Inspiron 6000 connect only in safe mode

Hi I have a very complicated problem with this dell inspiron 6000 would initially connect to the internet fine and now connect only in safe mode with networking support.

Windows XP pro, all updates and the drivers installed and the latest drivers for the hardware as well.

I am connected ATM threw a wired router with the onboard broadcom 440 when in normal mode, I get a DNS error and I am in safe mode without error LOL. I ran ipconfig with each listed switch.

It is setup exactly the same thing in normal mode as in trunk then yes time for a punt and hope for a field goal.  nothing has been changed any software added recent updates installed were the 8th of this month. It comes from spending a couple of days.

I used the winsockfix corrupt but also removed all the network hardware in normal conditions and then restarted in safe and removed there as well. Following is the display of the ipconfig command.

now, you'll notice the wireless is on a different dns so I disabled it because I do not use home wireless. I can still connect if its active but only in safe mode.

So in conclusion, I hope that im missing an obvious problem and that people will notice it for me until I break a toe to try this investment option.

    Hi Malinda1979,

    Since you formatted and installed windows, its non-secure mode. Try to install display drivers. You can check if the display drivers are installed correctly click Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system. Hardware-> display adapters. If you have any yellow exclamation next to any device, you must install the drivers.

    I hope this helps.

    * You need to install all the drivers of your motherboard / driver cd (which came with your pc), including the chipset, sound... etc.

    No doubt it can help you to restore the system to a previous point. If it doesn t help your only option seems to be to reinstall Windows I think. Therefore, you can use the Toshiba Recovery drivers with tools disk :)

  • Windows does not start successfully - only in safe mode.

    I have a 3200 HP with XP Home Edition. Windows starts only in Mode safe when I download Service Pack 3. Is there a way to fix this without doing a complete restore of the system.  I've been running without SP3 because I knew of this issue. Recently, it has been downloaded and now Windows does not start successfully.  Only in Safe Mode.   When I discovered this problem, I was able to fix it, but can't remember if it was fixed without doing a complete restore of the system and starting over.

    After you install SP3, PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode, without giving a clear indication of what is the problem or how to fix it - other than say to check settings in the Panel (not very useful).

    PC is a Compaq Presario desktop with AMD processor, model #: SR1720AN product #: EL540AA-ABG

    I reinstalled the operating system recovery disks, which reformats HD and installed XP with SP2.

    I then installed the SP3 from a flashdrive (361 MB files). Everything went without hiccups, but final restarts, he won't get to normal mode, safe mode only.

    I did it twice.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Here are the specifications of your desktop Compaq Presario SR1720AN. According to the specification, this model comes with a processor AMD and Windows XP Home Edition SP2 installed at the factory. According to your description, it seems that the HP recovery discs may have been poorly photographed for an AMD-based computer. Please see this Microsoft article and this HP document about your problem.

    To solve your problem, please reinstall Windows XP SP2 by booting from your HP recovery disks. After Windows XP SP2 is complete restored and that your computer is operational, download the "Windows XP SP3 with AMD CPU upgrade utility." Run this utility, and then restart your computer. Then download the "Windows XP Service Pack 3 Package of Network Installation" for it professionals. You can also try to use the SP3 Installer on your USB. Install the update to Windows XP SP3 and then restart when you are prompted to.

    This solve your problem?

  • I can only connect to Windows safe mode. I get a blank screen otherwise

    Original title: I can only connect to my computer in safe mode. Start windows normally my screen begins to blink on the logon to the black screen. What should I do?

    I was told it had something to do with internet explorer and that I need to update my windows, but my computer won't let me.

    Safe mode is a number of things.  First, he starts using the clean boot programs needed to operate.  Second, he began to use a screen resolution 'safe' which is supported by all monitors (usually 640 x 480).  Your problem may be due to your video card being assigned to a resolution that your monitor does not support or does not reach.  If it is a recent development, the fastest solution may be to perform a system restore to a time before you had this problem.  You can do safe mode.

    "How to restore Windows XP to a previous state"
      <> >

    Another suggestion is that, after the safe boot mode, change the display resolution (right click Desktop-> properties-> settings tab).

