By "trying everything to fix it" can you expand on what you have done so far? This would be helpful in an attempt to isolate the issue.

Had the System been running normally prior to trying System Restore? Have you checked Event Viewer to see if any problems were noted at around the time you tried Restore?

You may have to do a Repair Install: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html?ltr=R

Hello, was your anti virus disabled when you tried to use system restore? Try disabling it and see if it works for you. Also take a look to see if you volume shadow copy is enable

a. Click Start, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search bar and press Enter.

Note: If UAC (User Account Control) window is prompted for permission to continue, please click Continue.

b. Double click Volume Shadow Copy Service and switch to General tab.

c. Change the Startup type to Automatic and click Apply.

d. Click Start and click OK.

See if any of that helps

install Linux then.

 

edit:or do a 'repair installation' from a repair disk...

 

edit edit: you may have made one earlier when your machine was functioning fine (that would have been a good idea), but if not you can find one easily enough online by searching " windows repair disk 32/64 bit ISO" Whichever it is you use that is.
