Screen greyed in normal mode, but vibrant in safe mode

Q: Screen greyed in normal mode, but vibrant in safe mode

Hi everyone

I am facing a strange issue.

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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

You weren't in Safe Mode in that right screenshot. Safe Mode doesn't display your wallpaper and it says Safe Mode in the corner's. Try updating your video driver's and see what happens.

Hi, All of a sudden a day before, my computer froze and when restarted it started exhibiting horrendous symptoms-1. windows logo appear,then2. blank screen and no cursor login etc nothing display just sits thereAfter that, I tried to do startup repair but failed.Coming over to Safe Mode it is working fine.I also tried bunch of repairs from there still nothingused the clean boot from msconfig to see if any software causing issue or conflicts and did a system restore, still nothing.checked device manager and there is no exclamation point either that may depict hardware failure.My recent activity-installed "Advanced System care 9" 2 days back but have now removed using safe mode.1 more point it has been a month since my primary HDD is showing SMART error.but if safe mode is working can't we get normal mode backup and running.Please help me out of this conundrum, Any help would be sincerely appreciated.possible options I have in my mind-1.get new HDD and reinstall os2.format existing HDD and install fresh copy but doubt if this issue might returnreadily looking out for other options and would prefer rectifying old one first so that I can avoid a long tedious process of reinstalling everything from scratch.Sincere thanks to any responses.

Please help!  Over the past week or two my computer has been running slower and slower.  Then lost the ability to download anything unless in safe mode.  Now when opening computer in normal mode get nothing but black screen.  Think I got something when my antivirus software lapsed and I wasn't protected for a bit?
 
Running Windows 7 64
 
Tried running Malewarebytes, Avast, SuperAntiSpyware, Microsoft Defender, sf scan, CCleaner and nothing has helped.  Everything comes back fine.

So my laptop only starts up in safe mode and when I try to access it through normal startup, a blue screen appears for a short amount of time and then attempts to startup again going on and on in a never ending cycle.

However, I got it running on safe mode and ran Malwaebytes Anti-Malware on safe mode (with networking). However, it didn't pick up anything wrong. What can I do to fix this???

Hey,

I am having a problem with a laptop, I am getting a blue screen when starting in normal mode, but if I start in safe mode it starts up and logs in fine.

I am not being told what is causing a problem, just to uninstall any new programs/hardware, but nothing has been installed at all.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks for any help :)

I am using Windows XP home edition with SP3. It was working normally. I used to get a popup "Windows cannot find "syssetup.exe"....When i opened yesterday morning I found it taking longer and never go to the desktop after giving the username and password. It stops at Welcome screen with a msg "Loading your personal settings" and no more response. I followed below steps to trouble shoot the issue.

1.I have tried opening in both "safemode" and "safemode with networking", found its working fine. I ran "msconfig" in safemode and unchecked some unwanted applications(nothing related to windows process) and tried again opening in normal mode.... Not worked

2. My internet works normally in safemode. Found some virus by running antivirus in safemode and cleared all the viruses.

It would be really appreciable if any one could solve my issue..

Cheers!

Hey guys, I seem to be having trouble, and I'm not terribly inclined with laptops and computers, mine is an HP G62 laptop, and that's about as far as I know about it. The other day I went to use it, opened it up, I had 3 tabs open (google chrome), and I tried to open a new tab. All new tabs were freezing, and my itunes had frozen as well. I tried closing the laptop, hoping it would go into sleep mode, but it didn't, it stayed running. I reopened it and the screen stayed off, so I did a hard reset (holding the power button to turn it off) and started it back up. I started it in normal mode, and logged on, but after loading from the log on screen, it went to a black screen with just the cursor, and stayed there. I did another hard reset, and started it in safe mode, and now this is how I'm currently running. I've tried disabling the display drivers and restarting, that worked momentarily, but froze shortly after. Next, I tried a system restore, which did absolutely nothing, and then I ran chkdsk and, again, nothing. After all this, I decided to try uninstalling the display drivers, which, once again, did nothing. This seems to be all the info I have gathered from online, and through friends' help, there seems to be nothing left to do that may fix this problem. Anyone have any idea on where to go from here?

