run system file checker, think its sfc /scannow

otherwise run a windows repair install instead of wiping it.

if you have valuable data on it and you want to save that, i would take out the hhd, move the jumper on it to make it a slave drive. then pop it in another computer. once that's done you can them move the files to a usb flash drive or a data cd.
