Solved My computer wont boot windows

Specs: Windows 7

My computer was running slowly. Impatient, I took out the batter without shutting down and then re-started windows. Instead of booting up like it normally does (I've taken out the battery while my computer was doing this before and I was fine) after something like this, it went through some process where it tried to repair the system. In the process, a bunch of files were unreadable, and the computer deleted them.

Now, it's like my computer simply does not have windows on it. When booting up, it still recognizes that it is a toshiba computer. After the boot fails, it takes me to the boot menu, where it appears that some of my settings are still saved.

Is this a problem that can be solved by re-installing windows?

✔ Best Answer

It says as though you have corrupt you Windows 7 OS files. If you BIOS is still recognizing your hard drive and other system item, then I would try re-installing your OS. If you have not saved you data prior to this event, then I would recomment using a 3rd party device to read your hard drive, copy your files to another drive then reinstall the OS. I use a USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE hard drive adapter, works great.

I don't know how to get the hard drive out of my computer. I have a feeling that it could be a hard drive issue. I'll try to save it, though. In case I ever can get anything off of it. I got some repair disks from Toshiba. I'll try those. If they don't work, I'll have to replace the hard drive and then reinstall windows, it seems. Thanks you for your help!
