Windows 2000 system won't boot past "starting up" screen

Today, my Windows 2000 system won't boot up. When I try to boot in standard mode, I get past the blue, Dell "world" screen to the "Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" screen, but only about 75% of the "Starting up" bar gets filled up before it sits...and sits...and sits.

When I try to boot up in Safe Mode, I only get to the "Starting Windows..." screen, with the white dashed line at the bottom that fills from left to right being all filled in...but then it sits and sits and sits.

So, I can't even get to a point where I can run any diagnostics.

Help, please!
