No sign on prompt in safe mode

Q: No sign on prompt in safe mode

I am having a problem with my computer and need to sign into safe mode to remove a program. The problem is that I am not prompted with a sign on in safe mode. How do I remove a program without using safe mode??? or how do enable the sign on for safe mode. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: No sign on prompt in 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.)

A: No sign on prompt in safe mode

Hi newbreed424,

Do you mean that when you boot up your computer and click on the F8 key repeatedly, you do not come to the menu which includes different options for bootup including safe mode? Or do you mean, that when you come to the menu which includes Safe Mode and click on this option, you do not get the logon page and user names?

Normally programs are uninstalled via add-remove programs in Normal Mode. Is there a special reason why you need to remove this program in Safe Mode? Which program is it? What problems are you having? Is it a newly installed program?

Windows just downloaded an update to my ASUS x83V laptop and now I can't get it to boot up. I've tried booting in normal mode, last successful mode, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt and nothing works.

If trying to boot in safe mode it gets stuck on crcdisk.sys. When trying to boot in any mode it eventually hits the blue screen with a STOP error of 0x0000001E. I have also gotten 0x0000007E and 0x00000024.

I am positive it's the latest Windows Update that caused this because my computer at work, which also runs on Vista and is also an ASUS, had an update yesterday. When I came into work this morning and tried to start up it was unable to and did a start up repair. That didn't work but it gave me a system restore option which did work.

Unfortunately my ASUS laptop does not prompt me to do a repair nor a system restore. The recovery disk I have that came with the laptop only allows me to do a restore which erases everything on my HD.

I'm only somewhat computer savvy; better at working with them than fixing them so please try to put things in layman's terms. Thank you!

When I boot the computer and press F8, it shows options to boot in various modes and i can not run my operating system in normal mode and not have win os disc.
I choose "Safe mode with Command prompt".
But instead of displaying me the command prompt on the login screen it shows me the normal login screen....
windows loads files but does not show the dos screen even if i choose simple 'safe mode' option.
What should I do to resolve the issue? I want the command prompt. All your replies are much appreciated.thanks a lot

A:how to get command prompt through safe mode

You need to log in also when selecting Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Simply log in, windows will then show you the Safe Mode Command Prompt.

THANKYOU in anticip'
 

A:Word ... from Safe mode DOS prompt

That's a tricky one mate. Probably best to try the 'edit' command, which opens a simple text editor. You will lose all formatting in the document, so you may see some weird symbols, but you should be able to pick out the text. You can either use just 'edit' then open the file from within the editor. Or, use 'edit <file path/name>.

Hope this helps

I have a utility I run on some customers' machines that requires being run from safe mode. I already have the utility automated via batch, and would like to just run one SFX app and move on to the next machine, knowing that this app will reboot the machine into safe mode w/ command prompt, run my utility, and reboot the machine back into normal mode (the standard shutdown -r -t 01 is easy enough, but there are no modal options!). Also, if this can be done, how would I then make sure that the current user logs in automatically, rather than have safe mode stop at the log-in screen?

The utility in question is a simple "Common Software Package" which includes some software such as Reader and Flash. Some of the software included cannot be installed while an antivirus is running (at least any that have tamper-protection) due to the registry editing involved, but are completely positive in nature (one such software package simply checks the current registry vs. a backup it takes on each shutdown to look for any discrepancies, adjusted for installed software, of course). The packages do not require Windows Installer service to be running, so I have found SM w/ CP to be the best option.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Ok, this is so screwed up you just won't believe it.

I had a problem that I won't go into now but I got to the point where I decided the only recourse was to re-install XP. After the install, it told me I needed to register before I could log in. Ok, fine. So I hit OK and it crashes. I figured out that it would let me log in if I booted into safe mode. At some point I set msconfig to automatically boot into safe mode. Now when it boots into safe mode I get the message requireing me to register, but then I get a message saying I can't register when in safe mode. But until I log in, I can't set msconfig to boot normally. So I'm stuck. Where do I find the ini or whatever file that is booting it into safe mode?
 

A:How to turn off safe mode in a command prompt

well, if you can enter safe mode - go to run -> msconfig -> boot.ini -> and uncheck boot in safe mode.

You only need to activate windows, registring is optional.

