Most likely a virus has or malware has got into the system try SAFEMODE and install or do virus check if this does not work get someone to download one of the well known free virus checks and when you use as boot CD it will do virus check other options are more drastic like take hard drive out and do virus check with another computer of Format but try and save date before these options are attempted

How to get off safe mode


Step 1
Getting out of Safe Mode may be both easy and complicated at the same time. The primary consideration is the reason why the machine is booting into this status. If it was user initiated, the easiest way is to click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Turn Off Computer' option.
Step 2
This will bring up the window with the 'Standby', 'Turn Off', and 'Restart' options. Choose either 'Restart' or 'Turn Off'. Upon rebooting or powering up of the machine, the Operating System should automatically load into Normal Mode. Take note that some users are misled into believing that the system is in Safe Mode primarily due to the incorrect setting of the video. If the system is in Safe Mode, it should be stated at the corners of the screen.
Step 3
If the system keeps on rebooting on Safe Mode, this is a possible indication of a problem in loading startup components. Reboot the machine.
Step 4
During the reboot process, press the 'F8' key to display the boot-up options. In this window, select the 'Last Known Good Configuration' option. The Operating System will attempt to locate the last settings that successfully loaded the Operating System.
Step 5
If still unsuccessful, allow the machine to boot into Safe Mode. Click on the 'Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' option.
Step 6
Click on the 'Performance and Maintenance' category and click on the 'System' icon. This should open the System Properties window.
Step 7
Click on the 'Hardware' tab and click on the 'Device Manager' button. Check for any exclamation or question mark beside any entry. Reload the corresponding device driver for the erroneous component. Repeat Step 2; this should boot the system in Normal Mode.
Step 8
If the computer system entered Safe Mode via the System Configuration utility, then it can only boot in Normal Mode using the same tool. Click on the 'Start' button and choose 'All Programs'. Click on the 'System Tools' category and select the 'System Information' option.
Step 9
From the new window, click on the 'Tools' Menu and select 'System Configuration Utility'. Under the 'General' tab, select the 'Normal Startup' option.
Step 10
Click on the 'OK' button and restart the machine as described in Step 2. This will load the system in Normal Mode.

How do you fix the blue screen of death on a dell computer


Check if you can still go to the boot options once you start your PC.

How to go to boot options:
1. Restart computer
2. once computer is turning on, keep tapping F8 key
3. Boot options menu should now appear
4. use keyboard arrow to choose safe mode with networking or last good known configuration
If you are able to go to safe mode, it means that you might have installed a program or software that messed up your PC. uninstall the program then reboot and check if it will boot up normally
If safe mode did not work, use last good known configuration, this will attempt to load your computer on the last time it worked (previous days)

If the above solutions did not work, you can use the windows recovery cd that came with your computer. Here you can repair your computer using the fix and repair option

If all else fails, the only way to fix it would be to reformat the PC

Hope this helps

By enforcing the option to return BACK TO THE LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION you have nothing to lose. Respond if you have already selected that option with no success?

My lenovo keeps rebooting..when I select ''last known'' it shuts down and restarts the process again


Try to see if you can boot up the computer into safe mode. Keep pressing the F8 key as you turn on the computer and when it gets to the boot menu choose "Safe Mode".

If you can get into safe mode then go into the start menu and go into the system tools folder and then choose system restore. Choose a date on the calendar when the computer was last working properly and let the system reboot and hopefully that will take care of the issue.

If you can't get into safe mode or windows normally then that means windows is corrupted and you'll need to wipe out the drive completely and reinstall the OS and device drivers.

Your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders. Choose last known configuration to reverse to the most recent setting that...


Choose safe mode and see if you can get into it. If you can then go into system restore and choose the last date that you remember the computer working properly.

At this point the computer will restore the computer back to the earliest date that it was working properly.

Once you do this the computer will reboot and it should go back into windows normally and work just fine. If for some reason it doesn't then windows is corrupted and you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and restore the computer back to factory defaults.

dot.gif How to load last known good configuration. Question: How to load last known good configuration.
Additional information: The "Last Known Good Configuration" option was first introduced in Microsoft Windows 2000 and is available in all later versions of Windows including Windows XP. This feature enables a user to load the last working version of Microsoft Windows. This is a great step to try when trying to fix issues with a computer not being able to load into Windows.
Note: Users able to open normal Windows XP mode and who wish to restore their version of Windows to an date before the last known good configuration may also wish to consider doing a system recovery in Windows. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000589.
Answer: To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting 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 "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. 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.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
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.
