If you know how to format your laptop so go ahead. But always keep in mind that when you format your laptop all of your data or files will be deleted. So i suggest to have a back up first. Manufacturers gives warranty for hardware not the software.

How to get off safe mode


Step 1
Getting out of Safe Mode may be both easy and complicated at the same time. The primary consideration is the reason why the machine is booting into this status. If it was user initiated, the easiest way is to click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Turn Off Computer' option.
Step 2
This will bring up the window with the 'Standby', 'Turn Off', and 'Restart' options. Choose either 'Restart' or 'Turn Off'. Upon rebooting or powering up of the machine, the Operating System should automatically load into Normal Mode. Take note that some users are misled into believing that the system is in Safe Mode primarily due to the incorrect setting of the video. If the system is in Safe Mode, it should be stated at the corners of the screen.
Step 3
If the system keeps on rebooting on Safe Mode, this is a possible indication of a problem in loading startup components. Reboot the machine.
Step 4
During the reboot process, press the 'F8' key to display the boot-up options. In this window, select the 'Last Known Good Configuration' option. The Operating System will attempt to locate the last settings that successfully loaded the Operating System.
Step 5
If still unsuccessful, allow the machine to boot into Safe Mode. Click on the 'Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' option.
Step 6
Click on the 'Performance and Maintenance' category and click on the 'System' icon. This should open the System Properties window.
Step 7
Click on the 'Hardware' tab and click on the 'Device Manager' button. Check for any exclamation or question mark beside any entry. Reload the corresponding device driver for the erroneous component. Repeat Step 2; this should boot the system in Normal Mode.
Step 8
If the computer system entered Safe Mode via the System Configuration utility, then it can only boot in Normal Mode using the same tool. Click on the 'Start' button and choose 'All Programs'. Click on the 'System Tools' category and select the 'System Information' option.
Step 9
From the new window, click on the 'Tools' Menu and select 'System Configuration Utility'. Under the 'General' tab, select the 'Normal Startup' option.
Step 10
Click on the 'OK' button and restart the machine as described in Step 2. This will load the system in Normal Mode.

Hello.

Sounds like the Windows Recovery Partition is corrupted or your hard drive may be faulty.

But, first try to boot your system in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly as it boots) and choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good.

If it still doesn't boot properly, try the diagnostics to determine if a hardware problem - boot your system and press F 12 (or F2) repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

How do you put windows into safe mode?


Power on or Restart your computer, keep tapping F8 on the keyboard while it boots up. After few seconds, you'll be taken to the "Advanced Boot Options" with "Safe Mode" in the lists. Use the Up-Down arrow keys to highlight the "Safe Mode" and press enter on the keyboard to confirm the selected boot options. Black Screen with white texts will be displayed on the display, wait for few seconds until you see the windows logon Screen. You'll also see a confirmation message box asking you to confirm to boot into Safe Mode, click "yes" or "Ok" and proceed forward. There now you are in the Safe Mode.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an hp compaq nx4800 laptop which diplats ounce on booting and then off,i dont its problem


try to go in safe mode or choose last known good configration 

In safe mode, go to start->run, type in msconfig, and the system configuration window will come up.

First, try clicking on startup and say disable all, then say apply. Try restarting your computer and loading it normally, and see if it lets you get anywhere. If it does, you can go back into msconfig and start enabling startup items again until you find the one that is messing you up.

If that didn't work, try going back into msconfig, keep all the startup items disabled, and click on the services tab. check the box saying hide all microsoft services, then click on disable all, and hit apply. Try restarting into Windows normally again, if it works, then again, you have to figure out which service/startup items are affecting your boot up.

If that didn't work either, then you may have a graphics card issue. Where does it stop when you try to load Windows normally?

Cannot start in normal mode without blue screen popping up


Duing the startup, can you hit F8 just after the bios shows. You should see a list. If you choose, last known good configuration, what happens? If it blue screen's again, can you startup in safe mode? This is also a item on the list from F8.

Did you install any drivers recently, in the last day or two?

If so, when you boot into safemode, uninstall that driver and try to boot to windows normally.
