Question about Computers & Internet
There are a myriad of problems that could have resulted in this.
1. A virus has shut down your system
2. Memory has gone bad
3. Last software you installed has corrupted the hard drive
1. When it is coming up – hit F8 (over and over again) till the menu comes up :
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
See if you can get in safe mode. IF NOT – repeat these steps, and instead of clicking on Safe Mode – Click on “Last Known Good Configuration”
IF THAT does not work:
Insert your recovery CD and see if you can boot up to that.
If THAT still does not work, you have a hardware problem, either memory chips (RAM) or your Hard Drive.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.
Do one of the following:
If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press ENTER. For more information about options, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights.
Depending on you operating system i.e. windows XP, 7 etc. you may not have a "lock" button described in STEP 1, just restart while holding down F8, once you are in safe mode you can go in to Administrator or any other account and reset your password
