Toshiba satellite is stuck safe mode it's running Windows XP.I tried restart f8 start normal a black screen with bunch stuf& starts in safe mode. What's wrong how can I get it out of safe mode?


First you should really consider upgrading from Windows XP because it is no longer supported and the chances of your computer becoming infected are extremely high.

Pressing the F8 command will only access Windows RE where you can access startup repair safe mode etc.

If the computer is only allowing you to go into safe mode that is a good sign that something is severely wrong with your OS.

While in safe mode you should try and access system restore, but this will only work if 1) you have turned on system restore and 2) your system has a restore point to access.

Have you added any new hardware or programs to the computer? If yes, then the new addition may be the cause of this issue. You can use device manager to rollback any changes or access programs and features to delete any program changes.

Other then that, if none of the above suggestions work I would strongly suggest booting from the disk media to access Windows RE too recovery the computer or just to re-image the computer.

Hope that helps.

Cant get to f8 screen


LOL, most times those recovery CD's don't work. OK, I've never heard of hitting F8 to get to the System Recovery screen. Normally hitting F8 repeatedly after you hit the power button gets you into SAFE MODE or some other options for booting. I would remove the CD from the cd drive and turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately hit F8 until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option. Let it boot up. Safe mode will look different than normal windows. The icons will be bigger and the screen darker, but that's normal. Once safe mode is up click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Run System Restore and select a restore point (date and time) before you started having a problem. Don't worry, system restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

System Recovery DELETES EVERYTHING and sets your computer back to when it was first purchased. If you must run System Recovery F8 is not the key you should be pressing.

I found the info below by putting "Alienware PC Systems M7700 System Recovery" in a google search. Sounds like you bought yourself a piece of trash.
25. System Restore And Recovery Is Not For Wimps The system restore process for the Alienware Aurora M7700 is definitely not for beginners. For one thing, the process doesn't fire off automatically as promised (at least that's what we read on the label affixed to the recovery CD included with the unit). Instead, system restore involves a complete Windows XP Home reinstall "from scratch." Likewise, the drivers don't reside on the Master CD as described in the documentation. Rather, they're located on the Utility CD. During the driver installation phase, it's irritating to get no progress report on individual drivers, perhaps by way of a simple progress bar. Also irksome, the system reboots automatically after the installation of each individual driver. Finally, those who want to succeed at restoring the M7700 back to full operability better know what a disk partition is and understand that the RAID driver must be installed from a diskette.

My acer aspire one kav60 fell and gives the options to start using safe mode,,safe mode with networking,,last known settings that workedq,, ect but restarts once it gets to the windows xp splash screen...


Try to restart the system using " last known good configuration " option.

If the problem persist you may have to restore the system to earlier restore point by starting the system in safe mode.

hope this will help.

Hi, i cannot get inside windos xp. i'd like to reinstall or reboot my laptop. what am i goin to do? I dont have cd rom. pls. help thanks.


Without the XP CD, you're kind of stuck. If you can get one from a friend, it'll work fine. Once you get a disk, you can boot from the disk by setting your CD-ROM drive as the boot drive or run setup on the disk to start the reformat/reinstall process.

Windows cannot find regsvr.exe at start up


Probably the easiest way to resolve this issue is by following the steps outlined below.

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Turn the computer on and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
3. use the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and press enter.
4. Window is should start with a "Help" window.
5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?"
Click on that and "Click to open System Restore"
6. click on that and a new window comes up recommending restoring to a previous state.
7. Click ok and the operating system should restore your computer successfully and reboot into normal mode.

My laptop cant use in noraml mode and it turns to white


resetart the laptop and choose "Debugging mode". This will show the list of files that loads during the initial boot up and OS starting. Reply with the last file listed before the BSOD.

If the BSOD occurs after the logging, list where it occurs (during the "Starting Windows XP window" or "after the desktop appears but no desktop icons".

Also, provide what OS is on the laptop.

My Computer restarts continous.


Sounds like you have been infected with a trojan of some sort. You can try do one of two things. Either re-install your OS or attempt to get around the trojan by doing a system restore at a time when you know your machine was working properly. Forget trying to cleam it out, I 've found that once you at this point, you need to be drastic in your fix.
If you chosse to attempt a system restore boot up in Safe Mode, just prior to it completing its start up, you will see a window with asking you if you ar egoing to do a system restore or if you want to just complete your start up in safe mode. You will be given a yes/no choice, click no which will result in bringing up the system restore window.

Boot up problem


Although this is almost always a hardware problem, pinpointing which hardware is the culprit can be a tedious task so before making any hardware changes, assume first that this may be is a software problem. Assuming that you have Windows XP installed as your OS. You can try fixing your system with System Restore. To do this, turn on your PC and press F8 during the boot-up process. Select Safe Mode and login with an Administrator Account. A pop-up window will then prompt you to enter Windows in Safe Mode or just Restore your system by using System Restore, choosing NO will automatically open up the SYSTEM RESTORE window. Choose a restore point (a point or a date where your PC worked well before having problems). Your PC will reboot with the configuration set on your selected restore point. If this doesn;t solve the problem. You can try fixing your system using your Windows XP installation CD. Just don't forget to set your CD as the first boot device.
