I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!
Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as we call it at work anyways.
Dels are known for this.
let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.
Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?
You will need one.
What you do is,
1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,
2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.
3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.
4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Press " R" for repair.
It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.
5: Once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "
6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finish and go back to C:/
Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.
you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.
Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.
WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.
For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.
Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.
What you did was re-installed those windows files.
Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.
This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.
You can help others now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)
Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

well..that would be a new thing for me. I do not recall any F11 function that will do this. Perhaps he or she has more information on this..

That is the advanced boot options screen for your system. REpair your computer is not always available. See here. It sounds like your system may boot into safe mode, so why do you wish to restore to factory default? Why not boot into safe mode, then use Windows system restore to restore your system to a point prior to the update.
That should get you up and running, and you can troubleshoot the cause of the conflict from there, using the Event Viewer, SFC /scannow, chkdsk, etc.
The black screen could be the result of malware on the system. In that case, I recommend you follow these malware removal protocols.
Good luck. If you have more questions, please ask...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The Dell D630 does not have a factory restore partition on the hard drive. Your only option is to use the windows restore feature that is accessable off of the start button, all programs, accessories, system tools. Plan B would be to borrow an operating system disk that matches the Certificate sticker on the bottom of the laptop, and then download all needed drivers from the Dell Website.
