What you're describing is a computer that starts up, but doesn't get to a desktop. If you have a bootable external hard drive, a system install DVD or a bootable flash drive, you can boot off one of those and get to an About This Mac screen from there. The operating system on the substitute drive has to be the same OS as the one that originally came with the computer, or later.
 
If your computer has a FireWire or Thunderbolt port, you can connect it to another Mac and boot it as a target drive. Target Drive mode lets another computer talk to your internal drive as if it was an external drive, or vice versa; you start the hard-drive-only computer up while holding down the T key, and its hard drive will appear on the other computer's desktop. If you boot your troubled Mac off some other Mac's drive, you'll still be able to get the model information for your own computer from About This Mac/System Profiler. You'll also be able to run Disk Utility on your internal hard drive, which will no longer be the boot drive; it may fix whatever issue is giving you the startup problem, or at least give you more information about the problem.
 
If your normal OS is 10.7/Lion or later, you should have a Recovery partition on your internal drive which will allow you to do some basic repairs. Start up the computer while holding down the Option key, and you'll get an icon for each bootable volume the computer can see. Your normal system will have the drive name you recognize, and the recovery partition will be named 'Recovery HD' or something like that. Select the Recovery partition and bootboot, then use Disk Utility to repair your main hard drive. You won't have access to hardware informationinformation from the Recovery partition, but you may be able to get your normal boot OS functional enough to get to a desktop.

Again, if you give us the last four characters of your serial number, we can look up the model information. You can also look it up yourself using [http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/|EveryMac's lookup function]; this requires the full serial number.
