Hi,
No you need to turn the PC off and press the F8 button when you switch it back on, until you get to the BIOS selection screen. Hope this helps.
Thanks

Safe mode how do I leave safe mode?


if your device/pc wont leave safe mode, then you have either damaged your OS or you just have it enabled in startup.

within safe mode do the following:

Windows Key + R>

In the Run window type "msconfig" without the ""

In msconfig go to the "BOOT" Tab

if enable you will have Safe Boot Checked,, Simply Uncheck it and restart!

if its already Unchecked, then you have a bigger problem with your os and you might need to perform a system restore. i hope this helps!

The 633 error is a connection problem that appears every time you try to use the modem on your computer.

It states "modem is already in use" and prevents you from accessing the Internet.


This problem mostly appears when a device with incompatible drivers has conflicts with the modem driver on your computer system.


The major software that causes this error is the Palm Pilot Software.

With some simple troubleshooting steps, resolve this modem communication error.


Shut down all currently running applications and restart your computer.

Press "F8" repeatedly before Windows begins to open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.


Scroll down and select "Safe Mode." Press "Enter" to log into Windows Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is used for troubleshooting and repairing system components.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select the "Control Panel."

Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to open the programs window.


Click "Program and Features" (Windows Vista users) and select "Uninstall a Program" to open the programs window.


Click the incompatible software (e.g., Palm Desktop and Synchronization Software) and select "Change/Remove."


Click "Yes" to confirm and uninstall the program from your computer.


Restart your computer normally to complete the process.

Wont boot in safe mode


start your laptop before booting windows press f8 button continuously

ndows 2000 / XP users

bulb.gif If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows, you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Once you're done in Safe mode if you want to get back into Normal Windows restart the computer like you normally would and let it boot normally. Click here to get additional information about getting out of Safe mode.

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the Windows OS is already messed up. You should be able to boot the computer to safe mode to troubleshoot the issue. In your case, it is not booting up to safe mode then the only way to use your computer again is to restore it from the factory default state. If you want to do that, just turn off the computer then press the ONE KEY button located beside the power button then follow the on screen instructions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Still, No luck with laptop


Hello,

Your laptop is booting to a Windows Desktop, so there is no hardware fault or Ram isssue. You may have a lack of free space on C:, but I would suggest the following:

Shut off your laptop if its not off already. Restart after a moment and press F8 while booting, this should get you a startup menu for using Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and then your presented with an OS choice, usually your windows installation is already highlighted. If it is hit enter, if it isn't use the up/down arrow keys to highlight it and tehn hit enter.

Once you reach a desktop environment you are warned that you are entering Safe Mode, acknowledge that notification, you will proceed into Safe Mode dektop. Does your mouse do what you want? When you press the Windows Logo key on your keyboard does the start menu pop up?

If so, let us know with a reply using the comment box below. We can take some measures to get your problem taken care of shortly.

Regards,
Worldvet
