computer freezes in regular mode but not safe mode

Question: computer freezes in regular mode but not safe mode

I am running vista 64bit after my son in law tried to install a game on my computer it started locking up. I can boot into reg mode and everything is fine for about three minutes, but then it locks up and nothing works except the mouse pointer moves but you can't click on anything or type. When I boot into safe mode with networking everything seems fine, I can get on the internet and do anything you can normally do in safe mode.

Preferred Solution: computer freezes in regular mode but not safe mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
I have this problem with my laptop - sometimes I cannot login - after choosing the user the screen freezes or after logging in it works only for a few minutes in regular mode (I can do things over those minutes like open firefox, but I cannot open folders, sometimes I can open the task manager or even some programs) but then it freezes and I have to shutdown the computer manually by pushing the power button. When I tried pushing crtl+alt+del I got a message "The logon process was unable to display security and logon options when ctrl+alt+delete was pressed. If the operatin system does not respond, press esc or restart the computer by using the power switch". I don't know if this helps, but I try to add as much as I can. Sorry it it's not relevant - my knowledge about computers and IT is minimal.
The computer runs fine in safe mode.
So I tried system restore to a week before when the computer was still fine and it didn't work. So I reinstalled a graphics driver (Intel HD Graphics Driver) as I found on the internet that similar problems got fixed by reinstalled videocard drivers. And it worked, everything started to run smoothly again in the regular mode. As normally I allowed windows updates and after restarting my computer, the problems came back.
I assumed that the problem was the updates so I uninstalled most of them (KB2930275; KB2923961; KB2925418; KB2929755; KB2929733 and KB2918077) but the problem was still there and I was unable to unin... Read more

Hi, I'm having some problems fixing my bleeping computer (Windows 10 desktop computer, to be specific) and could use some assistance.
 
On Friday 15 December 2017, my computer ran fine when I woke up and used it for a few minutes in the morning. Before that date, I had very few problems with my computer running; the biggest issue was some freezing occurring while playing games demanding on processing power such as Civilization 5. However, I don't believe that is related to my current issue, as I last played it on Sunday 26 November 2017, and I had no issues with it on that day.
 
When I returned home later that day (15 December), I found my computer stuck on a blue screen. I'm not sure quite what happened, as my computer was not used during the day at all. I restarted several times, but I was not able to even make it to the user login screen before getting a blue screen. I've received error code 0xc0000142 for every blue screen.
 
Startup repair did nothing to resolve the situation. I am still able to run my computer in safe mode with networking and that's how I'm writing this post. For the past two weeks, I've been using safe mode to use my computer. I've looked online for solutions, but haven't gotten much. I've had some problems in safe mode with random freezes, but at least the computer runs most of the time, although with limited functionality.
 
My research led me to trying Windows + R and opening msconfig.exe and disabling all services that were not... Read more

Answer:BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

If you work OK in Safe Mode - but not in normal mode, it's most likely a software problem.
Hardware problems are possible, but nowhere near as likely as a software problem.
 
First thing I'd suggest is trying a clean boot.  It's similar to Safe Mode - but works in normal mode by disabling stuff.
It's also similar to disabling the services - but you'll disable more when doing a clean boot.
If a clean boot fixes the problem - then the problem was caused by one (or more) of the things you disabled for the clean boot.
Then it's just a matter of re-enabling things one at a time until you find the problem.
Perform a Clean Boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If that stops the problem, then re-enable things a few at a time until you figure out what's causing it.
Then uninstall the problem program (from Start...Settings...Apps...Apps & Features - if you don't find it there, check the right sidebar for Programs and Features and see if you can remove it from there).
 
Backup your stuff now.  There's no telling exactly what the problem is - so a backup is the best way to be prepared in case the system dies on you suddenly.
 
If this doesn't work, then post back and we'll ask for some reports to try and figure out what's going on.
Good luck!

I am running using Dell Inspiron with windows vista. A couple days ago, I got on the computer and then it froze, at fist the program I was using froze, and then I got a circle next to the arrow, but could still move the arrow, then the arrow stops moving. CTL ALT DEL does not work, so i must do a hard reboot, try to boot in safe mode and all the files come up but then it goes no where and the computer either restarts or I reboot it.

I have run all types of tests and nothing comes up. Today I got the blue screen of death twice, but after reboot, it goes away. I do not have a Boot Disk and have tried all the tests in the F8 command. Currently I am running an expanded memory test, but figured I would get this out there before I go insane.

Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated.

Hi All,

Been having this problem since yesterday. Whenever I start up windows, it freezes after a couple of minutes. Tried going into safe mode to run virus scan (Avira and Malwarebytes) but both freeze halfway through scanning and I have to do a hard reset. No idea at all what is wrong with it.

