What command, posted where?

Boot into System Recovery Options on Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to try Startup Repair repeatedly, then manually run System Restore from DVD/CD Options list.

If these fail run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

You can access and copy your files to external using the DVD or Repair CD this way: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then if you cannot regain functionality using above methods, run full Factory Recovery from its partition or disks you made or order from your Tech Support, a Win7 backup image you should have made, or clean reinstall with retail DVD and the Product Key on your COA sticker if this is factory OEM: Reinstalling Windows 7
