Two ways to go.
1 - If you DON'T NEED YOUR INFO:
Run the restore program that came with your laptop. If you need help with that, write back.
2 - If you DO NEED YOUR INFO:
As long as the hard drive is good and you have given no indication that it is not, remove the hard drive and temporarily install it in a desktop as a slave. Boot that system and get the data that you need. Programs cannot be copied this way. Then replace the drive and continue as above.

How do I get out of safe mode on my dell vastro 2521?


Once you have solved the problem that sets it in "safe mode", you can reboot the computer into normal mode.

Look in the Control Panel.
Pick device manager and look for a yellow balloon, which will show why it is still in safe mode.

After restoring the screen says please wait


It is not unusual for windows to lock up during a system restore. I am curious to know which operating system you have and what prompted you to do the restore. In any event, I would simply power down by holding the power button for 10 seconds. Start it up again and see what happens. If that does not work, I would start the computer in safe mode by pressing F8 during startup BEFORE the windows logo appears. If the computer runs in safe mode but not in a normal start up, I would remove any software of hardware that you may have installed since the computer was working. You can also select a new restore point to see if that works. Windows will also give you the option to start from the last known good configuration from the safe mode window. That is another option. Let me know if that does not work.

How do you get to safe mode for toshiba


Debra,

There are a couple of methods to get to Safe Mode on a PC.

The first and established method of getting Safe Mode to pull up is to turn the computer off all of the way. Then turn the computer back on and immediately start tapping the F8 key on the keyboard. (Don't hold the key down, but instead press it over and over.) This should bring you to a Safe Mode menu to choose which option to boot into.

If you have pressed the F8 key and the computer still attempts to boot to regular windows, you can press and hold in the power button to turn the computer off and retry the F8 option.

The other, less established method of forcing a computer into safe mode is to turn the computer on, wait until you see the Windows logo start to load, and then press and hold in the power button to force a shutdown. Doing this twice in a row should result in the safe mode prompt on the third boot up attempt.

Hope this info helps!

My computer wont start, when I turn it on it says that my computer wasn't shut down properly and gives me the choice to start it in safe or regular mode. When I click regular, it loads up the windows XP OS...


Hi.first you proceed safe mode and check for chance of virus removal if any. other wise try to select start operation with command prompts. Once after solving in any one these options, then think about starting up computer in regular mode. with respect to your statements, the reasons for failure are either virus attack or failure of installing of system file correctly. I hope you got somewhat solution.

Sir i have hp compaq cq40 laptop having win xp .it got effected by some virus . whenever i try to boot it it gives error in some blue screen nd stops processing without booting up windows


Try starting the laptop in SAFE MODE.

To do this turn it off and wait 20 seconds. Then press the power button to restart, and as it is starting up press F8 every second or so until you get a screen that offers options - one of these options is to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Select this option and the laptop will start up Windows in SAFE MODE. The screen will display in low resolution (Large icons etc.)

From here you have the ability to run anti-virus software and diagnose problems. If you don't have anti-virus then try downloading MalwareBytes (google it) and run that - it is a free virus and malware detector.

If your machine will not start in safe mode you may have a hardware problem.

Want to Do a Restore


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
