Hold down F8 as soon as you turn on the PC. You should get an advanced startup menu. If available choose "Last known good configuration". If that doesn't work, restart with F8 again, this time choose "Safe Mode" or "Safe mode with networking". At the login screen, choose your account. Save all your documents to some other media. Now do a full recovery if compaq supplied you with recovery discs or whatever recovery method you have.

You don't by any chance have anything connected USB that can be unplugged, do you? I once had a compaq, and if my wife left her iPod plugged in during a restart, it would either not get past the BIOS screen or if it did, it would run at about 1% of its usual pace.

Eventually, we wised up and got rid of both the Compaq and the iPod.
