Windows 7 Startup Repair can't repair this PC automatically

Specs: Windows 7
Out of the blue my computer would not start up. There have been no new installations. Is there anything I can do to fix this or am I going to have to take this for repair? My computer did not come with a start up disk so that is not an option.

If you did not make a Window 7 Repair Disk when the machine was new, Make one from another Windows 7 machine as long as both are 64bit or 32bit. Boot to the Repair Disk and you will have your options. First try a Start Up Repair, that should do it. If it does not, do a System Restore which will use a stored restore point from your hard drive. Of course, if you have a hardware problem like a bad memory stick or a dead hard drive, this would not by itself help you, but it is the first step. If your system does not boot to the Repair Disk (it will usually say 'hit any key to boot from CD/DVD drive'), tap F8 at start up and select boot from CD/DVD drive.
Report results and if you need additional advice on testing it further, we will help you.

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

"Out of the blue my computer would not start up"
Can you get into Safe mode?

If you can, run chkdsk.

Start Windows in “Safe mode with Command Prompt” (F8 on startup)
At the command prompt, Copy & Paste > chkdsk.exe /f and press Enter.
If Chkdsk wants to schedule a check at the next boot, say Yes.
Copy & Paste > shutdown –r – 01 then press Enter to restart Windows.
Chkdsk should run on restart.

When you bought the computer you were supposed to create the repair disks. Those instructions are given when you first boot up for most systems.

Watch the startup screens for instructions. Start tapping F8 as soon as you start the computer. Then choose safe mode or last known good configuration. If neither of them will work then you could try a repair.

If you have personal files that you need to recover before performing a factory reset then try using a live version of Linux, like puppy to copy the files to an external source.
