Re: i have my laptop stuck in safe mode. i checked safe...
Laptops should return to normal mode upon subsequent start-up. If it does not, when you (re)start your computer, begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly (like a woodpecker). After a few moments, this will bring up a manual start screen (white letters on a black background)-you will see an option to Start Using Windows Normally down toward the bottom of the screen. Using your arrow keys, scroll down to that choice and hit ENTER. Your PC will then boot up in regular mode.

Right after you press the power on button begin pressing the F8 key. This will open a screen where you can select "Safe Mode", then hit the Enter key on your keyboard. Wait for Safe Mode to boot up (may take a minute or so). Then try opening Recovery mode or System Restore. Failing this, insert your Windows installation disk or Windows emergency repair/boot disk and follow instructions to access Recovery Mode.
reboot your computer,
then hold the F8 key to get the boot menu.
select safe mode
once you are back in windows go back to msconfig, but this type select normal startup.
reboot, no you will be loading everything, once you are in windows get back to msconfig, and configure it properly and select "Selected Startup"
if the laptop was working perfectly before you installed the rompaq update, then it means the rompaq is the cause of the problem.
You need to perform a system restore in order to undo the installed rompaq.
Run your system in safe mode and perform the system restore.
To run system in safe mode, Turn on the computer and immediately, start pressing F8 constantly till a windows booting option shows up. Use the arrow key on your keyboard to select safe mode and press enter, then wait for the windows to load completely.
After the computer and successfully booted in safe mode, go to:
Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore.
Read and follow instructions. System will restart during the restore process.....
After that try again and observe of your laptop will function/work properly/normally.
Please let me know if this doesn't solve your problem so that I can help you further.
You can try to boot the system using Safe Mode and try to see it it will be able to boot so that you will be able to backup your file. In addition to that you disable other programs that might be causing the system not to boot up. Go to Safe Mode by reseting the computer then tapping F8. If your able to acces safe mode follow these instructions: 1. Go to Start then click on RUN. 2. Type MSCONFIG. 3. Go to Services Tab, click Hide Microsoft Services then click Disable All. 4. Reboot the computer and see it it will go to normal mode. It you will be able to boot to normal mode it only means that one of the installed software is preventing windows to load. 5. if still cant boot you neet to reformat the system. Take note that if you reformat the system all the files will be deleted so its better to back up the files first. You can use a Recovery Disk that came with the system or you do a Acer Disk Recovery.
Acer Dsik Recovery Steps:
1. Power on the Machine 2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the Alt key and press the F10 key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery 3.

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
I faced the same problem with my laptop. I tried several methods. But none of them worked. But finally when I tied the following procedure it worked.
The following instructions work on a computer running Windows XP only, this is assuming that your laptop has XP installed on it. Use this only if your computer wont come out of safe mode by restarting it.
Go to Start > Run and type "msconfig" in the dialog box that comes up. Press Enter or OK and the System Configuration Utility box should come up. Click on the "BOOT.INI" tab. Down in the bottom left corner of the window under where it says Boot Options there will be several checkboxes. Make sure that the /SAFEBOOT box DOES NOT have a check in the box. When it is unchecked restart your computer and you should be out of safe mode.
