Hey Everyone, I'm having trouble getting my computer to start up everytime I try to turn it on a black screen that says this will pop up:

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previous starup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or REset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode With Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent setting that worked)

Start Windows Normally

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
Seconds until windows starts: 0

Iv'e tried starting it up with all five options and none seem to let me get in!
Everytime I pick and option it seems like its going to start up but then another black screen pops up with a little white line at the top blinking and then goes back to the five choices. Can anyone please help me!?!! I would really appreciate it!! Thanks!

Have you made any recent changes to it, including hardware, software, etc?
