Can you go into safe mode?
Tap F8 key as you are booting up and you will see a screen of options.
If you can get this far then you could try "Last know working Configuration" or if that does not work you could try system restore to an earlier date. Neither of this should cause you to loose any data.

When everything else fails, read the instructions.
