    Try booting in Safe Mode. If it doesn't boot, you have a big problem.

    Hmmm... Big problem if safe mode dont work.

    This may sound odd but you could try setting your drive up as a slave in another machine an run scandisk on it. (Or HDD recovery)

    Its a long shot but might work. (Even gonna test it myself)

    Let us know how you get on.

    It may help us better to know if you are getting any sort of error, or even a black screen with a flashing cursor. If you want to try the scandisk method:

    Go here and get the software you need to make a boot floppy for ME.
    http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

    Boot off it, then at the prompt, type "scandisk /all"
