windows startup recovery not working

Computer was working fine. All of a sudden started freezing up.
Shut it down. It wouldn't shut down after hours. Hard shut down and now
It won't start back up. Windows Startup Recovery runs and it goes to just
My background screen but nothing comes up. If you select to start
Windows normally it goes right back to the black screen and does the
Windows startup recovery again.
