Windows loads only in safe mode

When I start my computer it often only starts in safe mode. everything seems fine until I get the sign on hit enter and then the blue screen appears with the word welcome so the cursor turns right and towers, I stop and start in safe mode, no problem, sometimes just restarting on it will load, but not every time.

  • Windows starts only in safe mode after refomatting

    I reformatted computer my husband, during the process of re-setup the computer shut down & restarted in safe mode. I can't the computer to start Windows normally, it starts only in safe mode or at least what looks like safe mode. I am trying to install Windows XP Home Edition. I was not able to install any device to connect to the internet on this subject, so I can install SP3.

    Can someone help me solve this problem please

    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.

    If it's a laptop brand / Office (HP, Dell, Acer, etc), you can visit the manufacturing site and select the model and download the latest orders.

  • How to disable if Windows starts only in safe mode?

    Unfortunately, my Windows 7 has become unstable again.

    Windows starts in safe mode.

    I would like to reinstall Windows, but... of course, Acrobat will not deactivate this mode.

    So, I would like to know how to disable Acrobat Reader in safe mode.

    Help, please...

    Acrobat allows a few activations due scenarios just like that.  In the case that, after you reinstalled Windows, Acrobat you indicates that you have too many activations, you can contact our support team, and they can work with you to get the matter sorted.

  • 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.

  • Windows 7 stuck in safe mode

    P7-1170 windows 7 - open only in safe mode, even after several attempts to reboot-cannot open many programs - I started the restore point, did not help, but apparently the loss of some data. How can I open in normal mode? (F8 key has nothing)

    Help!

    Hello

    Here's something to check.

    Let it load to PC mode without failure.  Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In the run box, type msconfig and press ENTER.  In the System Configuration window, click the Startup tab and look to see if there is a check mark in the box to start - if there is, click on the checkbox uncheck the box, then click on apply to save the change.  Restart the PC and see if it will boot normally.

    Kind regards

  • I want the cursor to be in the address bar when you create a new window; It works for new tabs and a new private window, but not in safe mode.

    I tried following the advice offered in the different threads bit I found on this but nothing works out. I want the cursor to be in the address bar when I open a new window or when firefox opens without restoring a previous session. I solved the problem for new tabs via subject: config, but it does not work for the new windows. I tried safe mode and the problem persists. In a new private window, the cursor is in the address bar.

    A new window opens the homepage (default: subject: House) and not the new tab page (default: subject: newtab).

    Some of the built-in pages set the focus to the search bar on the web page, just like the Google site only.

    You can use a bookmark in the bookmarks toolbar that opens the subject: blank page.
    If you hold down the SHIFT key when you click this bookmark, then you open a new widow with this page.
    Otherwise, you need to set the home page to about: blank or on the point: about to have easy access to all the pages.

  • Satellite Pro L300 - commissioned only in safe mode

    Hay, my Satellite Pro L300 computer can be started in SafeMode only because if I start it normally it access to the desktop and then freezers.

    Can someone help with this problem?

    Hey Buddy,

    If the computer starts only in safe mode, this means that something has confused the OS

    Since when have you noticed the problem?
    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 :)

  • How can I start/re-start Windows professional XP in safe MODE

    How can I start/re-start Windows professional XP in safe MODE? Aid filw I get only instructed on XP Home Edition and the buttons and it tells you to follow the guests do not appear in the professional edition. I need the instructions for Pro.  Can someone help me with this?

    Original title: Safe Mode

    You can start either home or Pro in SafeMode by this technique...

    Keep F8 hitting twice a second immediately after you have switched on the PC. You should get a boot menu where safe mode is selectable using the up/down arrow keys.

    Or, use the msconfig utility. When you do it this way, Windows starts in SafeMode permanently until you reverse the changes in msconfig...

    • Click Start
    • Click on run
    • Type msconfig and press enter
    • Click on the CHEST. INI tab
    • Check the box for/SafeBoot
    • Click OK
    • Restart the PC when prompted

  • After you have installed SP3 (on XP with SP2), the PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode

    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?

  • My computer is stuck in the loop "Update Configuration". Boots only in safe mode.

    My computer is stuck in the loop "Update Configuration". Boots only in safe mode. I tried to do a system restore, but an error message appears that says:

    To perform an offline system restore, you must specify which Windows installation you want to restore. For example, if the installation is in "C:\Windows:" should be restored, enter the following command: rstrui.exe/OFFLINE:C\Windows

    I typed in the "run" command, and it didn't work either. VIsta came installed on the computer, so I don't have a disc to insert and reboot with. Help, please!

  • Only in the last days, Windows will ONLY open in Mode without failure. I don't know why?

    Only in the last days, Windows will ONLY open in Mode without failure. (I have made some changes myself)

    I tried everything I knew how to do, without success.

    It must be clarified...

    Which of the following statements apply to your problem:

    1 when you started the computer you tried to log in normal mode, it wouldn't, and you needed to go to safemode manually in order to identify you.
    If so, was there an error message?

    2. When you start the computer, it went automatically in safe mode.
    If so, try this...

    Login in safe mode > start button > in the search box, type msconfig > Enter > at the top, click on start > make sure that there is NO check mark in front of Safe Boot > make sure that there is NO check mark anywhere in this window > click OK when finished.

    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.
