Windows 7: Windows will on start after hitting f8 and choosing option

Windows will on start after hitting f8 and choosing option

All of a sudden my Windows 7 computer will only start if I hit the f8 key and enter advanced boot options.
Then it will start by hitting start windows normally.
If I do not go into advanced boot options it just flashes black screen with white writing for a split second and loops back to splash screen.
I tried last known good configuration it will start but then when I restart same loop.
Repair my computer will not work when I use this option it loads files then ask if I am sure I want to exit and restart computer will not accept no for answer will only let you click yes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
