Is it not booting in safe mode too? Why you got this problem may be helpful to tell us. Also what have you already tried? – avirk Jun 19 '12 at 13:54
More information please. – jmreicha Jun 19 '12 at 19:25

You will most likely need to have a recovery CD/DVD/USB Drive. I have also just being fed up at the recovery drive never working right, and just reinstalled Windows on top of the current one as it let me keep personal files. A side benefit is no malware and a faster bootspeed. There is also no bloatware.

Here is some advise from Microsoft Answers, good luck!
