    PC wont boot, goes straight to automatic repair loop

    I was working in Office 2013 and system became unresponsive. Attempted to reboot but now I have the dreaded automatic repair loop running as soon as I boot up. I have run the repair item for over half a day and still not working.Cant get an option to run in safe mode or anything. I have my windows 8.1 disk but dont want to risk losing all the stuff I have on my hard disk - holiday pics, spreadsheets, the works.

    Anyone help???
