Have you tried pressing F8 at bootup? If no, then do it now and be led to a menu with Safe Mode as one of the options. If that does not work, then try using the "Last good boot" option.

Won't boot in safe mode


Starting an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode allows you to troubleshoot technical issues that you otherwise couldn't. Often when a system has a virus or other type of malicious program, safe mode is the only way to locate and delete the problem. In safe mode, only the computer's essential programs are enabled, and only the files necessary to running the system are in use. Learn how to start an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode using a few fairly easy steps.

1.Close all programs and restart the IBM Thinkpad T43.

2.Press "F8" repeatedly after the IBM logo appears, but before the operating system logo appears. If the "F8" key doesn't work, restart the computer and try pressing the "F11" key repeatedly.

3.Press the "down arrow" key to select "Safe Mode."

4.Press the "Enter" key. The computer will boot up in safe mode.

Starts up until welcome screen, then goes black


Hi there,

Try Last Known Good Configuration. From shutdown turn the computer on and as soon as you see the DELL logo start tapping F8. Advance Boot Options will appear and then use the up or down arrow keys to go to Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

If that does not work:

Try booting to safe mode. After powering the computer up when you see the DELL logo start tapping F8 from your keyboard and then choose "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" if you're able to boot up successfully go to Start-> All Programs-> Accessories-> System Tools and then System Restore.
Restore your computer to a date when it was working.


Hope you found this helpful!

My computer, a Dell Inspiron 1525, keeps freezing. Everytime I turn it on, it'll freeze at least once before I'm able to use it.


Try to 'recover' or 'restore' to an earlier time. Look under help in the start menu in order to find links to make this happen on your laptop.

Or, try to get Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, and install it through the DVD drive, if so equipped to overwrite the old operating system that is giving you trouble.

One may also try to download the Windows 7 operating system, if a DVD drive is not available, but an Internet connection is.

Good luck on this repair.

Trying to restore dell 4400 and cannot get to a dell screen for f-12


If you boot from the XP CD and choose the first repair option it will load to a DOS prompt. From there type "chkdsk /r" and press enter. This will run checkdisk on your hard drive and repair any problems that it finds. It will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size of your drive. Once it finishes type exit to reboot and remove the CD. Your computer should boot normally.
