Another thought...do you have a "system restore" option on that computer which will re install your default system files?
You might lose some after installed programs but at least the laptop will boot correctly when restored.
Another thought: go into the bios on attempted boot (see directions on screen) then change the boot sequence in the bios so you can boot first from either a cd with system files or an "a drive"...if your laptop doesn't have an a drive you can get a drive which you can plug into the usb...then put a "system boot disk", which you hopefully have into the a drive and have the bios boot from the a drive first. Once it boots up, you can get in safe mode and find out what the heck went wrong.
