Have you tried selecting "Last known good configuration" from the Safe Mode menu?

Before going for a repair install you may try a couple of simple things:
1. Turn off and the unplug the PC and the monitor. Wait for about 30 sec and plug them and turn on PC.
2. If it didn't help turn off and the unplug the PC and the monitor. remove the case, make sure you ground yourself to avoid static shock to the sensitive parts. Then remove the RAM kits , plug the PC, then unplug and place the RAM kits. Plug the PC and the monitor and turn on them.
3. I don't know if your system has this one. If the step 2 did not worked turn off and unplug the PC and the monitor. Search for a coin battery, remove it place it upside down and wait for about 10 sec. It should reset your BIOS to original set up. Place the battery back into its original state. Then plug the PC and the monitor and turn on. If it worked you the PC boots but you have to rest the date and the time and eventually the other changes you have made before in your BIOS set up like the order of the boot (setting the controller to read hard drive first or CD-ROM drive first, or if you have turned off any on board devices).

Try running chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console.

If chkdsk is showing errors then it may be time to replace your hard drive. If you go to the website of the drive manufacturer you should be able to download a diagnostic tool to test the drive.

They should have an .iso file for download which will create a boot disk; therefore, you can still use it even if Windows won't boot.
What make is your hard drive?
