Stuck on loading screen and won't go to main

Specs: Macintosh
So every now and then my computer would suggest to update software or something, but I aways clicked the "not now" button. and then a few days ago i decided to push it and I saw how long it was taking so I accidentally turned it off not knowing the consequences I would receive. Now when I turn on my computer it goes straight to the apple loading screen and stays there for hours and never goes to the main screen. I have the installer dick that came with it and I checked my hard drive and it said that its fine. I just don't know what else I can do to get it to the main screen again. I'm trying to avoid going to the store to get it fixed because I know they would charge me so much. Please help me ASAP. I have summer school and I need my computer that has all my work on it... thanks.

Try pressing Command Option P R and hold those four keys when you turn the computer on and keep holding it until it automaticaly restarts.

Otherwise boot from the OS X disk and reinstall OS X over your existing installation. DO NOT FORMAT THE DRIVE!
