In safe mode, right click on the C drive (or whatever the drive with the OS instaled is) and select repair problems, reboot and try again. Starting in safe mode is usually caused by a device or driver that the laptop does not like, review what you have installed and remove it and see if that works

Daughter reset my password to log on and forgot what she put I can't get into the laptop now.


Restart your PC, and hit the F8 keyboard button over and over You will
enter the Windows Boot Menu, Once there you will have different choices,
choose Safe Mode with Networking. Windows will start in Safe Mode.
Then look for the default Administrator account, the blank password should be correct, If not attempt to use admin with no password/ possible admin for the user and password. It should boot in safe mode where you will be able to edit your original account under, Start > Control Panel >
User Accounts and Family Safety!

Best of Luck!

Laptop presario cq60. turn on. comes to screen stating windows files may be corrupt, and i have the option to run in safe mode to correct the files, or start up normally. normal start up will only take...


If you have the OS disk, you can try refreshing the OS. That is not the same as a reinstall. You might also have a disk that is going/gone bad. I'd check that first using a disk diagnostic program.

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Restarting


Try going into safe mode and see if the machine will keep running. If it does then start disabling start up programs until you find the culprit. If it won't keep running in safe mode then suspect hardware fault and take it in for repair.

Windows xp hangs at boot up.Shows background theme but takes forever just for icons to show up. Using ibm Thinkpad T42. Don't dare use any registry fix, last time it trashed my hard drive.


your symptoms sound as if you have a trojan or virus running in the background, i assume you have an upto date antivirus programme, if so start your pc in safe mode (press F8 key on startup) and then select start windows in safe mode, when you select your operating system, it will load the minimum of drivers and give an administrator account.

Click on this account and then run the antivirus and spyware programme, then restart your pc.
