Tap the F8 key constantly when you boot up. When the menu comes up, choose Safe Mode. You should be able to restore it from there.

"When i tried to restore it it says i cant because i have disc errors ..."

Test your hard drive with hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics.

E.g.
Seagate's SeaTools will test (almost) any brand of hard drive.

Do the long test.

The Dos bootable versions of SeaTools can test the hard drive when Windows will not load properly, or even when the drive has no data on it.

It the drive itself passes the test, any data problems on the drive can be fixed one way or another.

Also test your Memory with Memtest86 since bad memory can make it difficult to really evaluate your hard drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