Also find that when I try to open Adobe PDF Reader, it shows this message when I am in normal mode. 'The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed.' Right after that, it freezes. Not sure if that's relevant.
Please help me! Thanks a lot in advance!

Please do not post your Hijack this logs here. Due to Forum Rules we cannot assist in malware removal here. Have you tried a different browser (Chrome, Firefox etc)? When you say IE only works in Safe Mode with Networking, Do you mean you boot the computer normally and use IE (safe mode) or are you booting the computer into Safe Mode with Networking? In other words you can't boot normally?

Hi all!

Today I started up my computer (an XP machine running SP3) and after it went through the BIOS, it showed the Windows startup screen (the Windows logo with the blue progress bar), but when that was done, it went to a black screen and won't do anything else.

I restarted and tried a few different things; Start Windows Normally, and Last Known Good Configuration both got me the same black screen.

CheckDisk ran, and it made it to the end, but froze when it said "please wait while your computer reboots" ... after waiting more than 10 minutes, i hit reset and tried to reboot it myself. It did the same Bios-Windows-blackscreen thing as before.

I also tried booting into Safe Mode, which DID work, and when I got in there I tried to do a System Restore (two, actually... for two previous dates) but both did nothing to resolve the problem. I tried simply copying my "important" files to my external HD (which it sees), but it won't copy in Safe Mode

When loading in Safe Mode, the driver list pauses and says "press esc to cancel loading of SPTD.sys" but I've tried it both ways and it doesn't make a difference that I can see.

I tried using my XP CD to boot from, which takes me into the Recovery Console, and I chose to hit "R" to repair, but when it asks me what drive I want to login to (which is C:) I don't really know what to do from there. I haven't booted from a CD before, so I assumed it would run a "Repair Wizard&... Read more

Just a general question:1. When doing a routine scan for viruses and malware, etc. (and just generally speaking), is it better to scan in safe mode or regular mode? 2. If you scan in safe mode, is there anything that wouldn't show up (that you could potentially miss) that *would* show up in regular mode? 3. Or is safe mode just better all around, and everything is covered (plus more) that you'd find with scanning in regular mode?(I'm referring to scanning with AVG A/V, AVG Anti-Spyware, SpyBot (old version), and Ad-Aware SE.)Thanks!

Answer:Better To Scan In Safe Mode Or Regular Mode For Virus/malware?

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. This means some of the programs that normally run when Windows starts will not run.The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Malware writers create programs that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using "Safe Mode" reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using your anti-virus and anti-malware tools, in "Safe Mode" also speeds up the scanning process. Read "Beginners Guides: Windows XP Safe Mode Explained" and "What is 'Safe Mode' used for and why?"

I started getting BSOD's right after login after boot up. I get a number of different ones and occasionally some repeat. When I come up in safe mode (with and without networking) I can function as long as I don't do too much. I've drive tested my system drive and I also did a memory test. I've also not made any changes recently. If I do too much it will BSOD though. When I start copying files off my system drive to my storage array, I BSOD if I'm doing more than a couple gigs.

I can't seem to get a consistent BSOD. I've listed most of the ones below, I haven't caugh them all.


Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.Memory Management with Stop 1a
Cache Manager with 0x34 I think
Stop with 0X24
Stop with a 0x7f

Answer:Different BSOD's upon login in regular mode and in safe mode

Lots of crashes but they are not showing any probable cause.

Do these, as a test:

Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Stop nVidia automatic driver update:
Open nVidia control center.
Help> Updates. It will open the nVidia updates window.
Click the preferences tab.
Uncheck "Automatically check for updates"
Apply > OK.
If the crashes continue to occur after doing these, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

My computer is a HP Probook 4710s running windows xp professional w/ SP3
When I started it up it was very slow, did not make the chiming welcome sound and none of the icons or taskbar came up.
I hit ctrl+alt+del and explorer.exe was there but clearly not doing anything.  Only 21 total processes were running.  I rebooted in safemode and all of my icons appeared.  I tried a system restore but it did not work.  I can reboot in safemode with networking but the following error message appears.  "Runtime Error!  Program  c:\ProgramFiles\Hewlett-Packard\IAM\Bin\AsGHost.exe    This application has requested to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for further infomation."  I had contacted microsoft's tech support who thought the problem might be a corrupted user profile, so we attempted to create a new one and copy the files over to it, but the copy never worked and would fail part way through saying, "cannot access files" and then stop.  So those profiles were deleted and now I'm back to not being able to boot up with just the plain old default ADMIN user.  I don't want to shut down my computer since I'm worried if I do, it will stop booting up in safe mode too.  It's done that before, it cycles through all the files and then hangs up for about 3 minutes and automatically reboots.  Any suggestions?

