Laptops should return to normal mode upon subsequent start-up. If it does not, when you (re)start your computer, begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly (like a woodpecker). After a few moments, this will bring up a manual start screen (white letters on a black background)-you will see an option to Start Using Windows Normally down toward the bottom of the screen. Using your arrow keys, scroll down to that choice and hit ENTER. Your PC will then boot up in regular mode.
Try this. Reboot & tap the "F8" key while starting up so that it boots into the safe mode. Once in the safe mode, do a system restore. You did not give enough details to give you exact step by step instructions.
Turn the computer off
Turn the computer on
Immediately hit F8 several times a second until a black and white menu appears, if you get the windows splash, you missed it. Start over
Select which way you want windows to start in safe mode
You will get a lot of white messages on a black screen
You will then get a message that says proceed to safe mode or do a system restore to recover
Proceed to safe mode.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs up as I do this for fun.
Power on the machine and keep tapping the F8 key on the keyboard, after a few seconds, you'll see the "Advanced Boot Options" screen, black screen with white texts, the first from the list should be "Safe Mode...." if not, use the up and down arrow on the keyboard and highlight the Safe Mode and press Enter. You'll be taken to the Safe Mode and also you see another warning message stating if you are sure to boot into safe mode or not, click yes and proceed forward. There you are in the safe mode.
Start it in safe mode by shutting it off and starting it up, and continuously tap the F8 button. When it prompts you with a black screen with white letters click on "safe mode". Then you should be able to restore it
the key to getting into safe mode....tapping F8 (only that key) super fast, not stopping until you hear a beep...and see the option to boot into safe mode. The most common reason that it will not work is that it is not pressed fast enough or early enough. You will know that you missed your chance if you see the windows loading screen......start pressing it right away when you restart your computer and don't stop pressing F8 until you see the black screen with the white letters giving you the option to boot into safe mode.
You can also force the system into safe mode. You click on startup and type in msconfig. Click the general tab and select diags and the system will reboot to safe mode. Change it back to normal to get your system out of safe mode.
Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>
If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
Blue screens are normally critical errors. If you have loaded any new hardware to your computer lately or some software packages you will need to uninstall them.
Try starting windows in safe mode by pressing F8 continuoulsy until you hear a beep. This will start the computer in safe mode and everything will look big on the screen, ignore that for now. While you are in safe mode uninstall anything that you have loaded prior to this error. Be it software or hardware.
If you have not loaded anything recently then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when you know that it was working with now problems.
Once safe mode boots go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was running okay. Once the restore has taken place the computer will reboot. If asked what mode you want to start in choose start windows normally.
Hopefully this will help you resolve your problem.
