Question about Computers & Internet
Try booting the computer up in recovery mode... (need your installation cd, if you have one) from recovery mode you can run "chkdsk /p" to search for a damaged section on your hard drive that is keeping you from booting up. If you have damaged sections of your hardrive it could cause some data to have been damaged and not replaceable so hopefully you have backups...
Alternative could be reinstallation to fix the problem...

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity so you can view the manual later) and let it boot
up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this
normal. Check your Power Options in the Control Panel to set your Sleep
Mode and Hibernation up higher or set it to NEVER. Click Start/Control
Panel and look for Power Option (it might be under System and
is a link to your user manual. You want to go to Pages 77 and 78 where
it talks about changing the Power Plan. You want to select Change
Advanced Settings as it talks about on pages 78 and you will be allowed
to change the hibernate and sleep settings.
