Windows 8 can't boot and automatic repair won't help.

Hello

Yesterday when I started my computer the usual boot-screen showed up (Windows logo and spinning dots beneath). And it took much longer time for it than usually. I have a SSD so it usually takes just a couple of seconds. Then a blue-screen flashes for about half a second. And the PC restarts with Automatic Repair.

After "Checking disk for errors. This might take over an hour." for about 3 hours I got inpatient and reset the computer. This time the OS wont even boot. So I read a bit in the internet and tried change in bios from AHCI to IDE mode. It have been in AHCI mode for half a year and with no problems. Then it worked but all my Windows settings and applications where gone. Only three icons in the metro slide (Desktop, IE and one more i don't remember).

Anyway I changed back from IDE to AHCI and tried to repair it once more but no progress.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thanks for answers.
