You may have set windows to manually restart into safe mode every time it boots up via msconfig see http://www.wikihow.com/Start-Windows-in-Safe-Mode

Hi Steven-
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.

My safe mode has been on 3 days,I have tried to turn off power,and restart.Also tried to turn and tap power off.Any other suggestions how to get off,and why did it appear


A laptop or computer in safe mode normally suggests a corrupt file caused by switching off before it has closed down properly. Run safe mode and check for faulty files.

Hiw do reset my Sylvania tab N77C when it stops at boot and It cant open the recovery 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.

I installed a rompaq update on the laptop and it stopped working. what do i do? the laptop is so dear to me. pls help.


Hello,

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.

Regards.

Why is my laptop is stuck in start up mode


Hi bungee221,

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. Once eRecovery has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings
4. Click OK to continue
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press OK to reboot unit.

If you think this helpful rate me and dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Blue screen was appearing while booting the system


This is a driver issue, try this. 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.

Laptop is stuck in safe mode Acer


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 XPmag-glass_10x10.gif 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.
