Stuck in a Automatic System Repair Loop on W

I left my laptop in sleep mode over night and when I opened it up, I vaguely remember the screen going gray. So I forced shut down. Now when I switched it back on, the Dell screen loaded but then it'll go black and after a couple of minutes it'll prepare automatic restore and then the screen goes black again and all I can see is my mouse pointer which I can move around but I can't see anything. Then after thirty some minutes the blue screen will appear and say that it's diagnosing my PC or something. This screen stays on for a good one or two hours before it attempts repairs and fails within the first ten- twenty minutes. I have searched the threads online for solutions but I seem to be having multiple problems so I think I do need a thread of my own. I'll be willing to send background information if needed. 

It's a Dell Inspiron laptop which I bought September, 2012. it originally ran Windows 7, and I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I'd be happy to provide all the needed information. 

It'll be a huge service if someone can solve this problem and save my files because there a lot of memories on this laptop as it was my first. Sorry to get all sentimental. Anyways, I want to thank all contributors in advance.


Thank you for the feedback.

Restore it via "System Image Recovery" in Advanced Startup options.

I prefer to use third party software to create a Partition image as I don't fully trust the Windows software to restore any created image.
