Please help!!! How do I boot my Lenovo into Safe Mode? The F8 key doesn't bring anything up. I do have a "one key recovery," which takes me into a "setup utility" but nowhere is there "safe mode." I'v


You might try going back into your setup and disabling Secure Boot, and look for "verbose" or "full" mode for startup - this will print the entire startup sequence on boot - valuable for troubleshooting hardware and some software issues.

As for the ability to boot to Safe Mode - the process is different for different OS - you can find detailed step for starting in Safe Mode in Win8/8.1 here

Method 1:
Step 1: Start your computer in safe mode with networking and check the functionality.

Advanced startup options (including safe mode)

If it works fine in safe mode with networking, perform clean boot to find the root cause.
Step 2: If it works fine in safe mode with networking, perform clean boot to find the root cause.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista or Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

NOTE: After you check the functionality in clean boot configure Windows to use Normal startup using the step 7 suggested in the link mentioned above.
Note: Do Not disable wireless services, if any.

Help! My Laptop Acer Aspire One stuck at window logo loading Anyone please, help my acer aspire one stuck at window xp logo loading. I try everthing in F8 button, it didn't work, even in safe mod


oh a fun one. Reset your bios to defaults. if that doesn't work then try a windows disk boot up. if that doesn't work you're screwed.

if you want any of your files from the computer first pull out the hdd buy a cord and transfer them to another computer.

When I turn on my Dell Latitude D600 PC, the windows xp loading page appears. After it has loaded the screen turns black and does not make any further progress.


It appears that your display works fine until Windows XP loads. Try tapping the key when powering on the laptop. Select boot in safe mode and see if the laptop works.Here's a description of safe mode by Microsoft.

Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.

If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.

If your display works in safe mode then you have a video driver issue or virus or software issue.

I have an hp v3000 labtop ....... It starts up and first says something about imminent failure and to press f1........ after that its loads the windows screen then flashes blue really quickly and...


This means that your hard drive has failed -- it is no longer imminent.
Every time that you allow it to try to boot from now on you're allowing the drive to eat itself up more and more. If you want to have a hard drive recovery service be able to get anything off of it, stop trying to boot from it any more.
Take the computer in to a service center and have them replace the drive and re-install the operating system. Hopefully you have a backup of your data, because otherwise you've probably lost it all.

Unable to paly sound in safemode.


HI,
You would not be able to play any sound in safe mode. As including the sound card , no other drivers get loaded. Drivers are peice of software that gets installed on windows to make your audio work. Safe mode is a diagnostic mode, so none of the drivers load in safe mode. Would request you to restart the computer in normal mode and then check for the sound

Thanks

Cannot start up laptop; may be a virus


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
