I'm running Windows 7 and when I load the software, my computer goes into "safe mode", letters and pictures are larger than normal and appear fuzzy...plus it does not load at all into my laptop which also runs on Windows 7. Was thinking this has corrupt files or lines of code. Any help here??

How to Bypass Windows Password With Ease?


Nowadays, it comes a common sense to add a BIOS or Windows password for laptop protected. Thus, a feasible advice is to create a Windows password disk in case that you forgot Windows password. But without Windows password reset disk, what should we do in order to bypass Windows password?

It's time to learn how to bypass Windows password with the following two tips and tricks.

Method 1: Bypass Windows password by Safe Mode with Command Prompt

According to Wiki, Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer Operating System (OS), a special way for Windows to load when a system-critical problem interfering with normal operation of Windows. If you are not able to boot your computer in normal mode or supposed your notebook is infected with Trojans or malware, you are able to get rid of them with Safe Mode. Furthermore, it is easier and safer to bypass Windows password in Safe Mode when you lost or forgot Windows password.

Take Windows 7 for example: there are 3 different types of safe mode: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Below is a guide on how to bypass Windows 7 password with Safe Mode with Command Prompt, which allows you to bypass Windows password with command line. Detailed steps are as follow:

Step 1. Boot or reboot your Windows 7 computer.
Step 2. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.
Step 3. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt in the coming screen, then Press Enter.
Step 4. Wait for Windows 7 files to load until Windows login screen comes up.
Step 5. Log in with an administrator account when you see logon screen.
Step 6. A Command Prompt appears.Type net user in the Command Prompt and then hit Enter. All Windows user account names will be listed for you.
Step 7. Type net user 'Alina 123' and hit Enter.
Step 8. The new password has been successfully reset when the command is completed successfully.
Step 9. Log on your PC with the new password.

Note: 'Alina' is your locked Windows user account name. And '123' means the new password you want to reset for the locked account.
Whenever you need to log on to Safe Mode, an administrator account password is necessary. So it is highly recommended you to write Windows password down and sotre it or creating a Windows password recovery disk before lost/forgot Windows password.

Method 2: Bypass Windows password with Windows Password Unlocker

Lost Windows 7 Password, How to Get in Your Password Protected PC in Safe Mode?


Lost Windows 7 password, what will you do to get in your password protected computer? In fact, there are lots of ways for you to regain access to the locked computer? In addition to use a password reset disk to reset Windows 7 password, you can still log on your PC in safe mode to change the lost Windows 7 password. It is very simple. Just three steps. You could follow the below guide.

Step 1: Enter safe mode in Windows 7 operating system

1. Start or restart your Windows 7 machine.

2. Press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options just before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.

3. Use arrows to choose Safe Mode when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

4. Press Enter and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

5. Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen.

Step 2: Change lost Windows 7 password

Now you are logged into Windows 7 in safe mode. You diagnose and solve some serious problems under it, especially when starting Windows normally is impossible. To reset Windows 7 password, just do as follows:

1. Click Start button and input lusrmgr.msc into the Search box.

2. In the coming Local Users and Groups screen, double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.

3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.

4. Type and confirm the new password.

Note: you can also go to Local Users and Groups screen by right-clicking Computer to select Manage on desktop.

Step 3: Log on your computer with the new password

You have successfully perform Windows 7 password reset. Now you can easily access to your compute with the new password. Please note that you must log on with an account that has administrator permissions.

More information:

When you are presented with Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 variations of Windows 7 Safe Mode.

Safe Mode - This is the default option and is usually the best choice. This mode will load only the absolute minimum processes necessary to start Windows 7.

Safe Mode with Networking - This option loads the same processes as Safe Mode but also includes those that allow the networking functions in Windows 7 to work. You should choose this option if you think you may need to access the Internet or your local network while troubleshooting in Safe Mode.

Safe Mode with Command Prompt - This version of Safe Mode also loads a minimum set of processes but will allow immediate access to the Command Prompt. This is a valuable option if more advanced troubleshooting is necessary.

Actually, the 3 options are available for you. I only take Safe Mode as an example. But if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to change the lost Windows 7 password.

If you cannot log on Windows with an account that has administrator permissions, you will be not able to enter Windows safe mode. In that case, I'm afraid you'll need third party software Windows Login Recovery to help to bypass your lost Windows 7 password and get back in your protected computer. Windows Login Recovery allows you to reset lost Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. It takes you take less than 5 minutes.

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!

Configuring updates screen


Try booting up in Safe Mode and see what happens.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it boots up ok, then do a restart into your normal windows mode.


Try running the check disk utility.



To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My acer netbook (winxp) won't load after the mouse cursor appeared


Sounds like you need to run the check disk utiltity but since you don't have a CD Drive, you're up the creek without a paddle. try booting up into Safe Mode and if you get there successfully reboot and see if the normal mode works, if not you can uninstall Microsoft Security Essential in Safe mode. Or you can use System Restore to restore back to a point (date and time) when the system was working ok. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point before you loaded Security Essentials. In Windows 7 just click Start then type System Restore in the search box above the start then look at the returned results and click System Restore.

System Restore does not lose any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the programs was installed after the date and time you selected).

To get into safe mode follow the steps below:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

You can try to get to a dos command prompt or you can see if the system will allow you to boot in Safe Mode to get to the dos command prompt.

Cannot get on line in safe mode


safe mode is normally used to troubleshoot problems especially software and drivers. where you use this the computer boots up with minimum software running so you can fix problems. I am sure the modem or network drivers are not loaded and ect.

Can't get to login window


Blue screens are normally critical errors. If you have loaded any new hardware to your computer lately or some software packages you will need to uninstall them.

Try starting windows in safe mode by pressing F8 continuoulsy until you hear a beep. This will start the computer in safe mode and everything will look big on the screen, ignore that for now. While you are in safe mode uninstall anything that you have loaded prior to this error. Be it software or hardware.

If you have not loaded anything recently then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when you know that it was working with now problems.

Once safe mode boots go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was running okay. Once the restore has taken place the computer will reboot. If asked what mode you want to start in choose start windows normally.

Hopefully this will help you resolve your problem.
