Black screen with cursor at start up

HI I HAVE A DELL INSPIRON 640M LAPTOP RUNNING WIN 7 ULTIMATE.
ALL of a sudden when I turned it on it boots to the dell logo then goes black with cursor
I put in the win 7 disc and tired to do a start up repair and restore to no luck
it states no restore points on this computer and start up repair does nothing
I have looked at several threads and can not find any solutions that works. this laptop was working find a week ago
I had not used it since then

any ideas what I can try before I do a clean install and lose all my files?
