If you are using XP/ vista or 2000

To get into the Safe mode, as the computer is booting tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

from there choose safe-mode.

hope this helps, please rate.

How to get out of safe mode


Hi,

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. This feature was introduced under the Microsoft Windows 2000 Operating System platform and retained in newer Microsoft environments. 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. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

4.When the user selection screen appears please select administrator account & login.

5.When desktop loads completely you can see start button.

6.Press start button --> All programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore.

7.When the system restore wizard appears you can restore you computer to an earlier time.

8.Select a proper restore point before you install that AVG 8.5. Then select and restore you want.

9.An automatic process will start. When that process completes system will reboot automatically.

10.When System is rebooting don't hit F8 again, Please allow normal booting. Please login your user account & check your problem is fixed or not. If fixed you can install another antivirus program.

Emachine w3107 reboots when windows xp loads


These kinds of issues are most often related to driver conflicts. First thing you need to do is reboot your PC while holding F8, until you receive the menu about booting in to Safe Mode. Try booting in to Safe Mode.

If you can get in to Safe Mode, disable any new devices you have recently installed, reboot again, this time letting it try to boot all the way to Windows.

If it reboots again, go back in to Safe Mode and disable/uninstall something else.

Basically, it is a process of elimination. Safe Mode loads a very minimal set of system drivers, so if you can boot in to Safe Mode but not in to full Windows, the problem is one (or more...) of the drivers that load in Windows but don't load in Safe Mode.

System keeps rebooting


Ok, here may lie the problem, its probably an issue with one of the updates from MS.
Disconnect one of the PC's from the network, boot into safe mode and uninstall SP3 and the Video drivers.
After you have done that boot in normal mode to see if the system still restarts
Post back with the results please

Good luck

System keeps rebooting when it gets to the desktop


The problem is actually with eLock2FSCTLDriver.sys. So if the eLock program is uninstalled in safe mode, as it is crashing out the network initialisation, then the system will reboot as normal. It has no interaction with the AVG program, and this is official from AVG, and is a problem between Acer eLock and MS updates. Jon.

I have an acerpower fh series and it keeps rebooting when it reaches the desktop. it does fine in safe mode. i have done a system restore and it didn't help. i have checked the fans to make sure they are...


I'm a PC technician who worked on this exact problem today. Tried everything: ram tests, hard drive tests, looked for bad driver installs, tried everything I could think of and every diagnostic disc my company has. Our solution involved services that ran during normal mode, but not during safe mode. Which service you ask? AVG. We uninstalled it during safe mode, rebooted, and bam. It worked. It may have something to do with recent updates to AVG, but it only happened to this Acer. My Toshiba laptop and our company's Dell's are okay. Try uninstalling AVG: It may not be your particular solution, but it was ours for this comp.

When I log on my computer it will restart


Reboot to Safe Mode and select "Last known good configuration"
To go to Safe Mode: while rebooting keep tapping on F8

From within Safe Mode, you also can access the System Configuration Utility. In WinXP, click Start and Run, type sysedit in the Open field, and press ENTER. In Vista, click Start and then type sysedit into the Start Search bar. Press ENTER or click sysedit.exe when it appears in the Programs menu.

You can also uninstall programs that you installed which probably caused the issue to happen in Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs or do a System Restore.

My computer is rebooting over an over ....dont have time to do anything....now i open my computer on safe ....mode what should i do??? i have window xp


If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE. 6 Pts Rate Answer

Hi PC;
try booting up in safe mode then shutdown from there, see if you still hang on the blank blue screen.

to go to safe mode, tap F8 when your pc is booting up.

get back to me for feedback. :)
