I had the same sort of problem a while ago. There is an easy fix and a harder fix. The easy fix is to take the drive somewhere and see if they can recover your data then wipe it and re install. The hard fix involves using the recovery console to re-write the files that are used when the computer is booting thus getting it to a point where you can use system restore. You may also want to look online to see if you can find a boot disk that you can download and burn, then boot from cd. This might get you far enough that you can use system restore. I have a URL for the harder fix on my home computer if you want to try that.
