Today I was on my computer and I accidentally hit the power button. I rebooted my computer, but the screen where you would normally choose Safe Mode or Normal Mode, it said that the boot device could not be detected. It wouldn't do anything else, so I rebooted the computer and this time it came up as usual. I tried to run it in Normal Mode, and it started up. To end my excitement, although the mouse was responsive, I could not click any taskbar icons,and Ctrl Alt Del did nothing. I rebooted once more, this time in safe mode, and ran MSE. A full scan came up empty, so I shut down the computer and waited 30 mins. I came back to it, and started it up again. This time, it came to a screen that said startup failed. It had an option to try to restore the computer to an earlier date, while it was still working. I selected this option, and came back to it 20 mins later.  When I came back, the computer was frozen and unresponsive. I have rebooted many times, doing these same things, and got these results over and over again. Any feedback would be awesome, thanks! :)

Sudden loss of power...may result in damage to system files, regardless of how such occurs.

 

I would try running the chkdsk /r command on the Windows partition.
