"Safe Mode" is from Windows, it is a way to start your system if there are conflicts preventing you from starting it normally. You can use it to have Windows return you to an earlier setup that might work.
You might try starting in safe mode and then resetting to an earlier date. continuously press the F8 key till safe mode comes up. Should com up in a few seconds. I am not certain you can restore in safe mode but it will not harm your system to try. Go to windows start and then programs look for restore. reset the system to an earlier date.
I would try to un-install the software in safe mode first, if successful restart the computer to see if it will start normally, if it does it will save you a reformat, or you can attempt to restore the computer to an earlier date.
It sounds like windows doesn't like a driver that zone alarm installed... when the PC starts, just tap on F8 a few times until the screen pops up to offer you to go into safe mode... select "Last known configuration" (i.e. the configuration that worked prior to installing zone alarm...
it should reboot and all should be well...
Check the version of Zone Alarm to ensure it is compatible with Windows 7...
Go to the safe mode option then once there go to start-run-then type in MSCONFIG then go to system recovery then go to recovery for an earlier time. This will reset your Windows to an earlier time you may be able to salvage it without having to re-install the operating system. F8 also will bring you to "Safe Mode" if not do it through the Dos command screen. If this does not work then you might consider re-installing Windows again. John
You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.
Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.
your operating system may have been corrupted , try 2 go 2 safe mode if you can and restore your computer at earlier time by system restore. if this doesnt solve your problem you can repair it using your installer.
When starting the computer tap the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
Or you could do a system restore to a earlier date when your computer was working fine.
