As the title says, I'm having an issue where I can't seem to get to my desktop, instead always leads me to the startup repair option.

This happened 6AM while I was watching a tv show on a website. It suddenly restarted on its own, so I let it and just went to sleep thinking that it wouldn't be a problem.

I've tried many different things, all day, trying to fix it but hasn't gotten me anywhere thus far.

Please help!

I have a Win7 Installer w/SP1 installed into my USB drive. Tried doing a system repair through my USB, took a lot longer but still gave me the same results.
Tried SFC /SCANNOW, CHKDSK, and many other different routes but they all lead to the same screen.

I read another forum with the poster having the same problem and had it fixed, so please help!!

If I have to reformat to factory settings, I woulnd't mind if only there was a way to get all of my files into my external.
