Try booting in Safe Mode
That will delete some system caches that may help. A Safe Mode boot takes a little longer then a normal boot so be patient.
Once you see the Desktop, go to the Apple menu top left in the screen. From the drop down menu click Restart.
If that didn't help, the startup disk may need repairing.

Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the page that opens.
Enter the name of the crashed process in the “Filter” text field. Post the messages from the time of the last crash, if any – the text, please, not a screenshot.
Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash logs related to the process. Select the most recent one and post the contents – again, not a screenshot. For privacy’s sake, I suggest you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
