    go to http://www.REPLACEWITHYOURSITE.com/wp-login.php

    This should take you to your login page. Remember to replace REPLACEWITHYOURSITE with your domain name.

    Before reinstalling, try switching to the default theme ("twentyten") for a moment by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes. The idea is to force WordPress to fall back to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific issue.

    If you don't have access to your admin area, then access your server via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    -If the above steps do not resolve the issue, Download WordPress again and replace your copies of everything EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies. This should replace your core files without changing your content and settings in wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory.
    Note that some uploaders may not overwrite files reliably, so delete the original files before replacing them.
