Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

I could only start in safe mode for a few days, starting windows normally resulted in freezing a few seconds after start-up and loading the desktop. Only the cursor would move. I tried deleting the temporary files, a disk cleanup, defragment, and a system restore, but I still had the same problem. I took it to IT support on campus and they suggested I download 3 different spyware/malware scanners. Nothing showed up on two, but the final one picked up a Trojan. I quarantined the file and removed it, but now when I load windows normally I just get a black screen with a cursor. I need to get this fixed asap as I have assignments to print off for class. Any suggestions as to how I can fix it?

Sr1920nx starts to load windows then freezes


Infected with something or driver issues.. Try this trick, Turn off the system and wait 20 seconds, start the computer and click the F8 key till you see a black and white screen. Choose Safe mode or safe mode with networking. If windows starts this way, then you know you have a infection or a driver issue - If the computer does the same freeze up, then you know it has other issues - possibly hardware issues..

Hopes this information help, Have a great day..

Tip

Login into safe mode.


You can use safe mode for a number of things...
Uninstalling programs that refuse to unistall in normal login;
Performing a system restore;
Scanning for dangerous viruses and Trojans;
and so many other things.
How ever, you can not install programs in safe mode because the installer is disabled.
In safe mod, you sound and graphics cards are also disabled, so you cant listen to anything or play video games.

To start your system in safe mode:
1. restart your system.
2. During system restart, press F8 before your Operating System (OS) is loaded, before the OS logo is displayed.
3. A list of options will be displayed, which include "Start Windows Normally","Safe Mode" among other options.
4. Select safe mod and press enter.
5. Give it a few seconds for safe mode to start, then log into your administrator account to start using safe mode.

My dell dimmension e521 won't load to window screen.....i can't even get in to safe mode.......help


How did you try to get to safe mode. Have to tap F8 continuously for a while as soon as pc starts to boot. Holding key down might not work so it's better if you can keep tapping key quickly. If you have tried several times and can't get it to start in safe mode windows will normally put up an error screen to say windows didn't start properly with a few options. If you see this screen select last known good configuration and it might start to load windows normally if you are lucky.

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,

Marty

Freezes after it loads


I would use the System Restore function and revert back to before you installed it. You should use Firefox if you're not already instead of IE 8. It's still in BETA anyways.

You can do the system Restore in Safe Mode. Press F8 every few seconds when you start the computer.

The problem has been a series of smaller problems which progressively resulted in a lock or freeze. The few times it does not freeze, a screen flashes on selling a Spyware protection. I think my husband...


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
Avast is the best free antivirus there is. google it, install it, and enjoy your computer again.Another option is to reinstall windows. If you have the cd that came with the computer than put it in the cd rom and restart your computer and follow onscreen instructions.

Windows will not start up


choose start windows in Safe mode, if it starts then everything will look big, don't worry about that for now. Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.

I hope this helps

How can i restart my computer all over just like brand new


you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
Regards!