Hello ericberard,

 

You?re having a problem with the computer going to a black screen.

 

First test the hardware.


Turn off the computer

As you power it back on, tap the F2 key. This will load hardware diagnostics.

Once the screen loads run the startup test.
 

If this is windows 7 and the startup test pass.


Power back off the computer.

As you power it back on, tap the F8 key. This will load Advanced Boot Options.

Select Last Known Good Configuration.
 

This will take the system back to when everything was working correctly.

 

Clicking the White Kudos star on the left is a way to say Thanks!

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Have a good day.

I have a gateway computer that is about 3 years old. It has a ati radeon 3200 gfx card and came with 4 gigs RAM. Recently I purchased 2x2gb G Skill DDR2 ram upgrade in hopes of more efficient gaming [gfx card is OK for 8gb ram max]. After installing the new ram [about a month ago] the computer was running fine. The new ram created a button on my toolbar called AMD Catalyst, and right-click gave identical options for each ram card, one was a list of what looked like screen settings. I know it were running on 600x800, and last night my troublesome youngest son was using my computer and says he clicked a different option by accident, making the screen freeze momentarily then go black.

I've tried:
restarting my computer
removing the 2 G Skill ram cards
under msconfig in safe mode, disabling AMD Catalyst, for it seems to be the root of the problem.

But every time i restart my computer and try booting in normal mode, I get the typical Welcome ring from the speakers accompanied by a black screen. The screen is a 36" Vizio flatscreen tv with VGA hook up, been using for a computer screen for over a year now.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

There is no malicious software.I have gone through Malwarebytes,TDSSKiller,Kaspersky,etc.Nothing was found.
It doesn't entirely freeze.I can move the cursor which usually is a blue circle.Sometimes more things like highlight icons w/ the cursor or the clock keeps going.
Sometimes when I press ctrl+alt+del and open task manager,the programs that didn't open when I clicked on them will open up.Most times pressing ctrl+alt+del does nothing though.
It works fine in Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking.I have disabled all start ups and every service except Microsoft ones and restarted in Normal mode.Still the same problem.

Hello,
 
OS : WIndows XP SP3
 
My computer (actually on loan from my mother in law!) is taking ages to start and when it does, it is very slow to respond and even freezes. Eventually an Avast alert pops up and tells me it detected a rootkit called "Catchme". I didn't try to delete it, I don't know if I should have or even if Avast was right.
The PC was already slow when I first got it. I ran Malwarebytes before and it found a trojan.agent that was apparently deleted. I also ran JRT that found bad things too (tell me if you need the log).
When I run in Safe mode, the PC seems OK, more responsive.
 
Anyone to help me?
 
Thank you.

Hi,
 
I turned PC on this morning, it was still very slow to start, but the Avast message about the rootkit didn't come up this time! PC was still slow to respond though.
I decided to run AdwCleaner (saved on to USB key from my laptop and copied then on to the PC) just to see and it found 9 "bad" registry keys. I cleaned them and restarted the PC as prompted. PC seems a bit faster to repond now. I also ran Malwarebytes (quick scan) which didn't find anything.
Still think something is not right, can somebody help me check for rootkit or anything else please? Thank you

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.

Hi,

About two months ago my HP Pavilion 6654y Win7, 8GB, etc.,
started running extremely slowly in Normal Mode. It takes several minutes to respond to mouse clicks, etc.
Basically, it just hangs. But it runs "ok" for a minute or two while still rebooting.

In Safe mode it runs just fine.
I've tried everything I can think of to narrow down the problem, to no avail,
including numerous scans such as AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall.
Installed UnHackMe to check for rootkits. Even got Reimage and ran it several times.

I've used CCleaner to clean things up, and also to clear out Startup programs
and disable most scheduled tasks, as follows,

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.

