Hp laptop will not start up

Specs: Windows Xp

I have a HP Pavillion dv1000 laptop and have
Windows Xp. It has been working relatively
fine(except the fact that it overheats
sometimes but then I usually shutdown my
computer either by going to the start menu
and following the procedure of shutting down
the computer or I will put my computer on
standby or I will just directly press the power
button on my laptop and then it will be cooled
down and works fine). My problem is that on
Saturday I was using my laptop, running the
internet and some microsoft word documents.
Well I wanted to close some word documents
however they wouldn't close(usually if upon
closing a document or my internet browser
sometimes my computer will freeze and will
open a new window saying that ''this program
is not responding would you like to end now''
and I would press end now and then after a few
minutes the program(s) would close and
everything would work fine. However they
wouldn't close on Saturday and my windows
task manager wouldn't open when I tried(and it
alwayss works). So I put my computer in
stand by( the Word documents that could not
be closed were still open and my internet
browser was still open when I put my laptop
into standby). But...instead of going into
standby my computer's fans began making a
rushing sound like as if they were working too
much or overheating(sorry about the vocab I
am not very good at computers). So I decided
to shutdown my computer by holding down the
power button and the computer closed. Then
after 2 hours or so I press the power button to
restart my computer and I got the regular
windows xp loading screen buttttt then all I
see is a blank blue wallpaper without any
desktop items or start menu or anything! I only
have a blue blank wallpaper and my mouse
cursor. Please if anyone knows anything
please help me

P.S. If anyone knows a way to fix this problem
without having to reformat the whole
computer(because I have important files that I
can not afford to lose) that would be much
