Hi Eric, & Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

You might try two different Crash Recovery steps to see if they might correct the problem.

Turn your computer on, and just after the splash screen click several times on F8 (Advanced Boot Options)
There are several different choices.

First click on "Repair your Computer" (which is part of the windows recovery environment). See it that will find and repair the problem.

If not, go back to the same menu, and choose "Last Known Good Configuration". That will load system and OS settings that were present when you last booted your computer successfully.

Hopefully one of those Recovery choices will permit you to boot into windows.
