Hi there and welcome

What exactly happens when you try to start the computer normally?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
When i attemp to start my laptop the screen that shows options to start in different modes appear. I can start the computer in any of the safe modes but the desktop is overcrowded. I can access the enternet and read email but the printer does not operate. Any attempts to start in the normal mode results in the screen without icons just blinking continously. This all started on 9/4/2015 when I allow the computer to receive an upgrade. When I look at my upgrade download for that day I see upgrade on BIOS, C++ etc.
