I would say Virus check as first thing. I hope you have created a Floppy Virus checker

If not try loading Windows over it's self

woodchip is right.

If everything recently worked OK and you have not altered/installed anything, suspect a virus.
If you can "restore" to a previous period when everything was OK. or reinstal Windows - do.
If you have never had the PC working, it could be a missing driver eg monitor or mouse, or something interfering with your mouse - And that's against the law, by-the-way.

I would have thought it was a graphics problem, can it be started in safemode?
