Can you boot into safe mode? http://www.computerh...sues/chsafe.htm
What happened before this problem started happening? Was anything installed or drivers updated?

if you can boot into safe mode use system restore...go back to date BEFORE the 14th of this month...thats when the windows updates came out ...
7 of them and you may have had some issues with one or more of the updates...
