I have a mini hp 10 inch.  I want to get back to factory conditions or at least start in safe mode.  Help, please

Hi, Patty Young. Need you to restore your computer settings or the recovery disk or your computer must have a recovery partition. To start in safe mode, you simply press the F8 key when you see the initial screen and then choose Startup mode in the Advanced menu options. I honestly recommend however, that can you tell me what your question is so that we can try to resolve without the need of recovery.

  • Pavilion mini 300-010 in: no display after starting in safe mode

    Recently (2 weeks) bought the Pavilion Mini Office 300-010 and was well before decide me Flex my curiosity.

    the office is connected to my monitor VGA Samsung using the HDMI-VGA connector since the release of funds has no VGA or DVI - I usage options.

    the part where my curiosity killed the cat, was when I decided to start the winodws 8.1 in safe mode and see what happens.

    pressing F8 did not help that the load of the OS had no delay (or maybe it's the UEFI BIOS) and so I decided to put safe mode with "a minimum without network option 'using 'msconfig'." Performed a reboot assuming I see safemode and all I got is a black screen. Noticing that the driver for the conversion of the display cannot be loaded in safe mode and now I'm stuck because I do not have a p LCD monitor that plugs directly into.

    I checked the monitor VGA just in case, and it seems to work very well with my laptop. . Done reboot "N"-number of times and the result is the same. ".

    is there a way to get out of safe mode without actually doing a HDMI compatible monitor by just using the keyboard?

  • I have windows xp after the installation of service pack 3 I can only start in safe mode

    I have windows XP after the installation of service pack 3 I can only start in safe mode?


    ·         You get the error message?

    ·         What happens when you try to start in normal mode?

    Method 1

    Windows XP can in every start Safe Mode by default. Even if you select the option Start Windows normally, it always starts in Mode without failure. IOW, you can't get out of safe mode.

    This happens if the switch/SafeBoot is added to the Boot.ini file. / SafeBoot parameter forces a boot in safe mode by using the specified parameters. The available parameters are:

    (a) minimal

    (b) network

    (c) safeboot: minimal (alternateshell)

    For more information about the boot.ini switches, see visualization and correction of the settings of the boot on x 86 systems


    (a) click Start, run and type MSCONFIG

    (b) click the Boot.ini tab

    (c) If you have a dual-boot system, select the entry that is appropriate under the [operating systems]

    (d) in section downstairs, Startup Options uncheck / hisFEBOOT

    (e) click OK

    (f) restart Windows

    The entry/SafeBoot are removed from the Boot.ini file.

    Method 2:

    If the above method is not the cause, it seems that Service Pack 3 is not installed correctly.

    Step 1: You try to run the system restore from safe mode that will repair return the computer to the point while it was working fine.

  • I have Windows XP 32 bit and you want to get 64-bit Windows 7, how do I do this, 32-bit to 64-bit?

    I have Windows XP 32 bit and you want to get 64-bit Windows 7, how do I do this, 32-bit to 64-bit?

    The upgrade to Windows XP?

    Please read these instructions carefully and completely before you begin installing Windows 7: there are important steps that you must follow to upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 in order to preserve your files and settings.

    Before you begin, you'll need to backup all your data to an external storage device, and you will need all the installation discs for the programs that you want to keep. Please make sure that you have an external hard drive (see details below).

    More detailed instructions are available at windows.microsoft.com/upgrade-windows-xp. Here are the basic steps.

    1. start Windows Upgrade Advisor (winodws.microsoft.com/upgradeadvisor) to see if there are known issues that may affect the installation and the question of whether you should install the version of 32 or 64 bit Windows 7.

    2 back up your files and settings on an external hard drive using Windows Easy Transfer (windows.microsoft.com/windows-easy-transfer). If you do not have an external hard drive, you will not be able to use Windows Easy Transfer. Alternatively, you can copy the files you want to keep on a USB stick, CD or DVD.

    3. you will need to manually reinstall your programs, such as Microsoft Office, after I installed Windows 7. Gather the installation for your programs and all partner/license product key discs. You may be able to download programs from the Internet. For example, Windows Live Messenger can be installed from the download.live.com/messenger.

    4. Insert the Windows 7 DVD in your PC. When asked "which type of installation you want. Click on "Custom (advanced)."

    5. when Windows 7 is installed, use Windows Easy Transfer to restore your files and settings.

    If you are not comfortable Windows 7 installation, check with a local retail or the services of the PC company store to see if they offer upgrade services. Andre Da Costa http://adacosta.spaces.live.com http://www.activewin.com

  • "Windows Vista Security Center" close browser windows, precise I have a virus, and now no programs will be opened. Windows does not start in safe mode, and all the system restore points have already disappeared.


    I have a Dell laptop under Windows Vista Premium. I got it for about three years, and he is upset enough ok tonight. In the middle of browsing the internet, check my email, etc., all but one of my browser windows close at random, and a message appears "windows vista Security Center" whenever I try to open a new window, blocking of the site and to say that the site is dangerous and my system has been infiltrated by a Trojan horse. Then he starts the scan and says that I must buy the full to get everything to work again. I closed everything, since I already have McAfee antivirus and internet security, but it does not, and neither did any other progams. I tried restarting in safe mode to restore a backup point, but Windows does not open in safe mode, rather stick for half an hour in the middle of loading. When I managed to start windows in normal mode, I found that all my past restore points had been erased.

    This happened to someone else, and it is fixable without wiping everything?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Emma,

    This could be due to a virus on your computer.  Try to make a virus on your computer scan to check if your computer is infected.
