A few days ago there was a power cut (this means I can't use my laptop as it needs an external monitor). So I turned it off and left and when I came back it had started itself up and was running the startup error repair tool. It failed obviously so I went through all the tools and nada.
Starting it with normal settings gets it to the windows logo, it the does nothing for a while, crashes and restarts. The same goes for trying to load it in safe mode.
I followed this guide http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/fix-windows-startup/ none of it worked so it directed me here.

What do?

I would run Startup Repair again...running it once sometimes doesn't do the job.

If you can get to Repair Options using F8 at boot, try doing a System Restore to a date before the power cut.

Where I live, the power-offs are 3-4 times per year, as of usual. ...and I do not have a battery!

 

I would recommend you to try starting your Windows in a "fail-safe mode / last that was working", then running a scandisk (it's a "scanning for errors" function in right-click on a drive, then Properties, then a Service tab including it) on your main primary Windows partition - C. Otherwise, if it doesn't boots up on it, try the safe mode instead - with a scandisk as well.

 

...afterwards, after using a scandisk function on primary drive C, you can put a restore point there. If an OS was damaged - roll it back by using a restore function.
