Specs: Windows XP
Alright well yesterday after I got message that says that windows xp found a new update to install so I clicked ok for it to start. Well a few minutes later my screen went blue and said that the session was interrupted. After that I turned my computer off and when I turned it on again it loads the first part that says windows xp but then it goes to a black screen with a blinking _. What do i do?

See if it will allow you into Safe Mode.
Press the power button and start tapping the F8 Key. If it lets you in do a
System Restore to an earlier date.

I've never used a Boot CD or you can try a Repair Shop.

Reboot the pc and press and hold F8 just before the windows logo screen says loading. From the advanced windows menu, select last known good configuration.
