This is a too vague question, mainly a "help me" request. Ask Fedora is targeted at simple concrete questions, it won't help you in this case. Please ask people on an IRC chat or in an email conference to solve your problem step by step.

You can try Ctrl+Alt+F2 to see if what is wrong is the Graphical User interfase. If you get a propmt for user, then it is the Graphical User Interfase. If not, then you can try hitting F11 or ESC keys so you see the system comments and where it hangs. Once I have a problem with a Hard Drive, and it only showed the logo of booting. Pressing F11 showme that it has and input/output error on the hard drive and that why it hanged there. Not sure if that is your case, but you need to get more info to help people help you.
