SOURCE: i had my laptop fixed 6 months ago and i was told

who ever fixed your laptop must has done some thing that has led you to this issue....it's just not possible that you wont have Safe Mode, it's one of the inbuilt safety system of Windows OS....press F8 to get into the option to go to Safe Mode or.....Normal mode of operation.....
You need to press F8 before the Windows screen appears...after you switch ON your laptop.

How do I get my computer of of safe mode


in safe mode, click the start button and then "run"

In the "run" window type: msconfig
and then hit enter or ok. You should now see a "system configuration" screen, at the top are several tabs and one should be labeled "Boot"

Near the bottom of the window should be several box's you can check or un-check, most likely your safe boot option is checked.

So un-check safe boot (don't think anything should have check marks in them) and then hit OK. Windows should then ask you if you want to restart.

Once restarted you should be in normal windows :)

I bought lenovo b3 series 3 days ago n not it doesn't start normally , i hv to start the pc in safe mode n then i can use it, why?


Safe Mode is for trouble shooting only. I would take it back immediately if it's new.

You should have never had to use the disc, being so new. Unless it was a floor model?

Since you can boot in safe mode, teh you should try using the SYSTEM RESTORE to take it back to the day the problem started, try that first.

#2 "safe mode with networking" will only work if you were attached to a local network and configured to boot from it. This is not the normal configuration for most users. The network they are referring to is NOT the internet.


You should try #1 and after it is booted try a restart [Start], [Shut down], then use the pull-down to select Restart. If once it

I got a pop up saying my computer was infected. I tried to restart my computer and it just comes to a black / blank screen. Can I save my files or will I have to reinstall windows.


Restart into safe mode either F8 or F12 depending on your computer just get to the safe mode feature, button when you restart keep pressing it until it loads. Once there go to run type in MSCONFIG click it then go to restore computer and go to a date earlier than a day or so ago and restore it. I hope this assisted you without the hassle of doing a full system restore. You can access through the back door which is SAFE MODE. Then you can go in and restore back to a earlier time. Or if you know where the problem came from get rid of the software as well you know that caused the problem. Be sure to dump cookies and history each day as well. John

Windows does not shutdown properly, asks me if i want to restart in safe mode?


It never hurts to start in safe mode. While in safe mode, some things will not be available to you. Be aware that there is a reason your computer is telling you to start in safe mode. Something happened, hardware or software related, that caused a problem. Windows allows you to start in safe mode to correct problems. Not knowing what the problem was, I might suggest starting in safe mode, then go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Try to restore your computer to a few days ago when it was working properly. Then restart, and hopefully it will work.