I have an HP desktop, and I was on my computer. My foot accidentally hit the power strip off (which everything was plugged in to).
For some reason, every time I try to turn the computer back on, the blue HP screen comes up, then the black screen which asks me if I wanted to open in (safe mode, safe w/ networking, safe w/ command prompt, or open windows normal)
Whenever I click safe mode or open normal, it takes me to the Windows XP loading...

It loads, however when it's done loading, the computer RESTARTS! and does the same things again...
Perhaps it was a disk failure? What can I do to fix this?

We had a power outage recently and even though the backup kicked in, our MS Outlook 07 (running on XP Pro) will only open in Safe Mode with limited features.

How do I get the system to function normally in regular mode with full features again? I'd appreciate any how-to help anyone can provide. THANKS!
 

Answer:Outlook 07 Safe Mode vs Regular Mode

Reinstall. It has been too badly damaged. Your settings have been preserved as has your mail, in most cases... but it is still wise to use Outlook recovery software (see www.majorgeeks.com and others) before you perform the reinstall... your files in process at the time of the failure are likely lost.

Please get into safe mode with networking. Click on greyknights link below and follow the instructions for a malware clean-up. Get a hjt log and post it under hjt log help forum. Lets see what happens. Let us know.

My mother and I share a network, and both own Compaq Presarios from the dark ages . She is running XP and I'm running 98. I caught a virus (pretty sure it's Virtumonde) and I'm taking steps to deal with it. This is not about my problem... unless it's her problem, too.

She recently bought a laptop (which runs Vista) and is networked into the same system. For this laptop, she purchased ESET NOD32 Antivirus4. When she heard about my problem, she thought that it might be a good idea to install this same program to her PC before I reattached to the network to fix my problem. So we did that. Unfortunately, we didn't heed the extremely mild warning that there "may be conflicts" with the McAfee already on her system, and neglected to uninstall it.

As soon as I was finished with the uninstall, I attempted to enter the Add/Remove Programs menu to remove McAfee. It told me to wait while it populated the list, and ten minutes later, I gave up. The computer had frozen, so I did a hard shut down... and have not been able to do anything since!

We can restart it, sure, but it freezes somewhere between the time it launches McAfee and the time it launches Eset - any attempts to do anything either fail or cause the freeze. We of course tried booting in safe mode, but cannot get the options screen (we tried the tapping and holding methods for both F8 and F5).

Incidentally, her computer's symptoms do not resemble mine in the slightest.

So here are my que... Read more

Answer:No safe mode, regular mode crashes

As soon as I was finished with the uninstall, I attempted to enter the Add/Remove Programs menu to remove McAfee.Do you mean "As soon as I was finished with the installation, I attempted to enter the Add/Remove Programs menu to remove McAfee." ?-----------Safe Mode: After you press the ON button, start tapping the F8 key ... and keep tapping .... until you are presented with the "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Try that please.Try F10 if no luck with F8.

hello, my computer's screen froze the other day and now when I turn it on again it tells me that it didn't shut down properly. Gives me the options of continuing on safe or regular mode. What should I do?? how do I get it back to normal?

Answer:safe mode or regular mode??

Boot to Safe Mode, then shut down normally, then boot to normal mode.
While in Safe Mode you can attempt to troubleshoot the issue, and in Safe Mode with Networking you can even update your drivers (such as your video drivers).

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.

Hi

I have this problem and do not know how to solve it. For some time and up to now I can?t enter in Safe Mode. I can login normally in normal mode, but when I restart and boot in Safe Mode (safe mode, safe mode with networking, or safe mode with command prompt, it is the same), few seconds after appearing in the login screen, Windows freezes. I can type the password + Enter fast and then I see the desktop, but it just then freezes, or I can type slowly and it will freeze during typing, or do nothing and wait in login/lock screen and it will freeze after few seconds...

I have made chkdsk c: /f /r at boot, all is ok!, I have done from admin command prompt sfc /scannow and all dism scan check and restore, everything is ok...I am desesperate as I need to make some tasks from safe mode (clean uninstallations, or simply to have it available in case of problem in normal mode!), and I can?t use it at all!

I have win10 pro with last updates.

Please could you point me to some solution or hint? Thanks a lot!

Hi Guys,

I upgraded to Windows 7 back in December and things were going smoothly until two days ago when my computer started freezing.Mouse cursor won't move, control+alt+delete would not work as well.I basically had to turn off the power switch.

Tried system restore the next day, things ran smoothly for the next day until problems returned.Now I can run things fine in safe mode but system freezes after about 10 minutes of use in normal mode.

Also, the processor light stays solid blue all the time now (before it blinked occasionally depending on the nature of the task being performed).

Any ideas?
My specifics:
HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop
Windows 7 Home premium
Intel Core 2 duo

Thanks!

