Solved!

My Windows 7 HP Desktop won't go past welcome screen

4CE1221CX2 Hewlett-Packard
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, when I got home, I went to start my desktop up and it won't go past the welcome screen. I've had this desktop since 2011, and I'd love to get back on it because I have an important file on the PC that needs to be saved if I end up retarting the PC back to factory.
