My computer crashed after a Windows update. Froze on 21 of 27. Stayed there for over an hour. Would not power down. Maybe foolishly I pulled the plug. My batt power is so minimal it cut off quickly. After turning it on, and now conti ue to see the same thing every time:

Windows Startup screen - stays ther 2-4 mins.
Get sent staright to Black screen where my only options are Start w repair or Start normally.
Start normal - Startup Sceen shows for 3-4 minutes and it send me right back to black screen.
Startup Repair - On the "Startup Repair" screen,the "Searching for problems" bar just keeps running and running without any stop or progress. It never does anything.

I am absolutely stuck and have no idea what to do now. I cannot find how to either Restore or Start in safe mode which I think is my best option.

I know a bit about computers but not enough to figure this out. Any advice would really help deter my progression toward hysterics.

Boot from the Windows 7 "System Repair Disc" which you should have made when your PC was working okay.
From the System Recovery Options, choose "System Restore".

Sometimes we have days too hectic to constantly check on our storage status. Before you know it you've got yourself a crash and all of your precious documents, pictures, videos, etc., are gone. Sometimes external drives will give you a hassle and can be costly as well, so why not save money buy cloud back up? As a personal buyer I HIGHLY recommend trying this particular back up cloud because its helped me as an Audio Engineer! ---> <a href=" ">pc backup</a>