All seems fine in Safe Mode.
 
Buttons freeze when I'm in Normal Mode. I left the computer on yesterday while i was out and it worked in Normal mode when I got home but not completely and I can't duplicate it.
 
So many things are wrong. Restore points were removed. Printer is off the network (Device manager shows yellow warning sign.)
Superfetch isn't running.
Mouse cursor bounces around when typing. I read I need to fix tapping but printer needs to be on network but I can't get it back on the network. Printer spool won't start.
 
Before coming here, I've run startup repair, scf /scannow, Combofix (not that I learned anything or that it fixed anything.) Malwarebytes, Norton scan, Trendmicro scan
 
I've tried msconfig no services but Microsoft, no startup items.
 
Not making any progress.

Hi i have been having problems with my 5 year old computer for maybe 6 months, and I have some serious problems with it. One problem is, when the computer started up, it makes this click noise, like someone pushing a button. Me being a complete amatuer, ignored it until finally it totally effed up my computer. My computer wont go into windows xp, it wont even go to safe mode. I can only go to the system restore screen, and i cant even restore my computer since it says " cannot format user portion !"

I already have all my info stored on a network, so i dont mind like wiping it totally clean, I really just want to delete some stuff on there. (some games and some programs, cuz of serials) please help^^

That clicking noise is probably a sign your hard drive took a dive, along with your symptoms, and you need a new one.

I have to go into safe mode to do anything, and now it's starting to freeze in safe mode after about 15 minutes

What's causing this?

This computer is kinda old and I'm sure this has something to do with the fact that I wasn't able to dust this computer after about 5 years of use with about 6 hours of use a day average.

I've read this may be a hard drive problem but I just want to be sure it's the issue before i go out and replace this one

Hello, there may be several reasons for this problem.
1. Your hard disk may be full and due to low space on HD, your computer freezes.

I have a Toshiba laptop running Win 7 (64bit). Lately the computer freezes up in less than five minutes if running in normal mode, leaving only hard-boot option. When restarting, I go to "Safe with Networking" mode, and everything seems to run fine, even internet. I have repeatedly run scans from: Malwarebytes; SuperAntiSpyware; SpyBot; Windows Defender; CCleaner; Periform FixCleaner; TDSSKiller, and probably another half dozen. I have reset the Hosts file, and recovered to a reset point established back in December, before the current problems began. Nothing has solved the problem (any threats found in the various scans were removed, but that had no effect on the current problem). I suspect, from the scan results, that the problem is not malware. I think there may be a corrupt or damaged file or process somewhere in the system. The OS is factory installed, and the laptop did not come with a Windows disk. What's the best way to clean this up? Thanks for any help.

Answer:Computer freezes unless running in SAFE mode

1) What types of "threats" were removed?

2) Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

I am having numerous start up problems with my Dell PC. During boot up, it shows "Secondary Drive 1 not found press f1 or f2 for set up." When I press f1, I choose to open in safe mode and the computer freezes.

Answer:computer freezes during safe mode boot up

Sounds like a physical hardware problem.. because if a computer cannot startup properly in Safe Mode, then something is seriously wrong. I would invest in a new hard drive and reinstall the operating system that way. Then you can setup the old HD as a slave and grab the data off of it. Sometimes its just easier to cut your losses and move on.. this unfortunately would be one of those times if I was in your shoes.

Any help is VERY appreciated!A little background:Specs: Windows XP ProfessionalPrescott 800 ASRock Mother boardNvidia G-Force 7600 GT Graphics cardMaxtor 80Gig Hard DrivePentium 4 /3.2gSound Blaster 5.1 sound cardP4-450 watt power supply2gig Ram I did test out all the hardware and made sure everything is working properly. Nothing is running hot or above temperatures, ran a "Reimage" report to analyze hardware as well, and other than the fact its low on space (80gig Hard drive with 25 gig's of space)evrything checks out. Computer is clean, heat paste/heat sink is perfect, and everything is seated properly. The reason I think this might be virus related or bios related is this problem has occured now on two machines that are networked and share a internet connection. It started on our first machine as a simple mouse/keyboard freeze. Each time had to hard restart. It got more frequent, till it would do shut downs randomly. Now it is occuring on this machine which is what I am posting about. (both have occured within the same month time frame) It has started also doing freezes. First with the mouse/keyboard, then random shut downs, to the point it is at now and not even running for a couple mins in regular boot up. I am ONLY able to get into safe mode with networking.

Hey, and thanks for taking time to read this, Im new to this site.

On a normal start up computer freezes after 5 seconds or so,, keyboard works (caps and num lock key come on and off) and can move mouse around screen, but can not further interact (i.e. click on a desktop item or bring up start menu from keyboard etc.

