Did you completely turn it off and try it again?  That would be the first thing to try.

Well the good thing is that doesn't sounds like a hardware issue.

 

How long will it sit on that 'windows starting' message if you leave it alone?

Okay.  Have you changed, installed, added, removed anything from your computer lately?  Any windows updates run?
