Windows hanging at startup

My sister in law removed her battery while the laptop was shutting down. Now it hangs at startup. I have tried "Startup Repair" and "Last Known Good Configuration", but they seem to be hanging as well. Do they normally take a while? Is there a different way to repair the startup files?

Try booting into safe mode and check event viewer and device manager for errors.

The operating system files were most likely damaged by forcing the laptop to shutdown immediately by removing the power source. If you can access the drive and back up the data, then you could try to do a factory restore. To back the users important data such as documents and pictures you can try booting up with a disc such as the ultimate boot disc, then once you access the drive back up data from the drive to external media such as a thumb drive.  Then if there is a recovery partition on the drive you will boot to the recovery partition then start the factory restore.
