Windows 7 Boot To Safe Mode - Now Stuck In Reboot Loop

Oct 13, 2011

I have windows 7 home premium 32 bit dell laptop. Lately, it takes more than 10 minutes before it boots before the windows logo appears). From there the computer works normally. I got a suggestion to check for malwares or viruses so that is what I did. I started by going to msconfig and edited the boot options to start automatically to safe mode with networking, then rebooted my system. After booting, it loaded up the initial screen of safe mode, but then it restarted by itself.

I am now stuck on this reboot loop going into safe mode, it won't even let me go back to normal mode. I went to startup repair, but it didn't find anything, so had to reboot again onto the same situation. I have searched for possible answers, and the best that I could get was to remove the safe boot options and go back to normal mode. The syntax to type was bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safe boot but it didn't work, same with bcdedit /deletevalue safe boot.

I am getting this : "An error occurred while attempting to delete the specified data element. Element not found."

Stuck Halfway Through Loading Windows / Cannot Boot Into Safe Mode

Feb 26, 2012

my Dell Studio 1555 laptop will not boot either into regular windows or safe mode.When booting into safe mode, the very last file that will load is "CLASSPNP.SYS".When that happens it will stay stuck loading the next file for a few minutes, then restart itself into the Windows Error Recovery screen.When I try start-up repair, it goes to a blank black screen and repeats the procedure above (ie. it gets stuck and restarts a few minutes later) When I hard-shut down by pressing the power button, a BSoD appears for a fraction of a second right before it dies.What could the problem be, and what can I do to fix it? I have the windows 7 install disk, if needed. Should I go ahead and try an installation repair using the disk?

Laptop Stuck In A Continuous Boot?

Apr 12, 2012

1. i had a problem with google that redirected me to advertisements whenever I searched.

2. i booted the computer into safe mode and ran malwarebytes and bitdefender to scan my computer and i just let the programs do their thing.

3. upon restarting my computer after the scan my laptop was stuck in a continuous loop.

4. i tried every setting after pressing f8 such as safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. and everytime i can't get past the boot up.

5. finally i try "disable automatic restart on system failure" and then it leads me to the BSOD and it says

STOP: c0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem I saw several posts about this but a few of the answers scared me by saying something to the effect of "this will only work with this user, don't try it with your computer" Just to reiterate i can't even get into safe mode and so have no clue how i'm going to follow your procedures. i also misplaced all discs that my laptop came with edit. I have a Dell Inspiron N5010?

Stuck Can't Boot Windows 7 Laptop?

May 31, 2011

I did a clean install of Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit on my laptop. It booted well and I thought of changing the harddrive letters. After shutdown the laptop could not load windows again. Going through the process to revive it I found out that the harddrive order changed making the back up drive to be drive C:. I am now stuck and cannot find a way around this.

ASUS Laptop Won't Boot Up (in Any Mode)

Jul 8, 2012

My sons laptop won't boot up (only 6 weeks old). When it tries to boot up a screen pops up that says the computer did not shut down properly and do we want to start-up in safe mode. It has three safe mode options and a start-up in normal mode. We have tried start-up in all possible modes at this point and in all cases it will not get past the Windows logo...just stays on a black screen after the windows logo is shown. We have had the store where we bought it run a diagnostic and they say hardware is fine so must be operating system. if there is an override or way we can restart the operating system?

Currently In Safe Mode As Toshiba Laptop Cannot Boot-up Properly

Nov 28, 2012

I am currently in safe mode as my Toshiba laptop cannot boot up properly. I get through the windows startup. All the icons on my desktop look normal, and then about 40 seconds later, a blue screen filled with information briefly appears before the computer shuts down and attempts to restart itself. It happens so fast I can't write down much of what was on the screen other than a data dump, with numbers counting down to 0 and then it does a restart on its own. I did a restore to November 20 and that did not help, so I did another restore for Nov. 9 and that too did not help. I did manage to open in safe mode and managed to find these errors in some event log :

c:usersjayappData empwer-582810-0.xml

Here is the hijack log :

Laptop Running Slow, Will Not Boot In Safe Mode?

Feb 14, 2013

I happened to run across this forum while searching for answers to my computer troubles through Google.Here's the issue, mylaptopis no more then a year old. It's a Dell Model N5040 running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. For the past week or so my computer has been running increasingly slower, and i cannot for the life of me figure out why.I am only using 36gb of a 446gb hard drive, I have 4gb of ram and have run a virus scan, disk cleanup, and a disk defrag.. It does not run slower while doing certain things infact it seems to selectively slow down. I attempted to complete a disk check of my C drive. This has found a few bad sectors which have been either removed during the check or manually however after a week of attempting to run the disk check I have yet to fully complete a single check. It will freeze at some point on every step and never recover.

