Switch on your PC and hold down F8 until the Advanced Startup Options appears.

Select "Last known good configuration" and press <Enter>.

If that doesn't work and you have recently installed a driver or an application just before the problem started, start Windows in Safe Mode from the Advanced Startup Options (F8, as above).
Then uninstall whatever driver or application you installed just before the problem started.
Then restart Windows.
