The other day I accedentally tripped over my power cable and it came out of the wall outlet while my computer was running. When I tried turning it on again, it went through POST, checked the drives and PCI cards, then when it got to the OS load part, It gave me the message

Remove disks or other media.
Press any key to restart.

when I press any key, it just repeats the question. my computer specs are all in my profile.
Thanks for reading

Try booting into safe mode and then do a system restore
Press F8 at boot up to get into safe mode

To run System Restore in safe mode
Access System Restore through Help and Support.
Follow the instructions on your screen.
Notes

To access the System Restore Wizard, click Start, and then click Help and Support. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Using System Restore to undo changes, and then click Run the System Restore Wizard.
While the computer is in safe mode, System Restore does not create any restore points. Therefore, you cannot undo a restoration that you performed when the computer was in safe mode.
You can use System Restore to restore your computer to any restore point while in safe mode. If you cannot start the computer in standard mode, you can use System Restore to restore to a time when you could start the computer without errors.
To restore to a time when your computer started without errors, select a restore point as close to the time you remember it last started without errors.
If System Restore is suspended because of insufficient disk space, you cannot enable it by making more disk space available while in safe mode. You must restart the computer in standard mode and make more disk space available.