Hello,

I have a Satellite Pro C850 1KU running Windows 7 Enterprise. When it is started in normal mode, it will load until the login page, then just reboot about 20 seconds afterwards. Over and over. The computer runs fine in Safe Mode. I have tried many different things, the recovery tools all say that the Windows installation is fine, the hard drive is in good shape and rather cool (41 C). I have tried all possible power setting combinations, have disabled all CPUs but one, stopped all programs and services in msconfig, ...

Having looke through various forums, I noticed that a frequent problem with Toshiba Satellite laptops seems to be the NEC/TOKIN capacitor on the mainboard. It dies after some time and seems to cause just the problems that I observe. There are many videos (search youtube satellite+toshiba+nec+tokin) and forum entries which describe the problem quite accurately (e.g. thread 8991 on badcaps dot net)

So before I disassemble my laptop, I have a few questions which hopefully someone has an answer to:
- Is there also a NEC/TOKIN capacitor on the mainboard of the Satellite Pro C850 1KU and could this cause the problems I have?
- Would it be in principle possible to just exchange the complete mainboard without having to reinstall Windows? Which mainboards would work, any of the C850 series (e.g. with 2.6 instead of 2.3 GHz)?

Thank you very much and best regards.

Now, it's happened again without me doing a Windows Update and I cannot get into safe mode.

I am really sorry but I cannot even follow the BSOD instructions to run a diagnostic tool because I literally cannot get into anything to run the diagnostics.

Can anyone offer me advice?

Hello, I'm hoping someone would be able to help me resolve this so that I can avoid having to reinstall Windows. Here's the situation: my laptop suddenly cannot boot up anymore; it usually hangs when the "Please wait..." dialog shows up with the text "Windows is starting up...", but sometimes it goes as far as the login prompt, then hangs after I enter my credentials and press Enter. When it hangs I cannot even move my mouse cursor. I can only think of two things I did out of the ordinary that created this mess:
I installed the driver for the Turtle Beach AudioAdvantage Micro USB stick audio card before my PC started hanging. However, after I installed the driver I was forced to reboot, and my computer rebooted just fine.
I closed my laptop's lid to put it in sleep mode while MyDefrag (formerly JkDefrag) was running. I have done this in the past without any issues, but this time when I exited sleep mode my computer was hanging, so I forced a reboot. This trouble started after I rebooted.

I am able to boot up in Safe Mode, but not Safe Mode with Networking, which leads me to think that maybe some network related drivers got corrupted. Some more info on my setup:
I have Windows XP Pro SP3 installed (v5.1.2600)
I have Avira AntiVir and Comodo Firewall installed

Hello, the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.

The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.

So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.

If you can help, thanks!! I have to work on the Win7 computer from LogMeIn, and may have to get around in safe mode there.

A:Win7 runs extremely slow in normal mode, but nicely in safe mode

I suggest you wait for a response from the malware specialists before looking elsewhere.

After upgrading to SP2 about a month ago so I could take finals on my computer at school, i noticed that my computer wouldn't boot up in safe mode (i just get a blank dark screen and i can hear the computer doing something but giving it a reasonable amount of time it doesn't progress from that screen). It didn't concern me because normal mode was working and i was able to take my tests. But now I want to get to the bottom of this. I delayed getting sp2 because i had a feeling it would mess up my computer. (i've had other problems too with visual skins but i was able to resolve those).If it matters, i ran a scan of my system with spyware doctor and it said i had a trojan.dialer and needed to boot in safemode to get rid of it. When I tried, it wouldn't load. Oh, btw, any way to get rid of that trojan.dialer without using safemode?

Hi,

I got win 7 home premium 64 bit on an i3 laptop. My system worked fine until today morning.

The problem is this;
When I boot the system in normal mode, I get to the part where I need to enter my password to login. Once i do that, all I get is a black screen with the mouse pointer that moves about normally. I've waited for the normal desktop environment to appear (ie icons and taskbar) but this doesn't happen (btw, my desktop background color is always black).
The system boots perfectly in safe mode.

Yesterday was the first time in over a year I used utorrent. I used to get the BSOD when I used to use it. I couldn't rectify the problem and hence had stopped using it. It worked fine yesterday though.

