Possibly due to corrupted graphics driver, or resolution changed to one unsupported by your laptop. Try restarting in safe mode by tapping F8 key on boot and select "safe mode" press enter then enter again. If it gets to windows in safe mode log on as an administrator and go to "display" in control panel, select adapter and change the driver by rolling back to a previous version or simply uninstall, which is what i did! Then restart the computer, it should now boot to windows but the resolution will be naff, get on the internet find the latest driver from your laptop manufacturer download this to the desktop and install from there. Worked for me, hope it does the same for you.
