Start the pc. As soon as something appears on the screen, hit the F8 key several times. This will take you to a list. Use your arrows to highlight last known good configuration. Hit enter and see if windows boots. If not, power the pc off for a couple of seconds then power it up. As soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key again. This time highlight safe mode and hit enter. If it boots to safe mode, when it's done booting, do a system restore. Go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date a couple of days ago and let it do it's thing. It has to reboot. It will do that on it's own. That should fix you up. If this fixws your problem please rate this as fixed. If it didn't fix it and you need more help don't rate it yet.Just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further with this. Thanks.

How to boot up computer in safe mode.


Now to get to safe mode, is a couple different ways depending on your OS.

For Windows 7
  • During boot up, press F8 before the windows splash screen, this should give you the option to boot up into safe mode.
For Windows 8
  • Open up the charms bar
  • Click Settings
  • Hold Shift before pressing the power icon
  • While still holding shift, click the power icon
  • Keep holding shift, and click restart
  • You may release shift
After restarting Windows 8
  • Once the PC boots, you'll see a screen that says "Choose an Option"
  • Click "Troubleshoot"
  • Click "Advanced Options"
  • Click "Windows Startup Settings"
  • The computer will restart
  • When the computer turns back on, you'll have the option to boot into safe mode.

My new acer aspire 7560-sb416, Windows 7 laptop won't boot. Error: "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install...


Try pressing F8 whilst booting to get into safe mode, if this will not work your only option may be to restore to factory settings either from the hard drive partition or from a Windows 7 DVD.

Aspire 5475 freezes on startup


It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

I let the HP asst. Install a bios update and the install is stuck at 40%. What can I do to get out of the update?


Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.

This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.


Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.


If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."


If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."

This will open the System Configuration Utility.


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.

A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.

Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.


If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.

Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally


hope this helps

My inspiron 1018 won't boot. i need to reinstall or repair my software. it does not have a cd drive. please advice action.


The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 series of netbooks come with recovery software that can restore your netbook's original factory settings. Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbooks with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 can be recovered to the factory settings using a recovery partition on the hard drive.
Windows Vista or 7
Turn on or restart your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. Press the "F8" key repeatedly when the "Dell" logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
Highlight "Repair Your Computer," and then press "Enter."
Highlight the language layout you want to use for your keyboard and click "Next." Enter your username and password if prompted. Click "OK."
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and then click "Next." The recovery software on some Dell Mini systems may require you to click "Dell Factory Tools" followed by "Dell Factory Image Restore" and "Next."
Click "Next" if you understand the netbook will be restored to its original factory settings. The recovery process will begin.
Click "Finish" when a message appears saying the recovery is complete. The netbook will restart and boot up to the Windows Vista or Windows 7 set-up screen, where you can begin personalizing your netbook.

Windows XP Recovery
Turn on the computer. Press the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys at the same time while the computer is booting up to access the recovery software.
Click "Restore."
Click "Confirm" to begin the recovery process, which shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.
Click "Finish" to restart the computer and finalize the installation. Click "Yes" to restart the netbook again. The computer will boot up to the Windows XP setup screen


Here is a link which will take you to the site which will allow you to download a ZIP file with a WEB PAGE type service manual for your 1018, after a 45 second wait. (They want you to sign up for premium service but NOT NEEDED) Click again after wait?
After download, open the ZIP file and copy all contents to a new folder. Double click the Contents.html file to open in a web browser, then use the built in shortcuts to navigate the manual.

My laptop won't start and says "NLTDR is missing" press control alt delete to restart... why is that?


Windows is corrupt...
Sol = Reload Windows XP

you will need an original WinXP disk....insert the disk in the CD drive and restart...let it boot from the CD (to make changes to boot sequence make changes in BIOS)
once it boots from CD then repair you OS or install a fresh copy of the OS

Can`t get windows to start i was installing system mechanic 8 it ran some tests up pops a banner saying windows won`t restart. i can`t get it to reboot


Shut it down forcibly.

Restart and boot into safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8

Once in safe mode use the system restore option to go back to a time when it ran OK.

It should then restart and you should be OK.

If you cannot do a system restore then do the F8 type restart again but choose last known good configuration and try that way.

Hope this is of use.

Cant acess safe mode in windows xp, just cycles startup screens


Here are some steps to use MSCONFIG to force your computer into SAFE MODE
  1. Click on Start and then Run.
  2. In the text box in the Run window, type msconfig and click OK. This will open the System Configuration Utility program.
    Note: Do not make changes in the System Configuration Utility other than those outlined here to avoid causing serious system issues. This utility controls a number of startup activities other than those involved with Safe Mode.
  3. Click on the BOOT.INI tab located at the top of the System Configuration Utility window.
  4. Check the checkbox next to /SAFEBOOT and click OK.
  5. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
  6. After the restart, the PC will automatically boot into Windows XP Safe Mode.
    Note: Windows XP will continue to boot into Safe Mode until the System Configuration Utility is configured to again boot normally.
  7. When your work in Safe Mode is complete, click on Start and then Run. Type msconfig in the text box and click OK.
    This will again open the System Configuration Utility program.
  8. Choose the Normal Startup radio button and click OK.
  9. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
  10. After the restart, the PC will boot into Windows XP normally and will continue to do so.
