I found your other posts regarding this problem. I believe it may be that your monitor is failing. Do you have another monitor to try? Another clincher is to start the computer, do the login, and when the monitor goes dark, turn off it's power button, and turn it back on after waiting for 30 seconds or so. If the monitor lights and looks normal then goes back off, it's the monitor at fault.

How to reboot in safe mode


Typically when you turn your computer on you begin to tao the F8 key until you get a black screen with white letters offering you different options of which safe mode is one. You just use the arrow keys to move up and down until you hilight the one you want and hit enter. It will take a minute or two to get into safe mode. Once in you will have the words "Safe Mode in all 4 corners of the scareen. If you don't have that then you probably aren't in safe mode.
Good luck.
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4 and maybe a
"thanks" It will help me as well. Thank you.

Ibm thinkpad t30 how to get it to enter safe mode


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.

How do you put windows into safe mode?


Power on or Restart your computer, keep tapping F8 on the keyboard while it boots up. After few seconds, you'll be taken to the "Advanced Boot Options" with "Safe Mode" in the lists. Use the Up-Down arrow keys to highlight the "Safe Mode" and press enter on the keyboard to confirm the selected boot options. Black Screen with white texts will be displayed on the display, wait for few seconds until you see the windows logon Screen. You'll also see a confirmation message box asking you to confirm to boot into Safe Mode, click "yes" or "Ok" and proceed forward. There now you are in the Safe Mode.