Hello,

I have here a pretty stupid problem. I had to enter Windows 8 in safe mode with command prompt to do something. After I did that, I pressed alt+F4 to exit the command prompt, so now I have a complete black screen with a cursor that I can move. I want to exit the safe mode now, to reboot again in normal mode. However, there is nothing to click on, alt+F4 doesn't work, ctrl+alt+del doesn't work, etc. There are some things that do work (for example win+P to connect a second screen, but I don't need that...). When I press the power button, it just goes to sleep. So I just want to get out of this situation. If anyone knows how to bring up command prompt again or shut it down completely, let me know please.

Thanks,

Hi,

I was trying to clear the index.dat files through a boot in "safe mode and using the command prompt"/clear Index.dat files. However, the screen freezes and the system (WIN2KPRO) does not completely initialize.

I have again rebooted my system in "safe mode", opened the command prompt but have been denied access to erase the index.dat files (The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process).

I have two questions, :
1) Why could I not boot in "safe mode and using the command prompt"

2)Why when I am in safe mode, I still have no access to erase .DAT files?

Currently having problem, in that when I turn on my laptop, it loads very slowly, and when it does eventually reach the sign-in screen it freezes within ~5-10 seconds regardless of whether I have time to enter password or not. I have tried disabling some unnecessary startup processes in safe mode, still no luck though. Every now an then it does work, an will continue to work, even if I put it into sleep mode an restart through that. When I try boot up in safe mode it works fine without freezing. I am running Vista also btw. This is all the info I can think of, I am not incredibly computer literate, but if any more info is required I shall gladly post here if I know how to. Thanks.

A:Freezing on User Sign In Screen [works in safe mode]

Since Safemode works fine, the problem is likely a start-up app.

Hi, my computer is infected with some type of malware, but in trying to fix it i might have caused more damage.

Malware/virus had disabled the "Run" option from the start menu, as well as the Task manager. I tried to start it in safe mode (by rebooting/ F8/ Safe mode) but the computer would stop in the middle of the process and shut down. So i restarted the computer in normal mode, searched for msconfig and selected the option to start in safe mode by default. I somehow thought that doing so would guarantee that the safe mode process would be completed. Looking back, i should have thought it out better...

Now, the computer immediately tries to start in safe mode, but again it stops in the middle of the process and shuts down.

Is there any way to disable starting in safe mode from the command prompt? (since I can still access it through Recovery console)....

thanks for your advice

A:[SOLVED] Disable Safe Mode from Command prompt?

Hi fcojmejia !

What happens when you press F8 at startup and choose last known good configuration or normal mode ?

If the above doesn't work you'll need to modify the boot.ini file. Checking the safe mode option in msconfig adds a /safeboot:minimal option at the end of the operating system line in the boot.ini file. You can either boot on an XP CD, enter the recovery console and type bootcfg /rebuild at the c:\windows\ prompt to rebuild a normal boot.ini file, or boot using another bootable CD that supports NTFS to edit the boot.ini file manually.

Once you're back in Windows follow these instructions to post a log and get some help from our security analysts about your malware infection.

Reboot and press F12. Go to the Utilities partition and run the diagnostics for the keyboard, assuming you have the diagnostics on the HDD. Otherwise, they may be on a Dell Resources disk that came with the PC. So you'd have to boot from that CD.
If the letter 'i' fails the diagnostics, it's likely a hardware issue and you'd need to have the keyboard replaced, assuming a replacement keyboard is available...

First some background.

Last weekend my laptop (Lenovo U460) started overheating and crashing. It has run loud and hot since I bought it, and this model has a known issue with the video adapter that makes it crash if it is set to the highest performing mode. I realized yesterday that one of the vents on the bottom of the laptop was clogged with dust, so I used canned air to blow it out, and blew into the other intake and outlet vents, and got rid of lots of dust. It has run much quieter and cooler today, but has still crashed once, I think from overheating. I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem that cropped up today, but there it is.

Now a little more background.

A few months ago my neighbor reinstalled Windows for me. Last Friday as I was leaving work I shut down my computer and it installed a dozen or so updates.

Today something strange happened: Java ran an update, and then Windows 7 Service Pack 1 was installed, followed by about 140 updates. When I check for updates it now says it is up to date. I don't know why the Service Pack wasn't already installed, but after the service pack installed (and before the other updates installed) my computer started booting up in safe mode -- at least that's what it looks like. The resolution is much rougher, and my second monitor won't work. But I'm able to open Microsoft Office programs and use the internet and everything.

