laptop or desktop system? Try disconnecting the hard drive and see if you can get it to boot into BIOS.
Press ESC key as soon as you try to start up as this may get you behind the splashscreen to see the point in boot process that it hangs.

Find out the hard drive maker, goto their website and follow the instructions for making a diagnostic disk for their hard drive. Set the bios to boot off the cd first, then your hard drive. Boot to the diagnostic cd and do long hard drive diagnostic, if it passes you probably have a corrupt windows problem.

"the problem is with the desktop"

Is there some reason why you're not posting the model & model number?

"have recovery disk that just sit in the tray"

You have a hardware problem, not a software problem. Put the recovery disc away before you end up trashing the Windows installation. Have you made any hardware changes that may have brought this on? Did you cahnge anything inside the case? Add or change any external drives, keyboard, mouse, etc? If not, it could be your hard drive has failed. Were there any problems leading up to this?

Did the computer originally come with a PS/2 keyboard? If so, you may need to use it again to access the BIOS (setup) screens.

As riider suggests, remove the recovery disk for now. Try tapping F8 at start up. Try Last known good configuration or Safe Mode. You should also run a hard drive fitness test.

If you get into the setup screens disable fast boot and then see if the hard drive is being configured.
