Hi.

USB means Universal Serial Bus, and it is a system of communication used in computer. The USB port is the rectangle-shaped connector ordinarily found in nowadays computers.
Here the connector:

Safe mode is a special diagnostic mode of Windows operative system. To start a computer running on Windows XP in safe mode you have to press F8 button during startup process.

Regarding the $9.99 subscription, I think that the offer is no longer valid. You can submit an enquiry writing to support@fixya.com.

About the option to rate emission answer, to rate an answer you open the relative problem and click the Accept button to rate the answer positively. In some case it is not possible to rate an expert answer (eg. too old, already rated etc.).

Best regards.

Ginko.

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

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.

I turn on my laptop, and the computer gets to the screen where it says "starting windows" and it does not go any further. It freezes at that point.


1. Disconnect all external devices (printers, USB hubs, USB drives, etc...) and then boot up. If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.
2. Use the"Last known good configuration" from the Windows Advanced Options menu. If this option resolves the issue then look for any updates or software installs that may have caused the problem.
3. Boot to Safe Mode from the Windows Advanced Options menu.If you can get into safe mode then the issue could be driver or software related. From within Safe Mode run a System Restore.
4. Perform a Clean Boot

If you're running XP try this:

1) Restart in Safe Mode. Restart and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting your F8 key
This will take you to a boot option list. Highlight safe mode and hit enter. Wait for it to finish booting in safe mode.
2) Remember that 9/10 PCs running XP do not have any password on the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in Safe Mode.
3) Login to said Admin account.
4)go to START -> RUN -> "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) in the runbox. Click on ok.
5) You should then be able to reset your password.

If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it didn't, or your running Vista, DO NOT rate yet just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks Maria.