Any idea whats happening and how I could fix the problem?

OK ... Not sure what caused this but ....

When I got home, computer was in blue screen. Unplugged and rebooted. Hung at Starting Windows. Unplugged again and rebooted. Selected user and continued on. Hung after desktop image was downloaded and normal desktop was presented. If I moved the cursor to the task bar, got hour glass. Could not get task manager to appear and could not start any program.

Booted in safe mode with networking. Opened firefox in safe mode and it was really funky. Could not get to techguy.org. Showed some porn. Basically, it was highjacked.

My speedtest.net performance is 30 Mbps download, and between 0.3 and 2.0 Mbps upload. If I start in safe mode with netorking, I get download and upload speeds of 25-30, my contracted speeds. Obviously, something loading in the full mode interferes with upload speed. I have tried restarting in safe mode with all of the items checked in the services and programs tabs in msconfig, and still get excellent up and download speeds. How can I figure out what is interfering with my upload speed in normal mode, but not in safe mode?

How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.

Hello,

My laptop is slow to boot and will run for 5-10 minutes in normal mode before it freezes and the mouse cursor disappears. At this point it will be completely frozen and I must hold the power button. In safe mode, it seems to run fine without any issues. I have gotten the BSOD twice with this problem, but never long enough for me to actually read what it said. If it makes a difference, my battery is nearly dead and I have to leave the laptop plugged in almost always.

The following symptoms could be entirely in my head...but I figured I would just give all of the information. I think I hear a slight ticking noise on startup and it seems like the fan is working overtime.

The requested .zip file is attached.

Thank you very much for any help. I'm willing to upload any more information you need if you'll tell me how to do it, I'm not overly computer-savvy.

Thanks,

A:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

Lenovo Laptop

Windows starts normally, but after login displays a black screen with only cursor showing. Mouse is okay, ctrl-alt-del opens a window and task manager works okay.

Safe mode with networking works normally.

Restored from to a restore point prior to an install of "proformax Cleaner", no change to behavior.

Used task manager to take note of services running in safe mode.

Restarted in normal mode and used task manager to stop all services not running in Safe Mode.
Stopping the "Group Policy Client" caused the desktop to reappear. However on restart in Normal mode the "Group Policy Client" had the service's stop etc choices greyed out.

Running MSconfig to eliminate all startup programs and most services, the "Group Policy Client" choice rechecks the box when "Apply" is clicked.

My guess is that a virus changed a registry entry to prevent the desktop from being displayed. Any suggestions as to how to proceed would certainly be appreciated at this point.

Hello WWilliam50 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you run a full scan with your installed anti-virus of choice? Even if you AV comes back "no malware found" it wouldn't hurt to run some additional free on-demand scanners. (No AV product is 100% effective 100% of the time.) Some of the free software recommended by Forum members include: Malwarebytes; SuperAntispyware; and ESET Online Scanner.



   Warning
Make sure you don't install unwanted/unneeded crapware. Some sites are now bundling extra "stuff" with the main product. Uncheck any boxes for things you don't want.
Once you've completed all scans, see if you can rebuild your icon cache.

Icon Cache - Rebuild

If still no joy see if you have any damaged or corrupt system files by running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.)

My computer was running slow with the HD churning away, so I ran the anti-ware (Malwarebytes and Trend Micro) and found no infections.

Then I ran defrag, but had only 5% free space, so I deleted and moved files and got to 15%, but defrag runs for 10 minutes and declares itself done, but it looks like only about 20% of the drive is getting defragged and the rest is badly fragmented.

I ran CCleaner, chkdsk /r & /f, and went to run defrag in safe mode only to find trying to boot in safe mode causes the dreaded BSoD! But WinXP SP3 runs fine in normal mode!

Stop: 0X00000007E (0XC0000005, 0X80537009, 0XF7C5E3E0, 0XF7C5E0DC)

No hardware changes in more than a year, the last time I ran in safe mode was a couple of months ago to get rid of a nasty Trojan.

