How to get to safe modem?

Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows, you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.

To get into the Windows 2000 and XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use yourarrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode- 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

upon restarting, you can go to boot selection menu by pressing function keys (hp/compaq enters most likely F2, F10 or F11) you may try it one by one.

Cant log on.

To be honest, there are quite a few things it could be. Most likely you will have to do a full re-install if you have the disc. It sounds like the system files are corrupted.

If your not too tech savvy, then you'll want to go to a local computer shop to have them retrieve the data from your hard drive. And they would also be able to do a full install.

If you are pretty savvy, you could get a hold of a 2.5" external HDD housing.
Take the drive from your laptop and put it in the housing.
Then connect the housing (now considered an external USB drive) to another computer and browse for your files to back them up.
After that, do a full install with your original disk from Compaq.
If you dont have it, you may have to do a little hunting for W2k and the drivers for your laptop.

If it does it again, then you have a hardware problem.

Let me know if any of this helps.

What operating system do you have and what exactly does the screen say?

Compaq armada e500 boot up

Try tapping the F5 or F8 key (could be either one) right after you power up. This should take you to a short text message with a couple of choices to continue; you'll find the Safe Mode option there which will prevent the continuation of the unsuccessful boot routine. If you can reach the Safe Mode, run Restore and go back to an earlier point in time, you may have to go back several times because if you have picked up some kind of malware, it may have been backed up with everything else.  Unless it is a really smart bug, you might be able to circumvent it.

Memory overload

Greetings mh5591,

What this means is there currently is not enough hard drive on the unit to boot up windows. If there's not enough free space on your hard drive, Windows won't open. Try accessing through Safe Mode and see if you can create the necessary room. Boot the system, start tapping F8, when the menu appears, select
Safe Mode and press enter.

I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
