Try a System Restore.
You can do this in safe mode.
Click Start> right click My Computer, from the dropdown menu select Properties. In the new window that opens select System Restore from the top tab on the left, now follow thye wizard to restore you machine to a date and time before this problem started. If you can see one in the list of dates available select a System Checkpoint.

    You will need your original installation disk or a disk that matches your COA sticker on your machine NOT a recovery disk.

    Using an original Windows installation disk you can do a repair/install without loosing any of your personal files, after the repair you will have to reupdate all your updateable programs like Windows and Antivirus software.

    Follow the instructions on this site to the letter:

How do I turn off safe mode my kindle fire


Safe mode means that problem has occurred when the tablet tried to "Boot" on. You must find and fix whatever that problem is to go out of safe mode.

Dell demention 3000 stuck in safe mode changed with new battery reconnected all connections holding on the on buttons for 10 seconds but nothing works can anyone help.


If it stuck in safe mode, then it may be a software issue. Re-install the operating system because the fact that you were able to access safe mode means that it is just a software issue.

My Logitech Remote 550 is Locked in the Safe Mode. How do I get it our of Safe Mode.


Doing a firmware upgrade is the BEST way to recover from Safe Mode. A remote may go into safe mode itself for a variety of reasons.

However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.

Hope this helps

Harmony 550 in safe mode


Hi There,
To get out of safe mode, do a firmware update from your PC. This will install the latest firmware and your configuration. Safe mode is a bootstrap designed to recover from firmware corruption issues so about the only thing it knows how to do is reload firmware.
However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.
