Black screen and pointer at start up

I have a Dell Dimension running Windows Vista and it won't boot up properly. Windows tries to start but I end up with a black screen and the pointer but nothing else.
I've tried the Windows DVD that came with the PC but "Startup repair" doesn't work and "System Restore" fails.
I don't want to reinstall Vista as I'm afraid it will wipe the data on the HD and my last backup was some months ago.
Can anyone help please?
