You can boot in safe mode and open "MSCONFIG" via the RUN option on the start menu. If it not on the start menu look all programs> accessories> run. in the RUN Box Type msconfig and enter. That will open System Configuration, you will see options under General, you want the TOP one NORMAL startup, next click on BOOT tab and look for the Safe boot option,MAKE SURE IT IS NOT CHECKED. llet me know what happens or you need further assistance. max

SOURCE: cant get into safe mode. tried toggling f8/f7 together but nothing

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.  
Good Luck!

Can not get computer to startup in safe mode even when I hit F8, I can go into setup with F2 and F12, but not boot in safe mode.

The approved method for accessing the advanced options menu of Windows is to tap the F8 key rapidly and continuously starting immediately after the initial POST screen fades. That works much better than merely pressing and holding it.

How can i start advent 7110 in safe mode. everywhere says to use f8 on start up, but there isnt an option to use f8

The option isn't explicit - it's hidden as it's a standard windows procedure. You need to keep pressing f8 as the system boots up and you will eventually get a window that presents you with a list of options. One of these options is to boot into Safe Mode.

When i turn on my computer a black screen pops up saying enter current password._ Unable to use f2 or f12 What am I supposeed to do


You could try to start up in safe mode ( quite often f8 ) sign in as administrator and cancel the password

Also if you get into safe mode try a system restore back to when it was ok

Or hit delete key a few times when starting up hopefully this will take you into the bios because the f12 or f2 key may be disabled

Be very careful what you change in your bios because on a laptop its not very easy to change jumpers on bios battery so only enable the f2 or f12 then hit save and exit windows will then restart

But be very very carefull not to play around in the bios if you dont understand it you may end up with BIG BIG Problems

I have a major virus on my Advent 4211-B, it will not even start up properly, it just keeps repeating the same re-booting progress.

Restart your computer and keep pressing F8 and choose safe mode with networking as option,once you enter safe mode
download malware antibytes Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

and scan your pc and if you cannot enter into safe mode ,then you will need system restore cd and boot your computer from that cd and then restore it to previous date

Can you boot into Safe Mode? Restart your computer. Count to three. Rapidly tap the F8 key on the keyboard. Choose Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. If you dont see any of these options, chances are the hard drive in the laptop is dead or dying.
