Windows failed to start. PC help?

Hey guys I turned my PC on earlier and it doesn't boot properly , instead I get this;

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer (I don't have one of these)

Choose your language settings and then click next

Click "repair your computer"

File: /windows/system32/config/system

Status: 0xc000014c

Info: windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt"

Any advice on this issue?

My keyboard won't work at all on this menu and I don't seem to be able to navigate it or anything.

I really don't know a great deal about computers so if you have any questions feel to ask but I'm not sure how helpful I can be.

Thanks for any help

Have you tried to start it in fail safe mode?
