The F11 'trick' is only useful if you want to do a full recovery of your system, erasing the data & restoring it to factory settings, and if it isn't working then I'm guessing the partition is either not there or unreadable.

The 'trick' you want is to tap F8 a few times as the laptop is starting to boot up and once you are in the safe mode menu start by trying the 'repair my computer' option, if it's available, this will fix the boot problems in a large number of situations. If the 'repair....' option isn't there then post back and you'll need guidance on how to use safe mode and other options.
