My pc was acting up so I did the msconfig-diagnostic startup... to see if maybe it was one of my startup applications but now I am trying to get it back to a normal bootup. I make the change for a normal boot but it restarts and I get a diagnostic startup. I've done it over and over and cant get it back. I haven't added or made any changes. Does anyone know how I can get my computer to bootup normally.

That could be a symptom of a malware infection. Using MSConfig to access (force) safe mode can be problematic when there is malware on your system and can make your computer unusable. Some types of malware can delete or alter the safeboot key in the registry resulting in the inability to reboot into safe mode. If you use the /Safeboot option on the Boot.ini Tab to force safe mode when booting into safe mode when the F8 key does not work, it could have disastrous results. The Safeboot option modifies the Boot.ini file and you may be locked in a continuous reboot loop afterwards where you cannot get back to MSConfig and undo your selection.

Try using System Restore from a command prompt in "Safe Mode" to return to a previous state before your problems began?

I restarted into safe mode but on the login screen....its not taking my password. I can't even log on into safe mode. I restart back to a normal boot and there it takes my log information but NOT in safe mode.
