Dell Inspiron won't turn on beyond "starting Windows" screen

  1. So I have a two years old Dell Inspiron 1564 which has been giving me a lot of trouble. It has however, never been this bad. I turned it off after it kept freezing and lagging and then it wouldn't turn back on. It got to the starting windows screen, had a flash of a blue screen and tried again. I tried to launch startup repair, but it won't do this either. It just shows me the cursor and the blue windows screen. I can move the cursor but that's it. F12 and F2 are not working either. It is kind of urgent so I hope someone can give me some advice here...

    Thanks :)
