Hello jmhughes123...

When you try to start the machine, start tapping the F8 key after the system beep (or after the first splash screen if you don't have a system speaker) to access the Advanced Boot Options screen. Once on that screen, use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration", then press "Enter".

Does using this option allow the machine to start correctly?
