How to boot up computer in safe mode.


Now to get to safe mode, is a couple different ways depending on your OS.

For Windows 7
  • During boot up, press F8 before the windows splash screen, this should give you the option to boot up into safe mode.
For Windows 8
  • Open up the charms bar
  • Click Settings
  • Hold Shift before pressing the power icon
  • While still holding shift, click the power icon
  • Keep holding shift, and click restart
  • You may release shift
After restarting Windows 8
  • Once the PC boots, you'll see a screen that says "Choose an Option"
  • Click "Troubleshoot"
  • Click "Advanced Options"
  • Click "Windows Startup Settings"
  • The computer will restart
  • When the computer turns back on, you'll have the option to boot into safe mode.

I upgraded my bios and my machine loads to a windows logo then goes to blues screen for about a second then resets is there a way to restore the bios to factory default


You need to download a previous version of the BIOS and try to update the PC with that.
Before you do, go into the bios settings and use the 'set bios defaults' option to see if you can clear the bios to a better state. You can also remove the CMOS backup battery on the motherboard, leave it for a few minutes and put the battery back. Then restart the PC, go into bios setup, Save & Exit the bios and see if it boots up. Also, try starting Windows in Safe mode (press F8 during the boot up process to get the windows startup menu).

When i boot up i can choose to start windows normally : safe mode/ w/o networking blah blah but when it boots up the screen just goes black and never loads windows, What are the suggested problems, and/or...


Well first off, when you say 'but when it boots up the screen goes black', what option did you pick? I would try selecting 'Safe Mode with Networking" and see if you can't get into windows. If you can't get into windows in *ANY* mode, you're probably going to have to reload/repair the os instalation. If you can get into safe mode, install 'malwarebytes', an antimalware software, and see if it comes up with anything. If not, I would say that it could be a driver issue.

My hp lap top keeps going into option safe mode then shows me the first screen windows xp then goes back to option safe mode and other options


Hi,

It is possible that your system boot was setup to safe mode everytime it boots up. You may try the steps below.

1. Boot your system to safe mode.

2. Go to Start then Run

3. On the run box type msconfig

4. Look for the tab boot.ini , under this tab uncheck the box that says safeboot then click apply

5. Restart the computer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Dell 1200 Inspiron OS boot problem


Two things you should try to resolve this issue: -

  • Check that the FN button on the keyboard to switch from the Laptop monitor to external monitor has not been enabled - these are usually 3 state switches (Laptop screen ON, External screen ON, Both ON) it is really easy to accidentally hit this without realizing.
  • If this works there is no need to try the second option.
OR
  • Try booting to safe mode - as the laptop boots up and you see the Bios summary screen depress the F8 button and you should receive a screen containing several options.
  • Select the option to Boot to safe mode.
  • If the laptop boots up ok then login to XP, don't be alarmed at the change in screen resolution.
  • Right-click My Computer on the desktop and select Properties - Hardware - Device manager
  • In the tree-view containing the different hardware select Display Adapters you should see your graphics card in there
  • Right-click and select Scan for Hardware Changes if it is ok the close and reboot as normal
  • If there is a problem here it implies the driver is somehow corrupted and may need re-installing from the disk that came with the laptop.
