HDD OS IS RUNNING IN RECOVERY MODE

How do I get my system to run in the Normal mode so that I can have access to the large amount (about 148 gb) of HD I have available there? Also, my CD ROMs are not being read by my system, although the drivers are there.  Can this be related to the first problem?  They both occurred at the same time.

Toshiba satellite is stuck safe mode it's running Windows XP.I tried restart f8 start normal a black screen with bunch stuf& starts in safe mode. What's wrong how can I get it out of safe mode?


First you should really consider upgrading from Windows XP because it is no longer supported and the chances of your computer becoming infected are extremely high.

Pressing the F8 command will only access Windows RE where you can access startup repair safe mode etc.

If the computer is only allowing you to go into safe mode that is a good sign that something is severely wrong with your OS.

While in safe mode you should try and access system restore, but this will only work if 1) you have turned on system restore and 2) your system has a restore point to access.

Have you added any new hardware or programs to the computer? If yes, then the new addition may be the cause of this issue. You can use device manager to rollback any changes or access programs and features to delete any program changes.

Other then that, if none of the above suggestions work I would strongly suggest booting from the disk media to access Windows RE too recovery the computer or just to re-image the computer.

Hope that helps.

My alienware with windows7 will turn on but has a missing operating sys message. I can't start it in safe mode.


In the bios see if you can run a HDD check/scan.
Do you have a Windows 7 recovery disk (DVD)
If you do boot from the recovery disk. you should be able to recover the OS.
Or even use some tools to check the HDD (Hard Drive)

Normally this can either be a corruption, or a failed HDD.

Hour glass pops up and doesnt go away. i cant use ant features and cant access any menus any help?


Sounds like a bunch of malware in your system. See if you can use your system in "safe mode" - F8 key when booting up. If you can, reboot back to normal startup and try a free malware program. Malwarebytes.org is currently one of the best.

Start the computer and keeping hitting F8 so you can get into SAFE MODE. When you get in SAFE MODE try restoring your computer to an earlier date.
