Windows crash recovery

Last night I accidentally pulled out the wrong power plugs, crashing my computer. For some reason this meant it wouldn’t start properly. I don’t quite get why that would mean it wouldn’t start as the hard disc didn’t fail, but none the less it wouldn’t : the computer would seemingly just hang and the keyboard was no longer responsive and its lights went out.   The good news is that start-up offered a recovery, and that recovery fixed it and life is good again.  The thing to be aware of though is the recovery boot seemed to be hung for a long long time ; I’m talking like 20 minutes or half an hour. 

If this happens to you, just be patient: it worked for me :)
