Windows 2000 pro can't safe mode exit

Stupidly went into safe mode to try and find solution to D:/not accessible error message and now stuck in safe mode, have tried to boot normally and all the other configurations in safe mode no joy. PC just boots into safe mode each time.

As msconfig not on win 2k downloaded version and installed on the pc and went through options ie boot ini tab and make sure safe mode not checked but still no joy. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

Before you can boot from cd, u need to set the cmos boot choice so system attempts to boot from the cd , FIRST, then the hard drive,,, default is ,,floppy HD, then cd,,
rearrange to have cd choice first,,
once booted from the cd, delete , present partitions, then create a new one,, or better yet 2 so defraging the OS is faster.
you will be asked about partitions during win install,,,set asside 10g for the operating system

What makes you say it's in safe mode? Does it tell you, or are you assuming it's in safe mode because of the resolution? Try adjusting the resolution...

    Don't reinstall yet! Whenever you suspect a corrupt system, open a command prompt and type sfc then click ok. (On an xp system, type sfc /scannow). This checks for wrong versions of system files or corrupted files. Rarely do you have to reinstall if you know what you're doing!

The system is corrupted, that is the reason why it starts only in safe mode.
Easiest way to proceed is reinstalling Windows 2000 pro as an update installation.
To do this start a Windows installation from Windows (not from dos booting with disk inside).
Do not do new installation, do upgrade installation, it will preserve all your data, and most of your software and settings.
Do a backup of all your data first.

    I mean instead of booting with disk inside you put Windows install disk after Windows has started on your pc, and start disk under windows, not as boot.

Start your computer in safe mode , if you are running windows xp then press and hold F8 key when DMI pool data is shown which gives you a menu from where you can select safe mode and uninstall escan from there. Worst case start in safe mode command prompt and type in

1.) cd c:\windows\temp
2.) del escan*.*
3.) This should ask for a confirmation if you want to delete the files or not. Press Y.
4.) type in exit to leave windows command prompt and restart windows.

(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"

An error to my microsoft


Try putting the computer into safe mode.

To do this shut the computer down.

As the computer gets ready to start booting up, hold down on the F8 key.

At the menu, move the arrow keys on your keyboard to safe mode and press enter.

Once Windows finishes booting up in safe mode, restart the computer in normal mode.

This can repair the message.