Being a computer programmer myself i was curious to try alone to fix this problem but to no avail.

I do see a rundll32.exe ftutil2.dll, SetWriteCacheMode in start up and after googling it can still not determine if this is harmful or not.

did ran some lowly free malware program which offers to remove first 15 threats for free etc but dont think im getting anywhere doing this alone.

would be gratefully appreciated if you could assist.

I did not attach a copy of my HiJack log as not sure if I can/useful in Safe Mode.

hope to hear

Hello all, I have a problem the "other guys" are not able to help me with.  I am trying to run my PC in safe mode, but my PC always freezes up on the the line ending System32/Drivers/Mup.sys. It has stayed on this line for 3 hours. It's definitely frozen and is not coming out of it. What could be causing this and how do I get around it? I am trying to get it unfrozen so I can clean out some spyware --here's the rest of my problem-http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=60143&hl=Thanks

Answer:Computer freezes up in Safe Mode Bootup

Well, personally I am a fan of format and reinstall if hings are that FUBAR'ed. It will take less time, and unlike the workarounds that may help, this will definitely work. No one likes to do this, and there may be some glamor in getting a frozen system to come around, but while reloading everything, it gives you time to think about using one of those "image" products - Acronis or Ghost or whatever. You also get time to reflect on the importance of up to date spyware/adware/virus protection which is used, and regular backups. If you have any left over time, you can think about Linux as a substitue for all of this fun.I wish you luck!

I have a DELL 8300 Stock with the addition of a better graphics card and hard drive.
Its been working fine since the last time it was fixed up by this forum, until recently.

Lately the CPU Usage has typically been 100% almost all of the time. The computer freezes up when more than 2 applications are running at the same time. It also freezes when trying to boot up into Safe Mode. You get as far as the login screen and the keyboard freezes along with the mouse. The OS must still be active however because the screen saver kicks in after about 3 minutes.

I had this original problem of whenever I load Windows XP it would just stop responding during the windows loading screen. Its okay when started up by safe mode. So I backed up all my files and did a full format on the drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP2 and restored my files. It was starting fine for the 3-5 restarts, but then it starts experiencing the same problem over again. I never installed any other programs other than Office 2007, and a Virus Software Kaspersky.

I also did a full hardware test. My Laptop is a Dell Latitude D630 and at the DOS startup it gives the option (F12) of running the Hardware Test. The test ran for nearly a whole day and showed as all test passed.

I would appreciate all the help any one can offer.

Whenever I try to boot into xp, one of two things happens.
I try to boot into normal mode or last known good config, and it goes to the login screen, I click on my account, it shows just the desktop, no icons, just the wallpaper, and then goes back to the login screen.
This repeats everytime I click on my account login.

When I try to boot it into safe mode, it flashes something about realtek boot and asks me to hit shift and some other variety of keys but then it disappears as soon as I have a chance to fully read it, it just loops back to the mode select screen, I don't even get to the login screen.

Hi all,

We were recently having issues with the new versions of Silverlight. My girlfriend tried to download an older version. Apparently the sight she tried to download it from was rogue. I tried to uninstall it (Silverlight) without success. I thought if I went into safe mode, I might be able to get rid of it that way. However, I was not able to boot into safe mode. The computer just went to black screen. I was able to reboot in normal mode by turning off the computer and restarting so I went into msconfig and checked the system boot box in an effort to force reboot in safe mode. Now it wont boot in normal or safe mode. (black screen) If i could uncheck the system boot box, the computer would not be trying to boot into safe mode, so it seems Im stuck there. Any thoughts?

After I installed AVG PC Tune UP and Antivirus is when the compmuter started acting up. I ran the PC Tuneup and it showed me a list of services that I could Disable. After I disabled the services the computer started to freeze mintues after logging in. I went in safe mode deleted both AVG programs and enabled all the services, but the computer still froze. At this point sometimes it was a succesful login, and when it was the computer was very slow almost unresponsive. I went back into safe mode and installed Avast Internet Security and scanned the computer for viruses, and it found 3 viruses and deleted them. So, I tried logging in again, but no luck. In safe mode, I went to the msconfig and disabled startup programs and disabled some services that were not needed. After I did that the computer seemed to run a little faster, but it still froze; and the user account background has been changed to black. So, does this seem like there is still a virus in the computer?

My computer with the Windows XP Professional OS freezes when it gets to the Safe Mode Boot Menu. This is not when I hit F8. It just boots to that menu. When you select any of the options, it freezes and reboots. If you don't select an option, and let the time expire, it does the exact same thing. This happened randomly. My computer worked fine yesterday. All the sudden when I turned it on today this. I know enough about computers that I could back up all my data without booting windows and reformat, but I really would rather fix the issue than have to reformat my computer.

