You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.
Check if you installed something before this happens. Try to uninstall it or removed the device. You may also need the recovery disc which came with the laptop or make one or borrow one as long as when the key is asked you use the one for the laptop (normally found in the sticker on the laptop). Other than that you may need to re-install the operating system.
i guess it is a key sequence,all pc 's are different mine goes into bios pages when F2 is pressed whilst booting and F9 when i want to reinstall the OS Dont know why you want "safe" mode or do you mean "standby" whereby you can still download with the lid closed --any how good luck!
It could be a problem with the harddrive and memories ,if you enter the DELL bios setup page when the computer starts up does it have an option to test the hard drive if so test it. Also if you have two memory sticks then try with only one and vice versa.
Try booting with another boot CD like the ultimate boot CD it has some hard drive testing tools too.
suspected hard disk faulty or OS corrupted.
to check, take out your hard disk and put it in other laptop. if the problem persist your OS is corrupted. In that case, you need to reformat your OS in a defaulty factory settings.
Safe Mode (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows.
Safe Mode with Networking (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Network): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows together with the drivers that you must have to load networking.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal(AlternateShell)): This option is the same as Safe mode, except that Cmd.exe starts instead of Windows Explorer.
Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.
