BIOS and the date and time are correct. And I did already try removing the battery and booted using the charger only.

It seems you have a corrupted BIOS.
Enter BIOS and see if it has Default settings. If it doesn't, try to set the default boot order to your SSD.
Have a look at all BIOS settings.

Oh damn it, it does. That's my mistake, I thought I entered that correctly. I'll fix that.

If I go into BIOS, it has the SSD correctly as the default, and does recognize it. I just can't get it to fully boot.

Boot from the Win 7 installation disk (64bit version), go to repair and do a boot repair.
If you don't have a win 7 installation disk let me know what version you have installed (Home, HP, Pro or Ultimate)
Win7_HP_SP1_English_x64

Win7_Pro_SP1_English_x64

I should still have my old backup discs, but that's not what you mean, correct?

Also, does boot repair wipe the drive, or just fix the boot and leave the rest alone?
