When i turn my computer on it repeatedly shows the same screen over and over again. Start windows normally, last known good configuration, safe mode, safe mode with networking, and safe mode with command prompt. None of these selections work and I am wondering what I need to do to get it to work again.

1st time-As soon as you start computer keep mashing as fast as you can (not hold down but constant presses) till you get to advanced boot option screen. There are options to choose from.
You will have to use your arrow keys and enter key (no mouse)
First use the safe mode option.(this is in case you are fighting a virus)
turn off repeat the start with f8 key presses till it gives you the advanced boot option screen again. choose last good configuration option. If it lets you it will take a bit of time to restore do not interrupt it while it is fixing its self.
Here is a picture of what the option screen should look like. Here How to Access the Advanced Boot Options in Windows

Dear Joanne, it means that your update is not either downloaded correctly or there might be some problem with your windows.
1. Restart your computer mate and before the windows screen appears start pressing F8 key. 2. It shall show you a list of different options in which you can boot to windows o/s. 3. First choose LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION option from the list and then press enter. Give a try there. If everything works fine, its good. You shall have to update again. 4. If it doesn't solve the problem then repeat the above mentioned step and this time go for Safe Mode. Once logging in the Safe Mode, Restore your computer to an earlier restore point and it shall definitely solve your problem.
In both cases you shall have to update your computer again.
Hi. Try to select Disable automatic restart of system failure then press enter key. If same issue will occur, try to boot your computer from safe mode and restore the computer back to date where you remember computer is working fine. Here's the procedure for safe mode.
Turn on the computer
Keep on tapping F8 key
Select Safe mode
Once you are inside windows safe mode, click start
Click all programs
Click System tools
Click system restore
Choose a restore date
Let the computer finished the restoration
start the computer and when the computers splash screen shows (dell) etc. tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see the multiple startup choices. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" and select it, you will see the operating system listed as the target operating system, click that (hit enter) start in safe mode. When it boots do you see the screen with no problem? if so then the resolution may be wrong on the normal start up. On the dektop in a clear area free of icons, right click and scroll down to properties, click on settings, then move the resolution slider to either 800 X600 or 1028 X 768. click on yes to change the settings, restart the computer by hitting start > Turn off computer > restart. Reboot it normal mode (just let it boot as you would normally) If you can see the screen, you are all set, if not there is another issue to deal with.
When turning on the computer keep pressing F8
Select boot into safe mode
Then in safe mode click start then run then type in MSCONFIG
Click on Launch System restore.
Restore your computer to the day beforeyour problem started.
In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions
Try pressing F8 as your machine gets ready to start windows. Keep tapping it until you get a menu. You can try "most recent settings that worked" or failing that try starting Windows in safe mode. If it will start in safe mode regress it to a point before your failed download using System Restore. If it won't start at all, you may need to reinstall Windows.