I tried to explain it as well as possible.
Thank you for all your help before and now I will be patient for responses.

Hi all,

I have checked other threads for a solution to this problem, but I cannot seem to find one.

Ive got a Dell inspiron 1420 and it currently will not start up. After initializing, it gives me the screen that states that it detected an unusual shut down (which it did initiAlly, the screen froze so I powered it off manually). But now it won't get past this recovery screen. It freezes so that I cannot move to the option to start in safe mode nor will it do anything when I press f8 during start up. It freezes on this screen as well.

I have no idea if I am infected let alone how to check if I can't even get on my computer. I may have some sort of operating info on another forum that I could find.

Any suggestions?? I'm a student and need this computer!!

Thanks.
 

Answer:Computer freezes at start up; unable to get to safe mode

luckylindalu,
A re-format as suggested will wipe all your docs, photos etc & it therefore very drastic and is only a last resort so don't try it yet please!

I'm not sure of the solution but, in addition to the alternate boots you've already tried is there a "use last good configuration"? Or some kind of "repair" option? If so, try those in that order.

Hello,

This website looked helpful, so I decided to see if I could find some answers here. Thanks in advance to anyone taking the time to read this and/or trying to help!

My problem is that my desktop computer has started freezing a few minutes after booting. The computer works fine, however, in Safe Mode. I have already tried turning off all the startup programs using msconfig, but to no avail. The problem persists even after reformatting.

Here is some information about my computer:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X48 DS4
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz
RAM: 4x2GB Mushkin 996599 DDR2 1066
Graphics Card: ASUS ATI Radeon HD 4870
HDD: Seagate ST3250410AS 250GB 7200RPM

I built the computer in 2008 and it has run solid as a rock up until now. The CPU is overclocked to 3.8 GHz (I have an OCZ heatsink, so don't worry) and the RAM is manually set to the advertised frequency and timings (the BIOS default settings were wrong). I haven't tried poking around with my hardware yet, as I figured it would be better to get some opinions first.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

 I had this same problem once and it turned out to be the display adapter card that was plugged into slot had come loose for some reason,  You might check that.  Also check your Fans to be sure all are running and it's not a heating problem.  If the problem is none of those and you can't boot into safe mode the only other option I know is  insert your retail copy of XP and do a repairinstallation....then redo all of the updates.However, there are some really smart knowledgeable people on this forum so you might wait on the repair until one of them drops by with better solution.It would really help if you listed your computer specs.

This morning we had a power outage and when I turned my computer back on, it would not boot. I tried several times to hard boot, with no luck. Then I tried safe mode. Ran an antivirus scan and it showed malware and several infections which it cleaned. The computer still would not boot normally. I then ran chkdsk, still would not boot normally. I have ran malware bytes, registry repair and the registry defrag program as well as done a disk clean up. It still will not boot in normal mode.
Since my last problems that you helped me with, I have upgraded to a broadband internet connection and have a home network. The 2 other computers on the network are fine.
A week ago, I had purchased Avast internet security and had problems immediately. It would not allow me to connect to the internet. That was uninstalled and I went back to the free Avast antivirus, Zone alarm and Spyware blaster. I was very unhappy with Avast customer service and support iYogi and decided I did not want Avast on my computer at all. I have since downloaded PC tools free antivirus. Once I have my computer operational again, I am open to suggestions.
Fortunately, I did not change anything on the other 2 computers. Just mine.

The BSOD states:

I had a number of infections that spybot and malwaybytes found and fixed, McAfee didn't find anything. I kept looking around for some of my same issues that still persisted, all files hidden, administrator tools empty, cannot run a system restore. I came across your forum that referenced one of my issues and I downloaded combofix, ran it and while it was running the BSOD came up. I tried to reboot in safe mode but still receive BSOD.

At this moment I am runnig ckdsk /r from the recovery console.

I orginally posted in malware forum but I think I need to resolve the boot issue before I can address any malware issues, is that correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

If the chkdsk doesn't help which it might.

7B is often associated with SATA drivers. If you can find your SATA configuration in BIOS, it might be worth a try to set it to ATA or IDE emulation.

If you give the model of computer or motherboard we might be able to figure out where the setting would be in BIOS. Usually it is under Drives or something like that.

I'm not sure that the setting switch on a running OS will help but it couldn't hurt to give it a quick try.

Not much help in regards to which component it is. If you could see the POST, that would be helpful.

Hey guys,

I know this has been outplayed over and over again but I was hoping someone could help me in my particular case. I have just updated to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit this morning, and now I am having issues connecting to the internet. Actually it seems to connect fine (opens Windows Messenger and everything) but says Page Cannot Be Displayed if I try and open something in Internet Explorer. I searched a few forums and found that I should try it in Safe Mode and voila it worked. The other forums stated that that usually means that I have some 3rd party software blocking my connection...but how do I find out which one it is?

