Can't Login After Trying To Reboot In Safe Mode

Aug 7, 2013

I tried to reboot into Safemode via msconfig>startup>minimal boot

Not only did Windows not reboot in safemode, but now, after the Windows splash screen, I get stuck in a black screen with no cursor.

Troubleshooting steps thus far:
Automatic Windows repair via the Windows 8 setup
Windows Restore
Shift+F8 which gets you to Win 8 boot manager (but no option for safemode)

I'm pretty disappointed that something as basic as restarting in Safemode is causing this problem.

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safebooot this cmd boots me back into Windows, but it does not explain why the problem occurred in the first place.

No Login Screen When Boot Even In Safe Mode?

Aug 21, 2014

One day, I rebooted, and then there was nothing. After Windows finished loading, there was naught but a black screen, and a cursor if I move the mouse quickly. This happens in safe mode as well, and on both my dedicated graphics card (an Asus AMD HD 6450 Silent) and my integrated graphics (Other than it is a Biostar A780L3G). When I try to refresh directly, with a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 installation media, it says it is invalid, despite it being x64, same as the installed version. When I try directly, it says the HDD is locked, and none of the guides I have followed to unlock it through the disk work. Also, I dont know if this matters or not, but when I try booting into safe mode, at first, when I move the mouse, in the corners, it says Safe Mode.

No Login / Black Screen With Mouse Cursor Even In Safe Mode

Mar 21, 2014

My Windows8PC shows black screen with only mouse cursor instead of login screen. I tried chkdsk but it shows no errors. Even when i start in safe mode the screen stays black. I think it's a graphic driver problem, but i dont know how i can deactivate or delete the installed driver via cmd.

Screen Greyed In Normal Mode But Vibrant In Safe Mode

Jan 2, 2014

My screen seems to have a grey filter overlaying it. See attached.

When i booted it in safe mode, the screen is showing the right vibrant colors. When i booted it back to normal mode, the screen is greyish but strangely the mouse is showing the correct white color.

I have googled across numerous website but none of them bring me closer to the issue. I have read the thread, Personalize Suddenly Greyed Out but this is not what i encountered. The options or buttons or selections did not grey out, it affects the screen only.

I cannot afford a system restore because i shared this laptop with my gf.

Is There A Safe Mode In Windows 8?

Feb 23, 2013

Does Windows 8 have a Safe Mode and were do I find it. the reason I ask this is because I have tried going into Safe Mode in Windows 8 by hitting the F8 key so I could run my virus scanner to see if there are any virus that it may not be finding under normal mode. But when I reboot my computer and try going into safe mode in Windows 8 nothing happens.

Windows 8.1 - How To Get Into Safe Mode

Nov 19, 2013

HP DV6 6121tx

I was trying to get AMD drivers working properly so that FIFA would stop crashing. I read somewhere that installing the latest AMD Catalyst Beta with separate Intel drivers would work. I tried that, rebooted, and now I have a black screen after the Windows splash logo, with my mouse pointer visible if I move my mouse. So clearly something went wrong with the graphics driver installation.

No problem, I'll just simply boot into safe mode, uninstall the drivers, and experiment with some other drivers.But no. F8 doesn't work, I know. Shift-F8 doesn't either. So I got my installation media, surely there would be a way to boot into safe mode with it!

Here's what I get.

There's supposed to be a 'Startup Options' button here, but for SOME reason, it's not. I have no clue what to do. I cannot fathom HOW Microsoft managed to make booting into SAFE MODE such a puzzle for an end user.

Some more background: After a similar graphics driver adventure last week, I got into safe mode (phew), tried to uninstall AMD drivers. I got an error about how this the installer cannot run in safe mode (what?!). I tweak some registry key to get it working. It failed to uninstall properly. I rebooted, and then I was absolutely unable to get OUT OF safe mode. Nothing I did changed that, each and every time Windows booted to safe mode.

I can't remember the last time I had such a bad experience with a Microsoft product. backing up files in my C: drive and simply installing regular Windows 8 over this. BUT I can't access my C: drive via Ubuntu because Windows has LOCKED that partition because of it's fast-boot nonsense.

