Windows 7 won't load- screen flickers on and off

I have an HP Touch Smart and everything was ok until this morning. When the computer gets to the blue Windows 7 screen it just flickers and never loads. Tried it in safe mode and it does same thing but the flicker is much slower. Help! Thanks!

Hope this works for you,
Now I am backing up everything!! I was a little lax in that.
