We will need some more information
Age of the computer
Hard Drive Size, How much free space
In Addition please supply:
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started.
Any hardware installed\updated prior to problem starting.
All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

Click on "Recovery Console Instructions" in my sig, and follow the instructions to make a bootable disc that allows you to work with the recovery console.
Then click on "Repair Common Windows Problems" in my sig, and follow the steps there, using the CD you burned earlier.
That should make your system bootable again. Tell me what error code is on the blue and white screen you see.
