When you try and start the computer are any files referenced or does it go straight to start up repair ?

Reboot the computer and immediately press and hold F8
On the menu that appears select
Disable automatic reboot
Reboot the computer and we should get a blue screen with a stop code and maybe a file reference note that down for me please
Also is safe mode available (on the same menu)

At the prompt type the following command followed by enter :
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows
This will take a while as windows will attempt to repair/replace files
