Specs: Windows 7, Intel I3/4GB
Windows 7 blue screened. I tried turned pc and turned it back on and it said it could not find a bootable drive. Next day I turned it on and it gave me the option to start in safe mode. I started it in safe mode but after 8 hours it says it is repairing disk errors. I tried to cancel,but the process said "current repair opertion can not be canceled". Can I power the computer down and try again?

yes you can power up and down as much as you like, but it sounds like your HD may have died, you can download a copy of the repair recovery cd here make a copy, set the bios to boot from cd, and run a repair/restore flash from a system image if you made one.

you can also try a factory restore,(if it is a manaufacturers machine) although that will delete all files on the C: drive it may save you your drive. Depending on the manufacturer you would usually tap an F key repeatedly during boot to get to the restore partition.
However i would suspect that you drive may have irrecoverable so be prepared to either buy a new drive or contact the manufacturer for a replacement drive.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
