Rebooting loop after powercut during start-up

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, 1.995 GHz / 2038 MB
I've searched for around two hours on the net looking for a way to solve this and I haven't found anything, so hopefully if I post my own situation, I'll get some help.

My laptop had no power left, so I plugged in the charger before turning it on. While it was starting up, more specifically on the loading screen (you know, the green/yellow bar with "Microsoft Cooporation" or something like that underneath), I accidently pulled the charger out and it turned off. Put it back in, turned it on again and I got a message (I'm sorry I don't remember the actual message, I didn't pay much attention at the time) It gave me two options, I could either start windows normally, or system repair. I chose system repair because I thought I may have damaged the laptop somehow. So then it asked me to do a system restore and I did it, it rebooted, loaded all the way to the desktop, and just as I was about to go about my business, a blue screen with white writing flashed up for a split second (I couldn't read it at all) and it rebooted again.

This time, it gave me a new black screen giving me three Safe Mode options (Safe Mode, SM with Networking, SM with Command Menu) and then to start windows normally. I started windows normally and it happened all over again.

Now I'm in Safe Mode with Networking. Everything works perfectly fine in Safe Mode.

I have no CDs or anything that came with the laptop, as this was given to me by someone around a year ago.

I've tried accessing Safe Mode through the F8 option as well, just to see if anything would be different, but that didn't work either.

Does anyone know how I can go about fixing this myself? ANY help if really apreciated! :)

When this happened to me with a desktop PC some while back I just chose a much earlier system restore point prior to the power cut, completed the system restore in safe mode and all was well.
