Windows will not start issue

I left my laptop on last night when I went to bed. When I woke up, I checked on my laptop and I was shocked to see on the screen that Windows will not start, instead it's either I will run the Repair Setup of Windows or start it normally. I chose the repair setup but it got stacked up in loading.

The HDD light is on portraying that it is running. I attempted to run windows normally but same thing happened; it was stacked in loading screen. So I tried running it in a Safe Mode, Windows loads for a while, then showed the welcome screen. I thought it was going to work but after the blue screen flashed, it restarted. Since I don't have any choice, I tried rebooting it with Windows DVD Installer as well as with the HDD, but still, same thing happened.

I removed my HDD then plugged it with another laptop using a USB HDD converter/adapter. It took a long time before the laptop could recognize the HDD. I clicked on the Windows Explorer and it states that my HDD needs to be formatted. Why is it that Windows cannot be installed using the DVD Installer nor run using the Repair Setup regardless of my HDD's condition? I have to recover my files from my HDD.

Can someone please help me?

BSOD usually appears if Windows encountered a problem that it needs to stop completely. It can be hardware, software or driver related. If you have installed new software or hardware then got the error, then that may what cause the problem. Try to do a system restore by logging into the safe mode and restore to a previous point prior to the installation.

Also, computer may experience BSOD if your Windows partition does not met the minimum amount of free space needed to boot up the Operating System. 15% of a drive’s capacity should be free at all times for windows to load. You may also want to run a virus scan via the safe mode. Updating to available windows service packs and updates can also be of great assistance.

What may have happened to your computer when you left it on overnight is that it may have overheat and thus causing that problem. And therefore my suggestion is that you shut down the computer completely for sometime, like an hour and then boot it again and then see if the process goes on successfully.

In case the computer prompts you to run the system repair, then do so. Give it ample time to check and fix all problems without interrupting and see if the problem will be fixed. In case the problem still persists, then run the computer in safe mode and see if it will load. You might need to run system restore after that if an action was taken that is making the computer to malfunction.
