Computer starts in safe mode

My computer failed and would not run about 2 months ago, I have left it unplugged until yesterday. Now it runs but only in safe mode. It may be attempting to fix the problem but I don't know what to do. If you can let me know what my next step should be I would appreciate it. I am now using a computer at work.

Adding more to your solution thegateway

in this case if the person can't get anything but safe mode , they may need to reinstall windows

attempts to use last known good configuration has NEVER worked for me.

windows is not perfect , and when you can only get safe mode , you're in deep trouble

but the system restore is good , it can restore the files needed to get it back to windows

Start the computer and keep tapping F8 key
When the menu comes up scroll to the last good configuration that worked and press enter.
Hopefully that will work.

Hp dv6000 wont start up


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this helps also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer
also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now to check how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all of your computers details another way to check how much RAM you have click start all programs accessories system tools system information all of your computers information will be there try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on a restart don

Getting late started and many virus


If your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
1.If your computer is on, shut it down
2.Power on your computer
3.Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
4.In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
5.Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
6.Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
7.When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
8.Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
9.Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program's normal steps to run a virus scan
10.After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
11.Close out of your anti virus software
12.Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.Thank you for using FIXYA.

Restart the computer. If you are already in Windows, you can do this from the Windows Start menu, go to Turn off computer and click Restart. As the computer restarts, watch for a progress bar at the bottom of the screen. press F8 about once every second. Immediately press F8 before the progress bar reaches the right side of the screen. From the Windows Start-up menu, using the arrow keys highlight Safe Mode and press Enter. Wait for your desktop to appear, where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to make the necessary repairs eg: click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive then you might test all leads that are attached from your motherboard to your hard drive or just replace them they could be faulty
hope this helps

It sound like windows did an update taht had something to do with your motherboard. You can view your updates by going to your "control panel" and selecting your Windows Update (icon). Right click on it and open. Click on "view update history" at the upper left part of the window, then see if any of the listed updates involved your motherbaord. If so, click on "installed updates troubleshoot..." at the top of your screen. This will show all recent updates. You can click on and uninstall the update you think is causing the problem. You can always get it back by running check for updates and reinstalling. Another option would be to do a "system restore" back to before the problem exixted.
Shut down your system normally and restart by pressing powre button on your tower. A screen will come up where you can arrow up to "start in safe mode". Once your screen has come up, it will take a couple minutes, A window will pop up about safe mode. Scroll down in window to "what is safe mode" and click on it. Another window will pop up with, scroll down to it, "start safe mode". Click on that. This will take a couple minutes. Another window will pop up about the system restore where it will ask you to start safe mode with their recommended time. There will be an option box "next". Click on that and a window will come up whrere you should be able to scroll to your update. Click on that and it will restoe to that time. You will lose any other updates done prior to that so when finished, run check updates again but, don't allow the one taht created your problem.

I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing items for you to check and or try.
Try booting into safe mode and see if the same thing happens.
( F-8 )
Choose safe mode with network configuration installed.
If the unit runs without shutting down, it is a program conflict and not a hardware issue.
Run this safe mode start up, with no external devices connected.
Note... Remove any Flash Cards or USB devices, CD or DVD's .
If the unit runs without shutting down in safe mode, you may want to run a complete restoration of software.
Hope this helps.

Problem regarding booting


due to the increase in temperature inside the cpu for the protection of the motherboard and components it might not be getting started ..

this happens if the processor fan is not running properly or if it stucked due to some dust or obstacles ...

try cleaning it after separating heat sink and processor ....

after refitting the processor trying booting it should work ....

if needed replace the processor fan ..
