Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Make sure you don't have a disk in the cd drive and remove any usb devices and external memory cards and try to restart and post back details.

What you are seeing here is the failure of Windows (we all assume you are using Windows) to start. This can be a result of several factors.
The most common of these factors is, some critical files needed by Windows to start have been lost. This can occur if there is damage to the "sector" on the hard drive that holds these files. It's sort of like, if you have ten rooms in your house, and a water pipe breaks in the kitchen. That room may then be unusable until it is repaired. Additionally, if your favorite book was in there, it was soaked by the water and it is no good either. If your plan for the day was to read that book, your day is shot.
However, it could also be that the hard drive itself has become corrupt and the entire device would need replacing.
Additionally, memory can sometimes cause this error, if a chip or two on the memory module goes bad. Almost an identical example to the kitchen previously mentioned, the difference would be that you are trying to put stuff in the wet kitchen, not take stuff out.
When your computer starts, it first does a scan of the critical hardware, and this is not a deep scan. If it finds everything, it allows Windows to start. When Windows starts, it not only scans those things that are supposed to work, it loads the software necessary to make those things work (software is a set of intructions that tells the computer how to behave).
From your description, Windows is starting, and then it gets stuck. While the previous hardware misfortunes are correct, they are by no means complete. In my years, I have seen this problem occur because a modem was bad, a nic was bad, and even because a cooling fan did not start properly.
This fix could be as easy as reinstalling Windows, or as complex as replacing most of the hardware inside the machine.
Has anything occurred that might start this? Example would be, did anyone drop the computer? Was anything spilt on the computer? Was anything downloaded or upgraded the last time the computer was working?