So, why will defrag not finish? Why does safe mode cause the BSoD?

FWIW:clearing up the HD space had reduced the HD churn.

Additionally:
I ran chkdsk /r in the recovery console and System File Checker, with no apparent change.

I cannot seem to browse the internet for more than 5 minutes (with either Firefox 3 or IE 8) in normal mode, but the computer shows that I am connected to the internet. I was connected via a usb wireless adaptor, but since it has been acting strange, I have removed the wireless adaptor with the software and am now connected through an ethernet cord to the router which is connected to the cable modem.

The internet works fine in safe mode with networking though. Plus, in normal mode, I am able to update services such as McAfee virus scan and Spybot, as well as remote connect to another computer, which require internet although the internet browsers say that it is not connected. I have ran Spybot, Ad-Aware, and McAfee virus scan already as well, all have not found anything.

Lately I have been having problems with my computer.
It turns itself off (it doesn't say "Windows is shutting down..", it just dies.) when I am using it. It turns off after a few hours, sometimes after a few minutes. Then I would have to wait a few minutes until I can turn it on. Because it would not turn on no matter how much you pressed the power button, so the only thing to do was to leave it for a while, and then it world turn on.

But now when you turn on the computer, it turns off seconds after you log in, and then the blue screen of death appears. The next time I tried to turn it on, I got the option to boot in safe mode, and it doesn't turn off. I left it on for a whole day and it didn't turn off.

My computer is a Dell Dimension 5150, running Windows XP Sp2 (I think). I will post more details soon, because the option for running in safe mode does not come up when I turn the computer on. I don't know how to boot up in safe mode because I am a computernoob .

Hi there, I'm trying to fix my Aunt's windows XP computer. I downloaded MBAM as she had previously mentioned getting a call on the phone from someone in India telling her she needed to pay $160 for her antivirus or her computer would shut down.

I ran MBAM and it took about 8 hours to scan, and at the very end found a bunch of results. I told it to get rid of them, and then restarted. Upon restarting, it also ran a disk check, and after that finished, it booted up but took forever to load. Upon loading the taskbar showed up for a brief moment, then disappeared, and I can't seem to get it to run from the task manager either. It brings up the explorer.exe process briefly, then without ever loading the taskbar, it ends the process.

I got a bit worried at this point and tried to restart in safe mode. However, when I do that, it loads a bunch of drivers and then stops. It never finishes loading. (this happens in safe mode with and without networking)

I also tried restarting back into normal mode and running avast through command prompts, but it doesn't do anything and I also got errors stating that a particular file is missing.

What should I do next? I was going to attempt running combofix from my flash drive, but when I try to CD into the drive, it says the drive isn't ready. If you have any suggestions on what to do, let me know, thanks.

Hi!

My 4-year old Gateway laptop (running Windows Vista Home Premium) just froze last night. Tried restarting it, and every time I get to the Windows icon I get a frozen mouse on the login screen or a blank screen. Sometimes, it makes a sound like someone is pressing one key on the keyboard with the Windows icon in the background. When I shut down and restart in safe mode, I am able to use both mouse and keypad. I am able to login in safe mode and safe mode with command prompt, but not safe mode with networking (same result as starting in normal mode).

I have used the install cd, and tried all of the options on the repair menu. Nothing has helped - neither startup repair, nor system restore. No memory errors were detected, either.

Acc. to the system restore menu, the last windows update was early last week (and I have been to use the computer without any issues until late last night). Also, I have McAfee AV, and it ran without detecting any issues 24-hours before the problems began.

Any ideas on what I should try to fix this problem, other than reformating the harddisk? I am not very tech-savvy, so if you want more info, I'd appreciate you walking me through the process. Thanks in advance.

Since you are able to boot into SAFE MODE with COMMAND PROMPT, do that and then at the prompt type "sfc /scannow" (without the quotation marks) and let it run. After it completes that, make a note of any messages and then reboot your system and see if that helps.

Also, what happens when you just use the touchpad and don't plug in a mouse? Any difference or does it still lock up?

Good day!

Mike
