When you start the computer do you hear any beeps different from what you usually hear.
Did you try pushing F8 right after the BIOS post and before windows starts to load and then choose to start in safe mode.
Also after you have pressed F8 you may want to first try loading the option last known good configuration.

The blinking cursor appears right after I swipe my fingerprint when I turn the system on.
Don't hear any beeps
When I push F8 it gives me only a couple of seconds to choose either F2 or F12. I have tried both, but cannot see a safe mode option nor the last known configuration option.

Can you get into your setup menu (BIOS) either your F2 or F12 key.
What are the option for each Key (F2 F12) setup menu, boot menu, recovery options ect.
On some computer pressing F8 before the BIOS post as finish takes you to the BOOT Order menu, unless on your computer it is the F12 or F2 key.
The F8 key is to access the Windows Advanced Options menu.
If for some reason your Hard drive is not accessible then the F8 option will not be available.
