Question about PC Laptops
My laptop freezes up with a black screen and when I restert it, i get the three options of a normal start up, safe mode, or safe mode networking. I have picked each of the three options and I am returned to the options screen with no change. I reload Windows XP and the computer operates fine. A few days later, the black screen re-appears and I repeat the reloading of the operating system and again the computer operates fine. Does this sound like a hard drive failure or something else.
2 questions do you press one of the function keys if you do it will do that and if you dont it is because of an so called "improper shutdown". what you want to do is simply move the arrow keys left or right brfore the menu. if that does not work press first safe mode wate along time and after just do start windows normly and wate along time

Just before the Windows 7 splash screen (black with windows logo) appears, press the F8 key to enterAdvanced Boot Options.
You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen. If not, you may have missed the short window of opportunity to press F8 in the previous step and Windows 7 is probably now continuing to boot normally assuming it's able to. If this is the case, just restart your computer and try pressing F8 again.
Here you are presented with three variations of Windows 7 Safe Mode you may enter:
