    After powerup, for a split second you see windows xp screen and then it goes to the sorry for the inconvenience screen. Whatever I try, the same thing happens, it attempts to start, the goes to the Toshiba screen for a second or two and right back to the inconvenience screen. I used F12 and tried to boot from CD, it says setup is loading files and then freezes. I had to remove battery to shut it off.

My del studio laptop doesn't shut down


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.

I receive a blue screen for windows 7. I am unable to log into safe mode. Repair Your Computer on Advance Boot Options does not work. it restarts the same for safe mood I have tried Last Known Good...


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 need to start my MSI U100 netbook in safemode, I do a hard shutdown and then repeatedly tap F8 while it is starting up. It will not start in safe mode, it simply displays a black screen with "F3....."...


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!

My Toshiba Satellite 4010CDS Laptop never gets past boot. When I turn it on it goes to the Toshiba splash screen and never goes past that. The hard drive makes a lot of noise when I turn it on also. Thank...


What OS are you running?
Did you recently install a new app?
Did you recently install a new hard drive?

Try and do a system restore boot the computer in safe mode with networking to do this you:

  1. Turn on laptop
  2. While booting up press and hold F8
  3. Until you are brought to a boot up option page with different ways of booting up
  4. Click safe mode with networking
  5. When you do this computer will load and click system restore
  6. Restore computer to a previous date when it was working

Dell Inspiron 1545. When booting to vista the screen goes black. When booting to safe mode the screen works normally.


Please reinstall the Video Driver and check if the same issue persists. If the issue started within last 90 days, you can try the System Restore

UNMOUNTABLE______BOOT_____VOLUME ***Stop: 0 X


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.

Good Luck

My HP Notebook first showed a black screen and then after a hard shutdown and restart it only shows a black screen with colored lines. It seems that it is starting up even though I can't see the screen.


Try this,Start in VGA mode.Once started,update your video drivers

To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
Safe Boot options loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  • 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.
