Startup repair loop cannot get into safe mode

I have a dell 9300 its older (2005) but has worked fine until yesterday. Nothing new added to it. Running windows 7. Dont have disc. Anyway my wife turned it on, it went to startup repair and restarts itself periodically. I have tried to use F8 on startup but it will not do anything just returns to Startup checking for problems then restarts again after a few minutes.

How did you install Windows 7?
Did you use a disc, thumb drive ect?
Where did you get Windows 7 from?

Is your system restored?
Can you boot into your computer?

in the loop there is a point where is says it will restart the computer in ... seconds
there is a place to click to "see" repairs.
Those are the messages

and no it is still looping and i cannot do anything except F2 and F12
F8 will not work
