Hi,

It is possible that your system boot was setup to safe mode everytime it boots up. You may try the steps below.

1. Boot your system to safe mode.

2. Go to Start then Run

3. On the run box type msconfig

4. Look for the tab boot.ini , under this tab uncheck the box that says safeboot then click apply

5. Restart the computer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

I cannot start my lap top A 105-s4074, the screen shows safe mode, reboot etc but nothing helps.


Power on the laptop and keep hitting F8 key. You should see bunch of options. Select the option that says something like "Go back to last known good configuration"

I have a HP Pavillion Lap top and forgot the pass word that goes with my user name


Restart your computer. When your computer is restarting spam the f8 key until it shows you a black screen with multiple options. One of those options will be "Safe Mode". Select this option and it should give you the option to login as administrator when it displays the user select screen. When you select administrator and it lets you in change your account password. Restart your computer again and login with the new password you set.

My lap top crashes all i get is a black screen, I don't have a disk to reinstall windows XP


When you power on the laptop, press the F8 key several times. A screen should come up asking you to choose an option.
Options should include safe mode and repair your computer. If repair your computer is an option, select that by using the arrow keys and press enter. This may fix your issue.

My hp mini 1000 wont boot up. when i turn it on it goes right to a screen that asks how i want to start up windows ( safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, and start windows...


hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

Lap top


When the Windows options show up pick - Disable automatic restart on system failure. This will stop and show you the error(s) causing it. Write all this info down and post to this discussion

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
