    First, can you mount the hard drive in another PC and recover data? If so, consider a format and reinstall but get your DATA SAFE first!

        As Ossian suggests, first thing to do is mount the drive in another machine as a slave, log on that machine as an administrator, and go find / backup your files. If you have issues seeing the files, you may need to take ownership of them first.

        Once your files are safely backed up, I'd try the repair again before going for the reformat / reinstall option. Where did repair stall last time? This time, unplug any unnecessary devices / cards as it may have had issues finding drivers (a wild guess).

        Post back with progress.
        Cheers,

          iRock, for you next post, please use a more appropriate description of your problem. Looking at this one it looks like a title for a porn spam post.

          Thanks.
