Manually shut down, then start but tap F8 repeatedly to get into advanced boot options. Try selecting 'Last Good Configuration".
If that does not work, boot to Windows 7 Repair Disk and select 'Start Up Repair'. If this does not work, begin a System Restore from the Repair Disk. You should have made the Repair Disk when the machine was new. If you did not, you can still make one from another Windows 7 machine as long as both are either 32bt or 64bit (made in back up section).
If these do not work, make a bootable CD with Memtest on it and boot to it to test your memory, let it run all tests. No errors are acceptable. If all tests are good, your memory is good and the basic functions of the system work. Then make a bootable CD with your hard drive manufacture's test utility (Seatools from Seagate should work on all conventional hard drives) and run the short test to test the integrity of the drive.
Report back all results for more advice as well as any messages for any that do not work.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sounds like a hard drive issue to me.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!