Answer:Internet working in safe mode but not in regular

I have been having the same problem I think. Using wireless I can connect in safe mode but not regular. When I try to connect it say's page cannot be displayed. It shows the internet is connected but it will not connect. I am able to connect to my wireless network with my phone and it works fine. Toshiba said since the laptop connects in safe mode that there is a program blocking the connection and that program needs to be found. I did not want to pay them $100 for a 1 time fix. So here I am. the above post sounds similar to what I am experiencing. does it sound like the above fix would work for this issue.
Thanks

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

Hi, A friend of mine has ased me to look at her computer as it reboots and freezes at the black safe mode screen, if she leaves it turned off for about 10mins it will start back up with no problems, it does not sem to be over heating as this can happen withing a minute of booting up.
I have noticed that the dvd from light seems to stay on for quite a while when it boots up but then goes out.

Any ideas thx.
 

Answer:Computer reboots but freezes at the black safe mode screen

you say it freezes at the safe mode screen, is it automatically going to that screen or are you pressing F8 as it boots to get there?? if it is automatically going to that screen, have you tried selecting "last known good configuration"? or can you not even choose which selection to boot with?

Answer:Computer freezes seconds after log-in - Safe mode works fine

Have you used the Registry Cleaner in CCleaner?

If you have, you should check this out.


Quote from Phantom010

You should avoid Registry Cleaners, Boosters, Optimizers, TuneUp Utilities... This type of software will do a lot more harm than good, and should only be used by advanced users who really know their way around the registry. Never to be used blindly on "Auto" mode. Most members coming here with WEIRD symptoms had their computer messed up by malware and/or registry cleaners. These utilities do not only remove what "they think" are orphan entries in the registry but legitimate files still in use will be deleted in the process, crippling some programs and Windows applications beyond repair. In a word, it's a scam.

Keep in mind that they will always find "errors" to fix, even on a fresh Windows install! In itself, this should be enough to convince non-believers...

This is baffling me to no end. I can boot up fine in safe mode, and with networking. But I still manage to get a BSOD not too long into the session. I managed to capture a video of it and in the Technical information of the blue screen it said "STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X81CB6169, 0X807F09BC, 0X807F05AO)", not sure if that's of any use... I've also uploaded the minidump file if you can use that information.

The other issue is the OS doesn't load at all in normal boot. It'll show the windows logo animation screen, then go black, and do nothing until I hit the power button. These problems started arising not long after I installed W7 onto the computer (acer aspire, amd athlon 3800+ CPU, installed a dedicated nvidia 9700 gt card overtop of the dedicated one (the problem was there still before that), 1.5 gig of ram).

If anyone could please help me with this it'd be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I recently came home to my computer off and when I went to turn it back on, it started up with a black screen after the windows logo with just the cursor available. Things like ctrl-alt-delete did nothing so I tried booting up in safe mode which ended up with same black screen and cursor.

I then went to search the internet for possible fixes and have done/verified the following:

Used boot CD and ran Start-up repair, told me to remove any mp3 players or USB devices and try starting again, didn't work (nothing was connected in the first place). The start-up repair log appears to identify no problems with the system.

It's not a hardware issue, the drive itself has been checked on another computer and I've already used a new drive and installed a new copy of windows using the same computer.

Not a virus issue, scanned the drive for viruses and did a chkdsk on it, neither of which turned up anything.

Unfortunately there are no restore points saved so I can't just revert to an older profile.

Since I can access the drive on another computer, is there any program I could run to try and fix the problem? This seems to be the only thing that hasn't been covered in other topics similar to this one which I've found online.

This is my last resort so any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated,
Thanks!

Answer:Black Screen on start-up in regular and safe mode

Did you take the cover off and make sure all cables are connected, make sure that your RAM is seated properly. Just anything that might be loose. From what you say, the HDD seems to be OK. It would seem that making sure everything is connected OK would be the next step. Let us know.

Hello,

After reading some of the more recent posts, it seems I may have a problem similar to the following post "871963-browser-hijacked-keeps-redirecting." I think I was infected about 4 days ago. One night I received an error when logging off my laptop, I think I hit end program so it would shut down, the next day when I turned my laptop on I noticed the problem.

My symptoms include:

-Blue Screen when trying to boot to Safe mode - STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80537009, 0xF7AEA508, 0xF7AEA204)
-Windows Media Center not working... when you double click, it does show an instance running in processes, it just doesn't ever open.
-Initially, I was getting redirects in firefox when using google or bing. Now I am getting tabs that randomly open of their own accord.

