Hello xderekhx716, to choose the [least] likely {Mode} in order not to "Lose any Data," you want to choose; "Start Windows in Safe Mode." If an incident 'occur' before this 'window' [Popped-Up], then you want to "Start the Computer in {Safe Mode}. This 'way if you have been "Infected by a 'Virus' or any of the Computers Configurations have been 'changed,' or "Windows Shut Down 'Unexpectedly' than Safe Mode is the 'choice,' because the; least amount" of Operating Systems, applications will be deployed at "Startup," ie. Drivers, Programs... This will 'protect' the System' from further 'damage', if there was any? You will have the opportunity to analyze the situation safely. Next, if the Computer is having 'problems' starting, or the "Operating System is not 'responding' or there is "no change, than a "message" will identify the 'still' remaining problem; "Starting Normally." Then you want to 'choose,' start Windows at the "Last Known Good Configuration" also known as "System Restore." Finally, if this was just a "simple "Shut-down?" Than, "Starting Windows Normally" is OK! Follow all the instructions "carefully" in any of the "Modes" you may need to [Choose]. I hope this information is helpful? Thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9"

Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer.

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

with that problem may be your unit cannot shut down properly so as early as possible you must done with a proper shut downing of your unit.
so if that message will appear select on the "Last Known Good Configuration" and press enter, if this message will appear again you need to format your windows.