I was hoping that after all of the updates it would boot up in normal mode again... Read more

Hi I have been trying to fix my son's HP laptop. Its a Windows & Home Prem. Sorry the lap top I have registered with is mine but it's my son's which is poorly!
When we got back from holiday he went to use it and it wouldn't start up at all. I tried all of the F prompts I knew to get it to do something, F8 & F12 and eventually I got to the screen which says start up in safe mode with all of the options. I tried them all and then got as far as the laptop doing a start up like the first time we bought it, when you have to to register with windows etc. Then it kept freezing on that page where it says initialising.
I have finally got it to start up in safe mode with command prompts as I been following some of the suggestions I saw on line from your site and have just typed in the sfc/scannow in command prompt . It gets to 30% then freezes. I have tried it several times. I dont have a clue what to try next!

This all started when computer would lock up after about 5-10 mins of use. I figured it was a virus since our virus protection lapsed(go figure). So first thing I did was run hijackthis and I will post the log from that. Then downloaded Malwarebytes and did a scan and removed all that with no luck on the computer working any better. So I figured it was time to start safe mode. Well, that just got me in to more trouble. I now boot up to safe mode with the cmd.exe screen. I have tried F8, F6, F12 and esc. They all get me to the same screen of starting in safe mode or windows normally. Anything I choose gets me back to the command prompt in safe mode.

RELEVANCY SCORE 65.2

Cant boot in normal, safe mode or command prompt. System restore fails due to error code 0x80070002 (cannot find file specified) on any selected restore point. Command prompt from the system recovery options menu doesnt allow navigation on other drives, ie cd C:\ doesnt change to the C drive.
Not sure what to do, if I could get to C then could I get all my files across so I can just do a clean install and not lose my emails and pics?
Happened randomly, just woke it up after in standby overnight and had a bluescreen error, something like bad spool.
Please help me

Peace:
While using the Duplicate File delete tool in Comodo System Utilities, the Ntfs.sys drivers were accidentally deleted. Everything worked fine until I shut down. The system would not boot. F8 would not get me to the Safe Mode screen. After about a billion tries hitting F8, the Safe Mode screen appeared. I chose Windows XP Professional OS and the option Command Prompt. When I keyed Enter, I got that same error message about the repair disk which I don't have. Hit F8 again(just held it down) and got Safe Mode screen. Keyed the option Safe Mode and when entered, got that same error message. Hit F8 again and got Safe Mode screen. Keyed option 'directories'. Got same error message and a list of drivers(sys32\ntfs.sys) not on list. I was not able to get into the Safe Mode screen again no matter how many times I hit F8. The keyboard and mouse work while Safe Mode screen is on but don't work when trying to boot the machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:can't perform system restore through command prompt. option in safe mode

Boot to the XP CD and choose the SECOND repair option, allowing XP to install on top of itself. After completion you'll need to go to Windows Update and download & install all updates (except for hardware & driver related updates, which should never be downloaded from Windows Update - only from the OEM websites). Here is a clear tutorial on how to perform a repair install: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/

Yo, guys.

See, I am wondering if memory-resident viruses are merely capable of being discerned and knocked out by protection software in safe mode and by entering the command prompt and erasing them from there?

It's puzzling.

Anyway, thanks!

started happening this week

after it restarts the hp logo screen has a checkered pattern on it, then the safe mode start prompt is just a mess, i cant read it, its just filled with "fda fkjkjakdj fklhiwj;a" just random letters for the actually options. all text is scrambled and the display is also filled with distorted lines.

before restarting, it says that the system recovered from some error, it doesnt always restart tho.

only thing ive noticed is that "dumprep 0-k" and one that says "save" something flashes for a moment on the task manager.

Start in Safe Mode and look in C:\Windows\Minidump for crash log files with a dmp extension, like Mini071008-01.dmp. Zip 4-5 of the latest ones and post here as a ZIP or RAR attachment. The log file contains information useful to determine what caused the error, most likely hardware.

