Windows 7: PC not starting D: Please Help!!

PC not starting D: Please Help!!

Hello there,
I am Ollie and have a windows 7 Sony Vaio (Thats all I know about it lol) I use it for hours day in and day out since I own my own blog ect so it keeps me busy in my own time. Last night it was getting very very slow so I decided to shut it down (through the start button, I didn't just press the switch) and then turn it back on however, now whenever I turn it on it just says 'Starting Windows' and it won't take me to my password page. I am extremely upset and shocked, I love that computer and an awaful lot of time and money has gone into it.

If anyone knows anything I would really love to hear it :) I don't want to go in and get it repaired for lots of money where someone like you could just have a simple suggestion that could help me out tons.
Many Thanks,

Thanks for your reply however, I know for sure its not due to viruses since I have Norton, its protecting me extremely well! Plus for the windows 7 advance boot link you gave me...I don't get the black screen with the white text options. I literally just see 'Starting Windows' it takes hours. I left it on all night and it hasn't moved, so obviously something is wrong :/

Starting out with VM
I'm new to VMs and want to start learning by using (safely). I'm thinking of VirtualBox or VMWARE for running UBUNTU and legacy DOS. Any recommendations would be welcome. Also thinking of installing on an external HDD to start with - is that possible?
