Explorer crashed, restarted computer, cant run system repait

last night I was doing reserach for a school project. I went to windows explorer and it went all white, saying it was not responding. I powered of then powered back on my computer, and it reccomended that I run system repair. I tried to run it, but it gets to the screen and just shoes a cursor and a black background. I let it sit overnight thinking it would take a while, I woke up and it hadn't changed. I tried running Windows normally but it just gets to the starting Windows screen and wuts there. What do I do?

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

Ø Power down your computer.
Ø Power up your computer.
Ø When the Windows Boot Manager screen appears,
Press the F8 key
Ø The Advanced Boot Options screen will appear.
