Keep pressing F8 before Windows logo and there will be an option to rset, but you need a recovery disk.

SOURCE: Windows Vista Start up problem, reboots automatically.

Boot to recovery console using XP CD, run CHKDSK /R and see if that resolves.
If no go, try a reinstall of windows, if still no go, then replace HDD

SOURCE: Toshiba A135-S4467 runs in safe mode but not normal (Vista)

Hi there,
The fact it starts in safe mode (which means it loads the basics for the pc to run and thats it) would indicate to me that there is something running in the backround at normal boot and also your cpu has a panic attack. Just wondering did this pc come with this version of windows or is it one you downloaded and installed yourself?? If its one you downloaded yourself (which it sounds like) get rid of it, because it is probs corrupted. Get another copy of it or to be quite honest I would get windows 7. Its better ,faster, and a lot less **** runs on it...The fact you changed your hard drive and still have the same problem it sounds like the copy of windows you have...Hope this helps...

SOURCE: dell latitude e4200 restarts with blue screen

Sounds like the image doesn't have the right drive controller driver included. Could be because the image was created on a different laptop or could be the drive controller is configured differently. You can confirm this from the STOP error code on the blue screen

Go into the BIOS setup (probably F2 at boot) and see if the controller mode is set to AHCI. If so, set it to compatibility or combined(?) and try again.

Either way, if you've installed an image for the wrong hardware, you probably should do a remedial install. Boot from your Windows XP disc and follow the prompts as if you were doing a clean install until you get to the license agreement. At the next screen, it should show you any existing Windows installs and give you a new option to repair. Let this go - it won't touch any user files, just replace all the Windows files with those from the CD. Have your system drivers and service packs handy to tidy up when it's done.

Hi .. i want to login to administrator in safe


If it can't start in safe mode, you've got bigger issues. You'll probably have to do an OS rebuild. First, try starting from a Windows install disk and go into the repair console. From there, run chkdsk on the reported hard drives. Then try booting into safe mode again. If it still won't, you'll have to do an OS rebuild repair.

I want to boot my pc to the safe mood but i cant i've used f8, f10, and dont know wat to do now.


In order to get into Windows safe mode, you need to begin pressing the F8 key repeatedly AS SOON as you see the BIOS/manufacturer name come up, WELL before you see the Windows splash screen. Basically as soon as it goes to 'black screen', begin hitting the F8 key and while it may take a couple of times, you should get there!
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

Dropped the laptop, now windows wont start, stays on windows logo screen.


Try running in safe mode.
If the computer was turned on while you were working then it is highly possible that hard disk might have crashed.
