Can't say I've ever done that before...

Oh well, enjoy your Sunday afternoon installing Windows yet again! :D

the reset probably happened whilst a file was being moved therefore corrupting it and if that file was something vital then thats going to cause problems... you could take the drive out and put it in another computer and try defragging it and see if that heals the issue... or do a system recovery via your windows cd... or fresh install.

I always switch off before moving.

plus windows repair is will give you the ability to get into windows again, but if you've used windows update, then file versions will be borked!
