Default Problem with restarting my computer.

I just built a computer, windows installs perfectly. Yet when I am required to start my PC to finish the installation files of windows updates, the computer freezes at windows XP logo screen. My motherboard drivers install fine after rebooting the PC. It just when I try to reboot for the updates from microsoft the computer freezes.

eVGA e-GeForce 7800 GT PCI Express 256MB DDR3

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Processor (Venice)

Liteon SOHW-1693S 16X DVD Dual Drive

umm why would I want to boot in safe mode? I can boot from last known good configuration, but I am guessing that it does not complete the installation of the windows updates. I was told by a friend that I needed to update the bios?
