By "restart" do you mean a re-installing the operating system? Your laptop should have come with something called "Recovery Discs". Try using this to repair your installation of Windows. If it doesn't work, you might have to reinstall it.

What happens you try to enter regular boot?

You may also try to press "f8" just before Windows start up and try to restore Windows to an older point. It worked another day when I was trying to fix a Windows Vista installed on a Sony Waio.