I'm new here and in hopes of getting this resolved. I just installed the new Norton Systemworks 2005 and rebooted after installation. When the boot screen got up to the blue screen with the Windows XP logo before displaying the login names where you put in your password, it just stops. I restarted a few times and waiting a few more times thinking it may need to 'finish' installing. But each time gave the same results. Finally, I went in with 'Safe Mode' and got in with no problems. Tried again in normal mode after looking around for any obvious problems (none found)... back to square one. Tried again in 'Safe Mode with Networking' and it failed like normal mode so I suspected a networking problem??? The last thing I tried which made me mad is that I tried to uninstall Norton Systemworks in 'Safe Mode' and that failed!! Anyone in these forums know the cure? :dead:
 

A:Unable to get to login screen, works in Safe Mode but in Safe Mode w/ Networking

Just a thought

Safe-Mode
Start \ Run \ msconfig \ diagnostic startup
disable any services attached to your most recent install and restart
should get warning next boot about using msconfig, its ok
One key service that needs to be available is the installer service
Try the uninstall, if doesn't complete
Try the uninstall string in the registry only if you know what you are doing

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Under it you will see a list of installed programs. Some don?t show up as words but you can figure out what they are by looking at their values. What you are looking for is the uninstall string. Double click that key as if you were going to modify its value. Do a CTRL + C to copy and then exit the registry editor.

Go to START \ RUN and paste the uninstall sting and hit enter. This should launch the uninstall.

Just a thought though as I am not infront of a test system at the moment. You should research this a little further so you have a clear understanding of what you can and can't do with msconfig.

or simpler yet

Safe-Mode

Start \ Programs \ Access. \ System Tools \ System Restore

Select restore point prior to install of whats giving you the problem.

Again, Good Luck

PS If you try to install it again, turn of antivirus and other open programs etc..

How do I stop this prompt from appearing (apart from signing up)?

A:How do I get rid of the prompt to sign up to Windows Live Mail

Hello Robert,

If you would like to uninstall the program, go into your control panel>uninstall programs and find "windows live essentials". Click uninstall. It will lead you to a screen asking if you want to uninstall specific programs or the whole thing. Choose specific and check off windows live mail on the next screen. That should do the trick.

hello and welcome to BleepingComputer,,
 
     this is reminiscent of BIOS settings that need to be reset to default. you can do this by using that option in BIOS. do you see the option there? 
 
if this pattern exists after BIOS reset, then there are other XP level options to try like console command /sfc scannow and chkdsk /r
 
 not to long ago, i was dealing with a PC that was doing this same thing, and it was the hard drive (SATA) protocol setting in BIOS, it had to be set to IDE.
 
one more thing, this could be blue screen error that isn't halting, just looping boot. is there an option at the boot screen (the one with the safe mode options) about halting on errors?

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.

You can spend a lot of time trying to fix the boot problem and clean the virus from the computer, or you can nuke it and reinstall Windows. I wouldn't bother trying to fix it, personally - I'd back up what I could and then I'd install Windows again.

Hello,

Recently my dad's computer had a corrupted hive and boot.ini. Via this website, I was instructed to run a chkdsk /r while in the recovery console. Everytime I used his OS disk to get into the recovery console, it prompted me for a password and I didn't know it (nor could I leave it blank). I decided to use my OS disk from my computer and I could fix the problem. Now, though, everytime I startup the computer, it prompts me to start windows normally, in safe mode, in safe mode with networking... To give further information...on that same screen there is an option for Windows XP and Windows XP Home Edition. Don't know if that has something to do with it. They both work though when I press enter on either one. Could anyone help me stop the computer from prompting me??? Thank you for any help.

Alright this is a family's laptop that is about 5 or even more years old...has windows xp on it dont know the exact one -.-...alright.

My sister has been using it and says she has never done anything to it...which i dont believe but anyways this computer will not boot up what so ever...everytime you power it on it goes to the screen that says unexpected error software/hardware problem yada yada yada...and then it gives you the options of boot in safe mode, safe mode networking, safe mode command prompt, last known good configuration...and none of those will work...we do have the recovery disks to wipe it but are trying to find a better way if possible...and when you try to load into any of the safe mode choices it stops at multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\Mup.sys...will stay at that for about 5-10 mins and then just turn off...if you try to just do normal mode or last known configuration it just acts like it loads with the windows and the little green loading bar then shuts off...the more i type the more i think the harddrive is toast but im new and learning so i probably could be wrong. Just looking for suggestions =)

Oh and this pc will run very hot...so if its a hardware issue i would not be surprised.