Windows 8.1 Won't Boot Even Into Safe Mode?

Jan 6, 2014

I can't boot into Windows 8.1 at all or even safe mode..I have tried startup repair etc etc ....I also tried the bcdedit trick to boot directly into Safe mode with the command prompt option no dice either..I would rather not do a refresh or reset pc..Matter of fact I have tried both options and even with a clean 8.1 disk I can't ....It gives me the error message remove cd or media and restart no matter whether i have the disk on or not. i think it might be a problem with the boot or something or its booting to the wrong device perhaps a USB ? i do have bitlocker on the drives and when i got to do a startup repair it asks for my key and i obv have it on other media which is my usb which won't read the key from it anymore..

How To Start Windows 8.1 In Safe Mode

Nov 13, 2013

I recently tried to update my graphic driver through Windows Update and it caused the screen to go black. I thought I would be able to boot in safe mode and restore the changes, but it does not seem to be as easy as that in Windows 8.

I can access BIOS with F2, but nothing happens when I hold down or tap F8. I have tried to search around for a solution, but they are either not working, require the OS-CD or me to be able to log in somehow...

May 12, 2014

Last night I updated windows 8.1 from windows 8. It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.

Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.

Safe Mode Is Black Screen With Blinking Mouse - Windows 8.1

Sep 15, 2014

I am using Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates.

I'm trying to get into safe mode, but when I do it is only a black screen with in each corner it says "Safe Mode" and the whole screen blinks every few seconds resetting the cursors position. The cursor and text are only visible when I am moving the mouse, otherwise it's all black. I can't do any button combinations like CTRL ALT DEL or anything.

Normal mode works fine, and I can't think of any viruses/malware that work allow you to work in normal... but not safe mode.

I have all my Windows 8 options disabled (Windows 8 mode, fast boot, secure boot) to see if it was those but to no avail.

Every time I try, I have to go into safe mode. It sticks, so I can't just reboot/reset and go back into normal mode. I have to go into the emergency cmd and do bcdedit to delete the safeboot value.

I usually clean my PC every so often, the same with OS re-installation but nothing is wrong with the normal mode and the OS still seems quite fast with the SSD.

I have never seen safe mode function, this is the first attempt at running it in safe mode. What could cause this? I can't get into safe mode but can get into normal mode...

Win 8 Pro - Keeps Rebooting In Safe Mode

Apr 4, 2013

I had to boot into safe mode for virus removal and now all it will do is boot and start safe mode, then reboot again. It just keep doing it over and over. This is a new upgrade to a windows 7 pro OS and I am using 8 pro.

Cannot boot in normal mode. Tried to do that by going into the advanced repair and doing a normal startup, just keeps going back to safe mode and as soon as the screen starts to open it reboots.

F8 To Reboot Into Safe Mode?

Sep 19, 2012

I've discovered that Win 8 dumped the F8 key on reboot to enter safe mode, now it seems that you have to go through a convoluted process within Win 8 to set up boot into safe mode or alternatively through "msconfig".

What if you can't boot into Win 8, wasn't that one of the uses of safe mode?

Win 8 looks quite messed up to me and more complicated to use, maybe a little faster to reboot and more flashy, but apart from that not very convincing.

Can Take A Backup In Safe Mode

Mar 27, 2014

I am using ASUS (S550CB) and given installed win 8 at purchase time so, no cd,key&backup provided to me. And unfortunately i also didn't make the backup. And now a BCDBoot file is missing as a result at boot time a blue screen come.

But now i pressed the F9 at boot time so, a screen open in which option's are available to open windows(I think it is a safe mode) or to troubleshoot(for image recovery back up), I select image and it is saying that there is no recovery image in this computer add a cd/dvd for backup/recovery image.

So, my question is can i open the openwindows(Safe Mode)(pressing F9) and take a back up in my USB and then again to recover image. Is that possible because my BCD/Boot/ file is missing?
