Turning on my laptop I get sent to a black screen with white text with some type of long error message and it asks me if I want to start windows from the last known good configuration or just start it normally. I've seen this screen before and doing the last known good configuration always has worked. But now, choosing either options, windows will attempt to start up, and then it flashes some kind of error and returns back to the black screen with white text.

What can I do to fix this? It gives the option of booting in safe mode but I don't know what to do from there.

Some help or advice would greatly be appreciated.

Boot into safe mode...then Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm , using the 2d method suggested (don't try to edit the registry).

That should then enable you to read any error messages that appear quickly now.

Those messages are trying to tell you in what direction you should head...to overcome whatever is wrong. Once you get another, you need to post the content here.

Trying to boot in safe mode. But all that does is cause it to list a bunch of junk text, then attempt to load windows and then it ends up right back on the same screen. There are three options, safe mode, safe mode with networking and safe mode with command prompt. So far I'm unable to do what that link recommended.

Try each of the safe mode options listed, one of them may work.