I use Trend Micro Titanium as my virus protector and I have even attempted to use their house call software to check if maybe my virus softare wascompromised I have used Spybot search and destroy and CCleaner in an attempt to clear up any clutter and/or spy/malware. My only conclusion is that maybe some Windows driver was deleted by mistake through CCleaner. I have attempted to start my computer in safe mode however even this cannot be completed, it freezes and never recovers.Nevertheless, I am at an impass i am unsure on where I go from here and would obviously prefer to fix this myself rather then let some self proclaimed "tech" at a shady I.T. company tell me i need a new computer because they cant figure it out either.

Dell Laptop Won't Boot Normally Or In To Safe Mode Windows 7?

Jan 1, 2012

I'm working on my brother's girlfriend's Dell Inspiron 1764 that will begin to start windows and then immediately goes back to the post screen. I have tried to do a system restore, and recover from a system image... but of course she has made neither of these backups. The laptop will not load windows in safe mode and i have also tried to disable driver signature enforcement. I'm not exactly sure what happened before the failure, but i know my brother installed a Honda data logging program called HONDATA right before it crashed so I am suspecting some sort of driver issues. Is there anything else i can do besides the full Dell system restore that would wipe all of her data?

Stuck In Safe Mode?

Nov 13, 2011

My parent's Desktop was having a side x side error and i've been trying to help her get it repaired. Her problem is that none of the programs will open except for internet explorer. All other applications give the sxstrace.exe error and won't open. I advised her to hit F8 and get into safe mode so I could try and help her further. She couldn't get that to work so I had her force safe mode through msconfig. That worked and got her into safe mode and she's still getting the sxs error and can't get anything to work for her. I advised her to go back into mconfig and uncheck the safe mode boot and wait til I come home and fix it. Now the problem is when she tries opening the msconfig, she gets an error on that saying it can't open the application with the error code 0xc000142 Now she's stuck in safe mode with no networking and the computer is basically useless. I'm 800 miles from home and won't be there until thanksgiving and i'm trying to help her over the phone so im kind of limited here. I was trying to get remote assist going for her but she couldn't install that either without the sxstrace.exe error.

they're running windows 7, If i remember correctly it's the x64 version.

Stuck In Sleep Mode?

Dec 28, 2012

So this might be the wrong place for this thread but I didnt see a computer specific section so i picked this just incase it is related to my windows. Anyway the problem i am having is that every so often, more often then not actually, when my computer hibernates from inactivity, it cannot be woken up. I click the mouse, press everything on the keyboard and nothing will happen. I even try pressing the power button yet that does nothing. The power button just keeps blinking as normal when in sleep mode. I also tried Holding down the power button, in hope to force shutdown the computer but that did not work either. The only way anything happens is if i unplug the computer and then plug it back in. Unfortunately i know thats really bad for the computer but i dont really have a choice.[CODE]In addition, i have restored my computer to factory defaults, aswell as installed all the latest drivers

Stuck In Sleep Mode?

Nov 10, 2011

My pc appears to be stuck in sleep mode. Earlier today I put my pc in sleep mode before going to the gym. When I came back and clicked the mouse the fans and lights came on but nothing appeared on the monitor. I turned the power off and turn it back on and the lights and fans come on again but nothing appears on the monitor. No boot menu, nothing. Also after turing it on, the fans and lights randomly goes off and on, usually with an interval of 30 seconds. During this nothing appears on the monitor.

I have had the same exact problem happen once before - about 4 months ago. When me and my friend tried fixing it we tried some of the following with no result:

- Using a different monitor.
- Using a different graphics card.
- Using different RAM.
- Removing dust.


- Antec 900
- Intel E8500
- Sapphire HD 6870
- 4GB DDR2 Crosshair-something

I have a problem with my keyboard (set to US keyboard); but for some reason it is in an alternate mode where instead of the 'white' keys on the keyboard it prints alternate 'blue' keys. I don't know how it got into this mode - or how to get out. To me (when I go to adjust my keyboard settings) everything seems normal

Speakers Stuck In Headphone Mode

Feb 15, 2012

So I am not getting any audio through my speakers anymore this happened after I unplugged my headphones but it doesn't disable that they are unplugged I open my Realtek HD Audio Manager and it shows that the front jack has headphones in when they indeed aren't. I can plug in my USB headset/mic and get sound through there due to it coming up as its own device so its something to do with my speakers in headphone mode.

Stuck In 'Power Save Mode'

Aug 21, 2012

How do I unstick my computer? It is a Gateway DX4350 Win 7, integrated graphics. Monitor only shows "In Power Save Mode" after pushing a button on the monitor, even after I turn computer off (unplug). There is no POST screen, although I'm sure the computer is turning on and booting, after I installed a PCI video card. Monitor shows nothing from the computer, but does indicate a connection by telling me it's in Power Save mode.

