Trouble exiting safe mode

I originally had a problem, with a couple of errors flashing up when my computer had finished booting up. (windows\system32igfxres) in four boxes popping up, as i'm not totally sure what these mean, i did a scan with my norton security, and no problems, i then typed up the error heading into ask jeeves which came up with software registerfix, which i then i then bought and installed, as they'd scanned 148 errors and admittedly the internet moved as fast as when i'd first bought my comp, however after restarting the same four boxes came back up, now after hitting repair computer modein my windows box, i'm now in safe mode and have no idea what to do?? ...

Factory restore


Dell Dimension computers have a built-in PC restore system that allows you to quickly restore the PC to its original factory settings.
The PC restore is located in a hidden partition of the PC's hard drive and contains a copy of the computer's original factory installed software.
There are two different ways to restore the Dimension's settings depending on which operating system your computer is running.

Windows XP

Disconnect all peripheral equipment that is attached to your computer such as printer, scanner, external hard drive and memory sticks.
Restart the computer.
After the Dell screen appears on the monitor, hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "F11" key.
If the Windows XP screen appears before you can finish this step, wait for the computer to finish rebooting and restart the computer again.


Highlight "Restore" in the Dell PC Restore window by using the tab button.
Hit "Enter."


Highlight "Confirm" in the restore warning box by using the tab button.
Hit "Enter."
This will start the system restore process.
Do not attempt to turn off the computer during this process or vital system files may be damages and you will not be able to restart your computer.


Click "Finish" in the box that notifies you that the restoration has been successful.


Hit "Enter" to restart the computer.
The computer has been restored to the original factory settings.

Windows Vista

Disconnect all peripheral equipment that is attached to your computer such as printer, scanner, external hard drive and memory sticks.



Restart the computer.
After the Dell screen appears on the monitor, press the "F8" key.
If the Windows Vista screen appears before you can finish this step, wait for the computer to finish rebooting and restart the computer again.


Highlight "Repair Your Computer" by using the down arrow key in the Advanced Boot window.
Hit the "Enter" key.


Click "Next" after selecting a language. Log into the computer as an administrator.
"OK." Choose "Dell Factory Restore."
Click "Next."


Check "Yes" next to the reformat the hard drive and restore factory settings option.
Click "Next" to start the restoration process.
Do not attempt to turn off the computer during this process or vital system files may be damages and you will not be able to restart your computer.


Click "Finish" in the box that notifies you that the restoration has been successful.
The computer will automatically restart itself to its original factory settings.

0x8007045d error the request could not be preformed because of an I/O device error


I'd suggest you to connect your external hard drive to a different USB port and try copying and check if that fixes the issue.

Also, boot into safe mode and try copying the same and check if you can successfully complete the copy operation without any errors.

Refer the below link for more details on how to start computer in safe mode:

Start your computer in safe mode
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode


If you're able to successfully copy the file in safe mode, it indicates that one of the third party application or start up item is causing the error.

You could put your system in clean boot state and check if any third party application or any services is causing the issue and hence the error.

Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may go ahead and disable or uninstall the same.

Follow the below steps to put your computer in clean boot state:

1. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.
2. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
4. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
5. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Once the system is in clean boot state, try to copy the files and check if you're able to copy files without any errors.

Refer the link below for more details:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135


After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

1. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.
3. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

On my everex impact pc window was updated , while windows was starting and now i receive the following error message when booting up "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered error. windows...


If I undrestand this correctly, this was a windows update? In some caese after a windows update, a restart is required and during shutdown and restart it configures that update. If the computer is shut down, "unexpectedly" or shut down before update is finished, then the update won't complete. If this is what happened, shut down computer by pressing power button on front of tower. Start system back up using on/off button. When screen comes up with options to start mormally or..., arrow up to "start in safe mode". Wait a couple of minutes and a window will come up "what is safe mode". Scroll down in that window until you see "what is safe mode", highlighted in different color, and click on that. It will take a couple of minutes, and another window will come up where you can scroll down to "start safe mode", click on this. This will take a couple of minutes and a window will come up with a suggested restart time and you will see a box "next". Click on the box. You should see the update in the list of things that come up. Click on the process just prior to the update and click "start or next". This will take a little time and will restart your system. When it comes up, let it think until you see a message "system restore complete", click on ok. Now you can click on start, find control panel and click on to open. In your list find "windows udate". Right click on and open. At the top left of screen you will see "check for updates" and click on that. It should recommend the update you just removed. If it it "important" check box, and install. Restart when update is finished and give it the time to do it's configurations.
If I misunderstood your problem you can let me know at "add a comment" or try reposting. Make sure you clarify between a "windows update" or a "windows upgrade".

Conputer is shutting down but it does not shut down


Hold the power button until the computer shuts down.
Restart and press F8 key repeatedly until you get a start up menu.
Select safe mode from the menu.
After the computer boots up, and you are at the desktop, go to my computer and select properties of the C drive (your system drive). Select tools from the tabs, then defrag. When defrag finishes, select check drive for errors and select the box, to automatically fix errors, and then ok, and yes at next window, allowing the computer to schedule the error check at next boot.
Reboot and allow computer to scan the drive.
After it finishes, you will continue into windows. Allow windows to boot. After it finishes, attempt to shut down again.
If it works, you fixed it. If not, you have a driver or program that will not quit, and you will have to research further to find out what is running and why it won't quit.

Hi there

Thanks for posting your problem on fixya

I give you some steps for repair hard drives please follow all the steps very carefully :

Check disk

REPAIR Hard drive - THROUGH CHEKDISK command.
------------------------------------------------------
Step One: Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties".

Step Two: When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error

Checking" section.

Step Three: When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now".

Step Four: A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished, it will restart into Windows automatically.

De fragment

Click on start >> Programms >>accessories >> System tools >> Defrag

Defrag your hard drive >> This may take some time.

After this system would be slow for couple of hours and then would be efficient.

please open your antivirus and do a complete scan and fix the errors.

Pls rate this solution according to its use in you. it will be much appreciated........

Thanks
