How can I get my computer to boot up?

So, I shut down my desktop and went away for a weekend. When I came back, I went to turn it on, but my computer won't go past the blue startup screen (pictured here ).
I have tried pressing ESC for the Boot Menu, but all I get is a little line that reads "Loading Boot Menu..." Nothing actually loads. The same with F10 for Setup. F9 and F11 do not respond to me at all.
If it's something I can fix myself, I'd really like to do that and save myself the money of taking it to a repair shop, but I'm also only comfortable with the software/operation side of computers. Dealing with the hardware scares me, honestly, because I am terrified that I will do something wrong and end up completely ruining a perfectly good (just in need of service) computer.
