boot to safemode (tap F8 while booting) and run system restore back to a point before the problem began.

Try a repair install which does not format so you don't loose your data.

Follow the instructions in Strawballs link exactly failure to do so could cause a reinstall rather than a repair.

Try leaving the password blank if you haven't set one.
