You are going to have to do a reinstall of windows. You can try the F11 or F12 key right after you hit the power button to see if you have a reinstall partition. If not you"ll need your recovery disc or a windows disc. Google how to do a repair install. This will save all your files and settings if the option is avaliable.

If you have the windows operating system disc make the OS boot from the CD-ROM then when you get to a screen that says would you like to install windows click "R" to repair it, The computer will repair the operating system and then restart itself and all will be normal again.The reason why your computer is doing it is because you picked up a virus that corrupted your operating system files.

#2 "safe mode with networking" will only work if you were attached to a local network and configured to boot from it. This is not the normal configuration for most users. The network they are referring to is NOT the internet.

How do i turn off safe mode


Most computers when you boot it up give the option of "Boot Menu" upon the first few seconds of powering the machine on. Look at the screen and see if it reads Press F1 or F2 for Boot Menu. From there you can toggle off the safe mode option. Sometimes it's the delete key or alt key for some other computer providers as well.

Hope this helps,

My Lenovo laptop starts up and shows Microsoft Windows starting to load but a few seconds later the screen goes black. The computer is on but it shows a black screen.


Try running in Safe mode.
Start the computer and hit the F8 key many times till you get Windows Advanced Option menu - Choose safe mode with or with out networking.

Does your computer seem to be working now? (safe mode is a limited use mode)
Chances are that your computer is infected and preventing normal use..

Restoring the computer would be the easiest way to fully clean out all infections and needed software corruptions. A full restore DELETES all DATA from the hard drive - Make sure you have all your data backed up. You can back up your DATA in side safe mode.

The information given relates to CORRUPTIBLE software like a virus....
Other issues may factor in to this but, not believed to be so.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

My HP Notebook first showed a black screen and then after a hard shutdown and restart it only shows a black screen with colored lines. It seems that it is starting up even though I can't see the screen.


Try this,Start in VGA mode.Once started,update your video drivers

To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
Safe Boot options loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  • Safe Mode (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows.
  • Safe Mode with Networking (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Network): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows together with the drivers that you must have to load networking.
  • Safe Mode with Command Prompt (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal(AlternateShell)): This option is the same as Safe mode, except that Cmd.exe starts instead of Windows Explorer.
  • Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.

Safe mode business


safe mode automatically comes up when you didn't shut down properly. Just select boot as normal or last known good configuration then you are good to go.

uninstall any new hardware or software you have recently installed to cause the problem in the first place. If you haven't installed anything then windows should just start normally.

good luck
