Hello, hope someone can help with this mess.

 

Gateway DX4831

Operating System Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit1 Processor2 Intel® Core™ i7 processor (up to 1333 MHz FSB)
Intel® Core™ i5 processor (up to 1333 MHz FSB)    

 

Seemed to be running fine, then we had a power outage.  Loaded up to windows without issue, then the next day would not load to windows.  It did, however, go to startup repair for 3 days (yikes!).  I downloaded AVG Rescue to USB and ran all the scans I could.  No viruses have been found, but there are 41 errors.  I think I need some professional help!

 

I did get to windows once, but everything was running painfully slow.  I plugged in a flash drive to try to transfer my photos, but computer would not recognize the device.  Finally it just shut down to a black screen.

 

I can get to the windows recovery screen, but I really wanted to get my personal files, pictures, etc. off before I do that. 

 

I would really appreciate any help you could give.

 

Thanks

:step1: Get to Windows Recovery Environment:

 

  1. Press F8 during startup, until you get the black screen with Repair my computer, Safe mode, ...
  2. Choose 'Repair my computer'.
  3. Then in the System Recovery Options, please select Command Prompt.

:step2: Type in the command prompt: notepad

 

==> Now Notepad will open, then click File - Open, On the "Files of type" box select "All files". From now you can get to my "computer". Also connect the USB-drive or external HD. Next copy your private folders to the USB-device or External HD for backup.