Windows 7 Stuck In Factory Restore Mode?

Mar 29, 2012

Yesterday morning I started my laptop and it was frozen at the Acer screen. After I restarted a few times I called acer tech support. Via remote access the tech support agent was able to see that, even though I have McAfee installed, my computer had trojans and a lot of files had been affected. He told me he could fix it but it would cost $200 which I can't afford right now. So I ordered the windows 7 reinstall disc and hung up. I decided to try doing a system resore back to factory settings. I began the restore and had no problems. Then when the computer went to automaticaly restart it continued to remain stuck on the acer load screen but I found that if I left it alone for about 45 minutes it would automatically restart and continue with the restore process, adding files and whatnot. My newest problem is that the restore is stuck. It started loading Office 2010 and has been doing it for 12 hours now.

Asus CM1630 Stuck In Recovery Mode?

Sep 23, 2012

I've been trolling Google for about an hour now and haven't found anyone with this exact problem (which worries me a bit).My boyfriend got several viruses on his Asus desktop computer. After multiple attempts and anti-virus programs we decided that it was best to just go ahead and restore his computer to factory defaults.We backed up files that he wanted to keep then followed the instructions from the online manual (Asus CM1630 Manual page 66) to do a System Recover since we didn't have the CD.Everything looked like it was going well, no errors during recovery, but after the reboot when the recover was finished, the computer brought us back to the Recovery Window after an error "RDVD folder not exist!", an error I can't find much information on. You can click "OK" then exit out of the Recovery window, but it gives you a "Disk 0 doesn't exist", restarts, and throws you back to the "RDVD" error.

Only thing I can gather from this is that for some reason it's not writing to the partition properly. Again, we don't have the $50 CD to resintall the OS (Essentio Recovery Software).However, I did find this site that clams to have official ISO images for Windows 7: Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) � My Digital Life I'm tempted to just burn the ISO image to a CD and try to reinstall it that way, but he doesn't have any of the paper work or anything so if those installs require an activation code, we're plumb out of luck.

Computer Gets Stuck At Welcome Screen After Sleep Mode

Jan 12, 2012

If I close my laptop, half the time, the computer freezes after I put in my password. It just gets stuck on the welcome screen with the spinning wheel. It doesn't always happen, but I have to do a hard reset everytime it does. I already set the HD to never turn off, so I am just wondering what else i can do to stop this freezing?

Windows 7 Stuck At Welcome Screen, Cannot Access Safe Mode

Sep 11, 2010

When I start my computer everything seems to be working fine but after login it says Please Wait then freezes at Welcome screen and the cursor can be moved around the screen and shows the loading icon and the screen also flashes black every few seconds. I've restarted and attempted to access Safe Mode however it also freezes at Welcome screen. I went into the repair system screen and tried a system restore but it says there are no restore points available and I know I haven't deleted my restore points. I've tried disconnecting any of the hardware I've had installed but that hasn't helped either. There also isn't any faulty hardware. When it was last working it said there was a Windows update so I installed the update but when I tried to turn on the computer the next time thats when the problem started and I don't remember what the update was for. I upgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit about 2 months ago and up until now I've had no problems with it. What can I do?

Here are the system specs:

Dell Inspiron 530s
Intel Celeron 2.00 Ghz
3.00 GB DDR2 RAM (I added 2.00 gigs myself came with 1.00 gig from factory)
Windows 7 32-bit upgrade from Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit
250 Gb Hard Drive

Windows 7 Stuck In Safe Mode Reboot Loop

Sep 23, 2012

My Windows 7 ultimate x64 is rebooting itself at the welcome/logon screen, in safe mode only. Normal mode is fine. The reboot happens instantly, after a few seconds at the welcome screen, the screen goes black and the system is rebooted as though I had hit the "reboot" button on the case, with no clean shutdown taking place. I am at a loss to know what could be starting in safe mode, that _doesn't_ start in normal mode, to cause this.

I have recently done a repair install of windows (the problem was there before that), I have tried replacing the safe mode parts of the registry with clean ones downloaded from an AV vendor website (mcafee if I remember correctly), and have tried doing sfc /scannow which resulted in a corrupted boot.sdi being replaced with the archived copy. None of these have fixed the problem.

Obviously, given that I have a usable normal mode, and good backups, this isn't the biggest problem ever, but it would be nice to get it fixed especially for the next time I need to fix a dodgy driver install or similar. What I can check next, particularly in regards to understanding the startup process and what will be loading at the welcome screen that might be causing the reboot.
