ndows 2000 / XP users

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - 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. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Tip

Cannot use my password to get back into Windows XP


Because of the security features built into Windows XP, it is virtually impossible to get back into the system without the password. You have several options to try and get around this problem.

If you have the access to another user account with administrator rights, you can use that account to change the password of the account that is locked out. You can also use the default Administrator account that is built into Windows XP.

First you need to boot the system into the Safe Mode.
1. Restart your system.
2. When you see the blue Dell globe or screen, press the ( F8 ) key about 3 times a second.
3. You should get the windows startup menu. Use the (up or down) arrow keys to highlight (SafeMode)
4. Press (Enter) on (SafeMode), then press (Enter) on (Windows XP).
5. The system should boot to Safe Mode.

Once you are at the Account Log on Screen, click on the icon for the user account with administrator rights, or click on the icon for the administrator account.
Note: For Home the Administrator account isn't normally shown & in Safe Mode you have to press Ctrl+ALt+Delete keys twice to show. For PRO you cando this in normal mode

When the system has booted to the desktop, use the following steps to change the accounts password.
1. Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative tools.
2. Click Computer Management.
3. Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder users.
4. Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
5. You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.
6. Leave the New Password box blank , also leave the Confirm Password box blank.
7. Click OK, and OK again.
8. Then close all Windows, reboot the system and try to log in.


There are also applications that can recover the password for you. The following companies provide these applications at a cost.
iOpus* Password Recovery XP here.
LostPassword.com, here
Asterisk Password Recovery XP v1.89 here.
Windows XP / 2000 / NT key here.


If the above information does not help in recovering the password, the only option left is to format the hard drive then reinstall Windows and system software.

Windows crashes because an very important program has been corrupted. The best way to fix that (since you have no idea which program) is to recover your files in Safe Mode then reinstall Windows - and make sure that the normal format option (not the fast one) is selected during process.

Windows is corrupted , Since you have no idea what software/malware caused that it will be extremely difficult to fix it blindly.
The best way then is to reinstall, Go into Safe Mode and recover all your files then boot from your recovery disk and during the install procedure, select the Full Format option.

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.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My acer t180 won't start up in normal mode i have just intalled the new norton onto it i have 1gb of ram but it starts in safemode....do i need more ram.....?


1. You may have to go into "safe mode" 1st and then start you pc in normal mode.
2. if you have a virus you may not be able to recover with the Norton anti virus.
3. There is a free software that you can try called "Ccleaner" this may restore you to the boot screen. A google search will find the site.
4. You may have to "format" the drive and reinstall your Operating System.
I hope this helps.

The screen comes up and says Windows was not shut down properly, and to start in Normal, safe mode, etc. to choose one of them. Nothing happens and it keeps trying to start. So once I hit f11 to recover,...


If you Click OK on the system restore, the system will be re-imaged from a hidden partition on the hard drive and will be restored to the way the system was when it came out of the box. Anything you saved or stored on the hard drive, (Pictures, files, games email, resume etc) will all be gone.

Because the system will not boot into the normal mode, it is assumed that the current Windows installation is at a minimum damaged. The damage could be caused by:
  1. Virus/spyware
  2. Hard drive failure
  3. various unkown issues
If you are wanting to save data off this hard drive, just power it off at the system restore screen.

If you can, run diagnostics on the hard drive (Dell has F12 at boot to access diagnostics) If the hard drive fails, your data recovery options are limited.

Data recovery is expensive, so you have to weigh the value of the data versus the cost of getting it back.