    If those who do not resolve your issue, you can use Microsoft System Configurator, msconfig, to choose what programs launch at startup.

  • Qosmio F20-137 starts only in safe mode

    Hi all

    The other night I tried to update my software to the iphone via itunes on the cell above type and he always took a day and kept failing so thought I would leave until the next day. The next day, when I turned on my laptop, the initial splash screen qosmio came immediately followed by a full page of random letters, numbers and shapes. This step was followed by followed normal loading windows xp still screen by a blue screen that appears very fast with full info on which you can read as it appears only a fraction of a second! Laptop computer then restarts, and the process is repeated, endlessly looped.

    I managed to start the computer in safe mode and ran the diagnostic tool and the hard drive, processor, graphics etc all test OK. I also had the NIC in safe mode and have been able to connect to the internet, etc.

    Is there a possibility that this could be a fault of RAM? Is there no quick check I can do to determine this replacing it? In addition, do not know if it's related but windows asked me at the beginning upward in safe mode to increase the file size of virtual memory page was not big enough.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you very much



    > Is there a possibility that this could be a fault of RAM? Is there no quick check I can do to determine this replacing it?

    You should try utility called Memtest to test the RAM if the test shows that your Ram is ok, reinstall the Os.

  • Can only use safe mode and can not access anything except firefox

    Basically, there are a few days all of a sudden, a box came up saying Windows Explorer has stopped working. No matter what I click, it returns constantly to the rear. Because I use firefox, I can't to anything except this, and I can't get him if I use safe mode.
    It is terribly annoying, I have 6000 + photos and other things I need, i.e. duties.
    How can I fix? I can't use the normal mode, and it's annoying.
    Thanks in advance.

    Then download your data either by:

    1 remove the drive and put it in a box of USB drive or use a USB adapter. Attach it to a computer that is running a working XP/Vista/Windows7 installation. Use the work of Windows Explorer to copy the data to the hard drive of the system to the rescue and burn data on cd or dvd. I prefer not to do it if I know the drive is infected because he has a chance to infect your host system. In these cases, I use #2 below.

    2. you can start the target computer with a Bart PE (if you use XP) or a Linux live CD like Knoppix and retrieve the data in this way. General information about the use of Knoppix for this are:

    You will need a computer with two cd records, one of which is an engraver of CD/DVD OR a USB thumb drive with sufficient capacity to store your data, OR an external hard drive formatted USB FAT32 (not NTFS) *. Download Knoppix .iso image file and create your bootable CD. If you do this in a previous (XP or Vista) operating system, you will need the third burning like Nero, Roxio or the free ImgBurn software (Windows 7 can burn .isos natively). Burn as an image, not in the form of data. Then boot with the CD that you created, and Knoppix will be able to see the files in Windows. If you use the USB key or an external hard disk, right-click on its icon (on the desktop) to get its properties and uncheck "read only". Then click on it to open it. Note that the mouse action by default in the window manager used by Knoppix (KDE) is a simple click to open instead of double-click traditional MS Windows. If you want to burn CD/DVDs, use the K3b program.

    * My understanding is that you can now write on NTFS from Linux partition. If you wish to do this, Google for instructions on the use of the NTFS driver.

    Then do a restore clean factory/install of Windows.

  • Satellite 2450 does not start - only in safe mode


    I'm having a problem with my Satellite 2450 where it is not initialize properly - is stuck in the screen of Windows XP (just continues to scroll through and hangs there).
    I can boot into safe mode.
    Have not had any other problems with it - no errors, do not have installed/uninstalled anything recently.

    Any ideas what could cause this problem?
    Do you think I should use the recovery disk to reinstall the OS? Anything less drastic I can try?

    any advice appreciated,
    Thanks in advance.


    Usually, if the laptop does not start correctly in normal mode, but only in SafeMode because some drivers or / and software applications are false or defective.
    In this case, the recovery procedure should solve this problem.
    If you n t have the Toshiba Recovery CD, you can install from the original CD of Microsoft's operating system, and then you can try to install stuff together from Toshiba (driver, tools)
    These software, you will find on the page of the Toshiba driver.
