Disable safe mode


Which operating system and do you have Norton antivirus ???
Turn Off Safe Mode

You rebooted your PC at least 10 times now, and still it refuses to start in anything other than Safe Mode.
Your many attempts to perform a system restore have yet to be victorious. It just will not boot up normally.
According to Microsoft, if you have Norton Antivirus 2001 installed on your computer, it is the root of the problem. Microsoft suggests you disable it.

Restart your computer. Let it load completely in Safe Mode.
Press "Run" on your Start menu.
Once you see the Open box, enter into the provided text box: misconfig.
Then press "Enter" or Select "OK."
Select on the new dialog box that has appeared "Selective Startup."
Select "NAVAP.VxD" on the Static VxD tab.
Remove the check in the check box you now see.
Select "OK."
Remove the check in the check box next to Norton Auto Protect.
Select "OK."
Reboot your system and it will be in Normal Mode.
Turn Off Safe Mode in Windows XP
The purpose of booting your computer in safe mode is to resolve issues.
Only your basic, most dire drivers and programs will run to block viruses and surreptitious software from executing on your system.
But once the issue is resolved, you need to get back to the standard Windows mode. In order to turn off safe mode in Windows XP, you must go through the same steps that you took to turn it on.

Reboot your Windows system.
Press the "F8" key several times as soon as you see the first Windows XP logo appear on your screen as the computer is booting.
This will bring up a black screen that displays the "Windows Advanced Options Menu."
Press the down arrow button on your keyboard to scroll down the list.
Select "Start Windows Normally" and then hit "Enter."
Allow the system to boot.
Enter your Windows XP user password (if you set one) and log in as usual.

Set a Password for Safe Mode in Windows XP


Restrict the access to safe mode by setting administrator password! Safe mode is a special operating mode available in all Windows. In safe mode you can not run audio and video files, if you are affected with Trojans or malware and if you are not able to get rid of them then log on to safe mode. <br /> You can also change and diagnose programs in safe mode.

So it is very important to set a password for safe mode also, to restrict the access to safe mode you can set administrator password for the safe mode.<br /> We will help you to <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/set-password-safe-mode-xp.htm"><b>set a password for safe mode in Windows XP</b></a>, you just have to follow the following steps:<br /> <b>Step1:</b><br /> The first step is to shut down the system and after some seconds reboot the computer. Now to go to safe mode, you just have to press <b>F8</b> while it is rebooting.

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is 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 "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - 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.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Need video driver dell optiplex 170l for windows 7

However, you might want to consider the instructions below, as many people have had the same issue you're having with getting those drivers to work with Windows 7:

You may need to install the drivers in compatibility mode for Windows XP

To run the driver installation program in compatibility mode
Configure the driver installation program to run in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.

How to either turn off or disable "safe mode" at windows xp


How do I disable Safe Mode? (NT, 2000, XP)
Windows NT, 2000 and XP do not have any easy way to disable Safe Mode. However, there is a way to 'break' safe mode temporarily.

Doing this is not recommended. Proceed at your own risk!

Click on the Start Button
Select Run
Type in "regedit" and hit OK
Expand the left hand side to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot
Under SafeBoot, you should now see Minimal and Network. Click on them and hit F2 to rename them to "Minimal-" and "Network-", respectively.
This should cause Windows to crash the next time it is booted into Safe Mode.

Problems when installing sp2 on my dell 4400


Reboot and keep tapping on F8 into Safe Mode. You can select "Last known good configuration" or continue In safe mode and do a system restore to the day before you installed the SP3. To do a system restore, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System restore. Windows XP SP3 has some issues with certain programs giving the blue screen of death.

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.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.
