Mint 17.1 Rebecca(64-bit) freezes at starting

When I start my HP laptop, which is dual booted with Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17.1 "Rebecca"(64-bit) and choose to start Mint, the logo of Linux Mint appears and then it freezes and doesn't proceed. Windows 7 is working fine. It was perfectly working for last 2 months.
(My battery back-up is low and cannot give back-up for more than 25 minutes, just mentioned it as it may be associated with this problem).
NB: When I pressed escape while showing the Mint logo at starting, some underlying(?) processes were shown. I have attached a jpg image of that screen. Hope it helps.

You are using mint with systemd - see 3rd line of the screenshot.
Mint 17.1 doesn't use it.
