Hi,

You don't mention if you can get into Safe Mode or not....If not then likely you will need to do a reinstall of XP. If that is the case then you probably want to do a "Re-install in Place" so you don't lose all your settings and such.

If you can get into Safe Mode, then I would start with a re-install of the video driver, as they tend to be the most problematic if they have become corrupted for some reason.

In device manager, under Display adapters, highlight the adapter shown and delete it. Reboot your PC and windows "should" reinstall your video driver, or at-least the standard VGA driver that XP defaults to in such cases.

Another option to look at is within the Boot Menu, select "Last Known Good Configuration that worked"....and see if that will correct your problem.

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.


Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

User mode window (for adjusting the contrast, brightness etc) appears again again automatically.


First off... I would Re-Start your computer...OR...Shut down manually... to see if this fixes your problem. It's possible your computer didn't accept the changed setting? But...what you are experiencing is a Corrupt File, which will need to be removed!

Not sure exactly what you did? Where you trying to adjust the contrast, brightness, etc,.?

If you went through your Desktop to adjust these settings, always make sure you select APPLY and OK..

If you went through your System to Change your Resloution, you may have a Conflict with your chipset or even Malfunctioned it?

If re-starting your computer didn't fix your problem, than shut your computer down again!

Upon,..Re-booting...This time hold the Control Key down, so you can get into SAFE MODE!

I would then do a SYSTEM RESTORE under (SAFE MODE) and Restore your computer back to an earlier period that your computer was working correctly! Even, if you cleared the problem on the first step provided! Just type in the search box in your Control Panel System Restore! Or you can type in at the START Button...System Restore!

Also, while in SAFE Mode...go to your Device Drivers in your Device Manager and check for any setting that have a yellow symbol next to them...Click on each one and Update the Drivers!

Always, make sure...you Re-Start your computer after doing any changes...!

If you need further assistance, please don't hesistate to reply back to me! I'll be happy to help you!

Kind Regards!

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

Virus attack is a possible cause.
Always make sure that your antivirus is updated regularly. And your Windows updates are on. This increases security of your system.
Try booting in safe mode and run antivirus.
Steps to boot in Safe Mode:
  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

Then scan your system for viruses through your antivirus.
If this doesn't work then, select Safe Mode with Networking as an option and access internet and update your Antivirus first then, scan your system.
If you have problems in updating your antivirus, please use following link to scan your system, Make sure you are in Safe Mode with Networking while you perform this step.
wish you all the best :)

New builded pc wont install, system is schut down.


Hi Henrick,
Are you using the correct spec R.A.M.? or is it faulty.
I relate to your problem and all looks fine apart from memory.
Don't rule out the possibility of a Mother Board fault? I have had similar& severe grief in the past, tried all routes and replaced loads only to find sata circuit connection dry joint/ un soldered. (So New Motherboard under warranty)
Good Luck!

Safe mode business


safe mode automatically comes up when you didn't shut down properly. Just select boot as normal or last known good configuration then you are good to go.

uninstall any new hardware or software you have recently installed to cause the problem in the first place. If you haven't installed anything then windows should just start normally.

good luck
