Win 7 laptop .Got a message of a bad shutdown. On re-start, I have been stuck in "Start Up Repair all day.
Shutdown/power off by holding down power button.

Then even though I selected "normal start" it again went to Start Up Repair....

Please help!

It starts with the message: "windows did not shutdown....." and offer a "normal" start up or the "repair" choice.
Selecting "normal" gets a "Loading windows files" for a few a seconds then it goes to the "Repair" screen.

Looks like Windows is corrupted.

Got into Dell's pre-boot testing and got a HDD self-test fail.

I assume that means I need a new HDD..

Thanks for the help!!!

If I replace the HDD myself and have restore disks from 2012.

Is that enough to get windows and all the programs back?
