When I turn on my computer it takes me to a gray screen declaring a failure to update windows successfully and just restarts repeats and routinly has become stuck in firsts level of computer hell.

Hi Leonard Fazio,
Have you tried going into Safe mode and the settings, control , uninstall programs - select show updates and then remove last update.
another way is to select system restore while in safe mode and restore to an earlier version depends on what o/s you have. Search for it in control panel or settings. While in Safe mode.

Mode safe start windows

In this case it would be best to perform a system restore.
There are two ways to perform system restore:
Open start menu click run and then type cmd to open command prompt.
Type CD.. to make c:\ only.
Type CD windows then CD System32 and then restore.
After once you find yourself in c:\ windows\system32\restore>
Then type restrui.exe press enter.
Once the system restore window open then click next to select any available restore point.
This process shall take couple of minutes to perform restore and please make sure that once this process started it wont be reversible and neither you will lose any personal data.
Other way to perform system restore is to open safe mode by clicking F8 on start-up and check safe mode option then further a dialogue box will open to ask for system restore and then follow the above steps. Thanks

Computer stuck pre boot screen

Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe with networking and hit enter. Once you are inside safe mode, then do a system restore.

Vaio stuck on vaio screen

Try booting to safe mode. Restart your computer or turn it off and turn it back on. While it's starting, tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. If you see that screen, then use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and press enter. If it goes in, then do a system restore by going to START > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Restore it to a known good date (the date when the issue was still not there).

If you cannot access safe mode, then you have a more serious problem. There are two possible reasons of that certain issue> 1. Operating System Failure which is easy to fix. 2. Hardware issue which needs the expertise of a technician. If you can't get into safe mode, then I suggest that you get the services of a technician.

I hope this helps!

My ingnition won't tunn and stearing wheel won't lock

When the key does not turn it means the tumblers inside the lock cylinder are stuck or jammed. Use penetrating fluid and spray it into the lock and insert the key numerous times. Also hitting the end of the key while it is in the cylinder will help to get the tumblers free. Use a rubber hammer for this.

when you restart it , just press f8 so you will be taken to a screen where the first option will be safe mode, select it and it will hopefully log you in.

Laptop is stuck in safe mode Acer

I faced the same problem with my laptop. I tried several methods. But none of them worked. But finally when I tied the following procedure it worked.

The following instructions work on a computer running Windows XPmag-glass_10x10.gif only, this is assuming that your laptop has XP installed on it. Use this only if your computer wont come out of safe mode by restarting it.

Go to Start > Run and type "msconfig" in the dialog box that comes up. Press Enter or OK and the System Configuration Utility box should come up. Click on the "BOOT.INI" tab. Down in the bottom left corner of the window under where it says Boot Options there will be several checkboxes. Make sure that the /SAFEBOOT box DOES NOT have a check in the box. When it is unchecked restart your computer and you should be out of safe mode.
