HOW TO ENTER SAFE MODE


hold down F8 when it powers up. May need to remove battery and power cord. New windows 8 and probably windows 10 do not fully power down usually you have to hold shift key when shutting down windows from operating system. So it may not go into safe mode without it being shut down fully.

How to get off safe mode


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.
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.

It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.

Launch startup repair


Check to see if there are any keys stuck/depressed.

If so, use a paperclip and fit it underneath the key and gently pry the end that is stuck.


Make sure the laptop is off before attempting this.

Observe where the boot process ends and starts over.


In most cases, this will give an indication where the problem occurs.

If the laptop reboots early on in the process, for example when it is detecting the hard drive, chances are good it is a hardware issue.


If the reboot occurs further along in the process, like when it is loading operating system files, there may be an issue with operating system software.


Boot in safe mode or the operating system equivalent.

Windows, Unix/Linux and Mac operating system have a mode that will load the minimum software needed to boot.


This is a standard approach in troubleshooting, as it only supports the minimum hardware needed to complete the boot into the operating system.


Once you are logged into the computer, device drivers can be updated, software removed and so forth.


To boot into safe mode in Windows, hit the "F8" key when the computer first starts up to get a submenu.


From there select a boot option. Many choose "Safe mode with command prompt" as this will go line by line through the boot process, allowing you to isolate where the problem might be.


To boot into a different run level in Unix/Linux, it depends on the version of Unix/Linux, but most have the option of a "recovery mode."


During boot hit the "Esc" or "E" key and select the mode appropriate such as "drop to root shell," etc.


If you have the ability to get into command shell, enter into run level 1 (single user mode) by typing in "init 1."


To start in safe boot on a Macintosh laptop, hold the "Shift" key as it boots up.


This forces a disk check and loads minimal software in efforts to complete the boot process, much like the other operating system's "safe modes."


Check to see if your laptop is overheating.

Laptops have a greater likelihood of overheating than desktops.


Either touch the laptop or download an application such as Mobile Meter to check laptop temperature.


If it is running hot, try using canned air to clear out of vents, etc.

Also, elevating the laptop off of its resting surface allows greater airflow in and out of the laptop

My system restart problem


Sounds like a hardware or heat issue. In safe mode your computer is using just minimum resources. Check the temp of your processor, and make sure all cooling fans are running. You can enter bios and check hardware monitor to see the temps.

Restarts computer in loop at 5-8 minutes of boot


Please try install XP SP3 in safe mode. Then check whether you have the latest Graphics Card Driver. It seems like some driver issue as it reboots only in Normal mode. Since safe mode runs on minimalset of hardware drivers.
Secondly, there may be a corrupt file that caused reboot. Spend a night and schedule bad sector check - Right click on system drive, Tools tab, Error Checking -> Check Now, tick both boxes then Start. It will schedule scan on next reboot. Then reboot to confirm it starts checking HD.
