From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (free.grisoft.com)

I have my laptop stuck in safe mode. i checked safe boot by mistake, now why cant i get back to undo it?


Hi Steven-
Laptops should return to normal mode upon subsequent start-up. If it does not, when you (re)start your computer, begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly (like a woodpecker). After a few moments, this will bring up a manual start screen (white letters on a black background)-you will see an option to Start Using Windows Normally down toward the bottom of the screen. Using your arrow keys, scroll down to that choice and hit ENTER. Your PC will then boot up in regular mode.

Try restore pc to factory setting. here is the way : http://support.gateway.com/s/software/microsof/Vista/7515910/7515910su12.shtml
Or follow this without picture is the same info:

Restore from Factory Default

The Factory Default installs a new copy of Windows Vista™ on the computer. The installation restores the computer back to the factory installation of Windows Vista with all the drivers and programs that originally came with the computer.
Notes:
  • Be sure that you back up your data files before performing this option. All of your personal data files and applications are erased during the recovery process.
  • Due to the large number of virus and Spyware threats on the Internet, it is recommended that you disconnect all Internet connections before performing the recovery. After the recovery, antivirus and firewall software can be installed, and then the Internet connection can be re-enabled to update the antivirus definitions and perform Microsoft® Windows Updates.
  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, press ALT+F10. The easiest method is to hold down the ALT key and repeatedly press the F10 key. Note: There is no prompt to press Alt+F10.

Hello,

Enter your Windows OS installation CD into your ASUS laptop's CD-ROM, then restart your computer.
When your computer restarts, instead of booting up normally you will now see a Windows "Welcome" screen. Press "Enter" to continue. At the next screen, press "F8" to accept the Windows licensing agreement.

From here, i believe you can continue the process to reload or repair the operating system on your system.

Take care.

Are you running Window XP? Is your computer set to hibernate? If so, you may have a hibernation error...

If I understand correctly, while pressing F8 during bootup you received a message that states:
"System restart has been paused:
Continue with system restart.
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu"

You may wish to read this article about the error. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294427

Then, go ahead and do that second option. What hibernate does is write a big file to the HD with the exact state of Windows. That is a "restoration" file. If hibernate doesn't work, deleting the restoration file will often allow the computer to restart normally.


Good luck! Please post back with your results.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
