Welcome to Bleeping Computer callingallhelp!

Just to clarify your computer's symptoms, if you try to boot normally, you get the black screen and unsupported input dialog, if you keep pressing F8 for Safe Mode, you get a BIOS setup screen, is that correct? If so, you're not accidentally pressing F9 are you? Some systems use F9 for a minimal BIOS setup or boot order selection screen.
