Try hitting F8 during startup and choose last known good configuration. Or you could try starting in safe mode and doing a system restore. Have you made any changes to the system prior to this problem, as sometimes installing programs/drivers can cause similar issues.

If this is under warranty take it back. If it isn't power the unit on with just the battery powering the unit. When you see the Windows splash screen drop the battery out after the screen goes black put the battery back in and press the power button. This should bring up the on screen menu telling you it failed to start or shut down correctly. Select, Boot in Safe Mode and see if the system will power on. If that fails you need to do a system restore. To access system restore options power the unit on and press and hold the F10 key, this will bring up the restore Windows options. From that menu select to restore your operating system. If that fails you will have to do a complete restore to factory default settings. If that fails you will have to replace the hard drive.
The machine won't scan unless both cartridges are installed and have a good supply fof ink in them. I know the ink level has nothing to do with the scanning procedure, but Brother has them coded to where they will not work unless both cartridges are present and full of ink. Replace the cartridge and it should scan just fine.
