3 In Run dialog box, type the following text:
msconfig

4 Click OK.

5 In the System Configuration Utility, on the BOOT.INI tab, check /SAFEBOOT.

I don’t have an answer, but some questions…

In what step of the boot process does this error occur ?

What is the error message ? is it a windows-like message, or is it a ‘blue screen of death’ ?

Have you installed some new hardware recently or did you make any other changes to your pc ?

Have you tried to boot in safe mode ?

********
Try doing a system restore to a date it was working properly. You can boot to safe mode and run the system restore if it will allow you to boot to safe mode.
