    Open it up and check the capacitors. Make sure that none of them have a metal top that has popped up an leaked. If they have, you'll have to have an expert replace them. This is one of many common failures in computers. It may not be the answer.

How to get off safe mode


Step 1
Getting out of Safe Mode may be both easy and complicated at the same time. The primary consideration is the reason why the machine is booting into this status. If it was user initiated, the easiest way is to click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Turn Off Computer' option.
Step 2
This will bring up the window with the 'Standby', 'Turn Off', and 'Restart' options. Choose either 'Restart' or 'Turn Off'. Upon rebooting or powering up of the machine, the Operating System should automatically load into Normal Mode. Take note that some users are misled into believing that the system is in Safe Mode primarily due to the incorrect setting of the video. If the system is in Safe Mode, it should be stated at the corners of the screen.
Step 3
If the system keeps on rebooting on Safe Mode, this is a possible indication of a problem in loading startup components. Reboot the machine.
Step 4
During the reboot process, press the 'F8' key to display the boot-up options. In this window, select the 'Last Known Good Configuration' option. The Operating System will attempt to locate the last settings that successfully loaded the Operating System.
Step 5
If still unsuccessful, allow the machine to boot into Safe Mode. Click on the 'Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' option.
Step 6
Click on the 'Performance and Maintenance' category and click on the 'System' icon. This should open the System Properties window.
Step 7
Click on the 'Hardware' tab and click on the 'Device Manager' button. Check for any exclamation or question mark beside any entry. Reload the corresponding device driver for the erroneous component. Repeat Step 2; this should boot the system in Normal Mode.
Step 8
If the computer system entered Safe Mode via the System Configuration utility, then it can only boot in Normal Mode using the same tool. Click on the 'Start' button and choose 'All Programs'. Click on the 'System Tools' category and select the 'System Information' option.
Step 9
From the new window, click on the 'Tools' Menu and select 'System Configuration Utility'. Under the 'General' tab, select the 'Normal Startup' option.
Step 10
Click on the 'OK' button and restart the machine as described in Step 2. This will load the system in Normal Mode.

If the system will not boot into safe mode, you will most likely have to reinstall Windows. You can also try the "Last known good configuration" boot option from the F8 boot menu, I find this doesn't work most of the time, but worth a shot. Be sure to back up your data before you reinstall your operating system.

It just freezes up when you turn it on,what do you do?


Try booting in safe mode and see if it happens. To boot in safe mode shut the computer completely down...when you turn it on tap the F8 key multiple times and it should take you to an advance boot menu. Choose safe mode or safe mode with networking. If it boots fine that way, you may want to disable some items in your start up. You do this by clicking the start button--> click run--> type the letters msconfig (without spaces) under the startup tab, you may see a whole bunch of stuff check. Uncheck all uneeded software starting up. reboot the machine in regular mode and see if that helps. post back with your findings-

I have a gateway w/ vista home premium. After i hit the power button to turn it on, the machine goes thru the regular process of booting and before it gets to the login screen a black screen apears. At...


You can try to press F8 after you first turn on the machine, you want to keep tapping it but not super fast or you can make a keyboard error. Just until a screen appears that will give you the option to boot in Safe Mode.

If you can boot in safe mode you may be able to also choose "Last Known Configuration that Worked" as an option.

This is about the 5th option down on the screen (NOT in VISTA SAFE MODE)

If none of these options work you will just need a Vista Disc. If you use this it will not detroy your data unless you delete the partition.

But you will lose your programs, or at least have to reinstall them.

**IMPORTANT**

You must have a regular VISTA DISC not the ones that come bundled with computers. Those will 9 out 10 times erase everything. and are meant for specific machines. Plus the usually install quite a bit of bloatware on your PC.

Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

I need to know how to put my emachine into safe mode my pc will not work in regular mode


on boot up...before you see windows logo, tap the F8 key on your keyboard and move the selector up and down by using the arrows on your KB. Highlight Safe Mode (with nothing else) and hit ENTER, and that is the name of that tune,
One note prior to doing the Safe Mode thing, try the line that says boot to "last known good boot"
That just might get you into your computer to hit restore or whatever you want to do to solve your problem with the computer.
Hope this answer what you asked for,
good luck and please leave a rating.
thank you kindly

I was adjusting picture on monitor and now picture completely messed up


  • Signal out of Range.
  • Out Of Scan Range
  • Horizontal frequency is out of range.
  • Cannot Display This Video Mode Out of Sync

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.

To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.
