windows 7 stuck on Starting Windows

My laptop was working fine all day and then I shut it off when I left my girl friends house and drove home. Now when I start it up it is just stuck on Starting Windows screen no progress bar will pop up after the logo appears and the logo just pulsates.

After about 10 minutes the screen just goes all black and there is a cursor in the middle of the screen that I can't move.

When I went to start it up the first time I had this problem I had plugged in my webcam into the USB port before I started it... but since then I have unplugged it and tried to restart numerous times and no dice.

I also went into system recovery and did a restore to a previous known working date and that didn't work either.

This is really frustrating as I don't want to restore it back to factory.

I also can't boot in safe mode either... once it loads the last windows file nothing happens.

Please help! Thanks!

Two simple Steps:
1) Use Start up Repair tool

2) Check your BIOS and see if there is any update, recently there have been many released ,
as some Intel boards were suffering BSOD problems with Windows 7.
