run chkdsk /r from cmd prompt if you can. Otherwise looking at startup repair or rebuild i would htink. Unless you can restore point in safe mode?

If you can, plug drive in as secondary drive in another machine and chkdsk

when you boot into safe mode do you get to the desktop?

run sfc /scannow from command prompt

did you check the monitor is it ok?

If you can not get a desktop in safe mode you are looking at a complete reinstall.

I would get another new hard drive use it to reinstall with keep existing drive in a D drive this way you can copy data off it once you get windows 7 back up and running.