I too have CA security installed... have always been less than impressed with it's ability to detect and block anything. That's keep the free version of malwarebytes on my computer for backup. However, the current piece of malware infecting my computer has been illusive. In attempt to detect it, I have run the following:

1) CA (of course)
2) malwarebytes - I have a log
3) avira (online CD and rescue CD w/o update)
4) kaspersky (rescue CD w/o update) - free online scan is currently down - I have a log of rescue cd
5) bitdefender & chkrootkit (online quickscan and rescue CD w/o update)

Answer:BSOD on Safe mode - No load on Regular boot

10 memory dumps - 6 different STOP errors, 5 different drivers blamed

I would suspect that there's a compatibility or a hardware issue here.
The most likely problem is with your wireless USB adapter as the driver is dated from 2006.

Please uninstall the software for your wireless USB adapter and see if that stops the BSOD's. If so, then either download the latest, Win7 driver for the USB adapter or (if there isn't a Win7 driver) purchase a new adapter. I'd suggest a PCI/PCIe adapter that plugs into your motherboard (rather than a USB adapter) as they have less problems than the USB one's.

Summary of the BSOD's:

Hello all,

My wife's laptop (which is running Windows XP service pack 2) recently got hit with super anti virus pro. I ran malware bytes on the computer and on restart the computer would hang on a black screen with the cursor. I restarted in safe mode and was able to get back into normal mode after I used msconfig to disable all the programs that were running on startup. After re-starting I was able to log in, in normal mode. I also used msconfig and changed the startup selection to diagnostic startup.

Now windows explorer wasn't running, so I restarted in safe mode. Windows explorer won't run now in safe mode either. I restarted one last time in safe mode with command prompt. The command prompt works and when I tried to use that to run explorer.exe it came up for a second under windows task manager and immediately closed. I'm pretty much at a loss of what to do now.

Answer:Windows Explorer neither loads in regular or safe mode

First time poster and any help is greatly appreciated.

A few days ago my computer (HP Pavilion a1040n - 630 Pentium 4 w/ 1 Gig RAM and running Windows XP Media Center Edition)started to freeze up a few minutes after booting up into Windows successfully. Everything became "Not Responding", even the Task Manager became "Not Responding" and I had to do a hard shut down. I can boot into Safe Mode w/ Networking and I have run all the virus and spyware scans I have... Avast!(Free Antivirus), AVG (Free 9.0), Malwarebyte's (Anti Malware) and Super Antispyware (all with current updated versions) with no findings of any malware or viruses. The Super Antispyware did find its usually listing of cookies but after deleting them and rebooting, I still had the same problem, no difference. I then used MSconfig to stop 2 applications lauching at startup that I had found on this forum have no real neccesary reason to be launched at startup and had caused other users to have issues with freezing... "HP Image Monitoring" and "Updates for HP". Still no change in the problem after reboot.

Hello all, I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop that uses Windows Vista Home Basic that freezes shortly after I turn it on and log in. I can still move the cursor, but I can't click anything or type anything. It works fine in Safe Mode. I am in Safe Mode with Networking right now. I am suspecting that it is something to do with the drivers since it works fine in Safe Mode. For my first troubleshooting method, I would like to disable all Startup items I possibly can in System Configuration. The problem is that I don't know what I can disable and what I cannot. I don't want to mess anything up.

The origin of the problem: One night I was playing a computer game, not in a web browser, just on the computer, then I went to bed. I didn't turn off the computer, I just shut the top. About 5 minutes later, I heard the Windows start-up music. I thought to myself "What the...?" I opened the top and it said something like, "Windows had to restart due to an error." I click OK and proceeded. After about maybe a minute, it froze and I had to shut it off manually by holding down the power button. Now every time I turn it on and log on, after about a minute, it freezes. I can still move the cursor, but can't click or type anything.

If disabling everything in the StartUp tab of System Configuration doesn't fix the issue, I would like to disable all the items that I possibly can in the Services tab.

Here is a list of all the items that I have in the StartUp tab of System Con... Read more

Until the same day my computer would start, but would not run any programs at all on startup.  This would happen in a matter of seconds, where the 'swirling circle' icon on my cursor would simply start.

Hi I've just recently started experiencing freezing during start-up. It started during a game of League of Legends, and has been progressively getting worse. It's to the point where it'll take minutes to log on and when it does eventually get to my desktop the task bar will have a loading symbol when I scroll on it. I've tried disabling all start-up programs, and services in MSConfig. Updated all drives, uninstalled newly installed programs, restored to a week prior to the freezing and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Hi there, have you tried removing other peripherals like extra HDD's or DVD/CD drive? might be an idea to just start your machine with only 1 drive, your memory and Video card. If it still does that, try starting the machine with less memory, if you have more than one module of ram.
