Can you not borrow a disc off someone?
When you switch on keep the F8 key depressed - To go in to Safe mode.

Once there you can undo whatever you did before!
did anything unusual happen before this problem started or did you make any hardware changes or tweak / install anything software - wise? as prevoius post has said, the quickest thing to try first is to go to the boot menu (f8) and choose safe mode. that will usually allow you to get back to a working state.... (system restore to a last known working point).
thanksto everybody sorted now. Myusb keyboard was not working properly put a ps2 adaptor on it logged into safe mode and sorted it out thanks to everybody for the help
