Cant turn off safe mode or turn wifi back on

Q: Cant turn off safe mode or turn wifi back on

So I have already tried the solutions such as boot up the pc and press shift and such to get a menu and then download somthing on a usb and get into an administrator account.The Administration account I can at least log onto as it's not password protected but I still can't turn on Wi-Fi which basically defeats my whole purpose of using the computer as I use it for gaming. So regarding me not being able to log into my actual account, I've tried resetting my password multiple times without success. I think it's due to the fact that I am not able to connect to any Wi-Fi spots (which I assume is because of safe mode which I can't turn off for some reason) And that brings me to my next point, of I can't connect to Wi-Fi die to safe mode. I have tried to turn off safe mode in the settings but when I press the button for it to turn off it slides back over to the on side. Please let me know if you have any other solutions that I have not tried yet, Thanks !

Preferred Solution: Cant turn off safe mode or turn wifi back on

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.)


Seeking a solution to the problem with this:
DVD drive is powered off, Lenovo X230, Windows 8.1 64 bit
and found that in the safe mode (minimal), the problem does not exist.
For trouble I decided to try other options of safe boot to have further information.
After restarting in safe mode "?ctive difrectory repair"', I can not turn back to Normal Startup.
I see only pure blue screen with only one button with restart and shut down, there no any key on the keyboard who work, left click not working too. And I can not access to msconfig and startup manager to change this setting.

But I have a bootable disk and I can edit registry but I do not know what do I have to do to get back Normal startup.
Please, help me! Thank you all in advance!
Excuse me for my english.

With your boot disk you get it to boot normally ?

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 .
I am typing this on my other computer if you're wondering.
Any help please?

I've already consulted Samsung about this issue, and they want me to Refresh (windows 8) my laptop. I have important programs and I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

Started about half an hour ago, I plugged my laptop into the wired connection because it was downloading 6 GB. Plugging in a cord activates Airplane mode. In theory, once out of Airplane Mode, WiFi will turn back on. NORMALLY IT DOES, BUT NOW IT DOESN'T. THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF.



A:WiFi turned off and won't turn back on.

Is this a second computer with the same issue?

I would suggest contacting Microsoft as it seems to be a software issue and not hardware. Especially if you can turn on the wireless manually.

I recently turned off my wifi connection just to do an install. I simply pressed func+F12 and i shut it off until my installation was complete. Now when i hit F12 again to turn it back on the little light on the key turns back on indicating that my wifi connection is back on but when i try to connect in my network connections menu it says wifi is off. I have a Samsung chronos series 7 with windows 8 as my OS. I tried everything as far as trouble shooting goes and I also did a system restore hoping it would reset my network card but I still get know results. Does anybody have any idea what might be going wrong? I really need to get my internet working again. Oh yeah i tried the Ethernet connection and that works but i need my laptop for class and other events where I'm mobile , plus i got an assignment due this morning and this is really putting a monkey wrench in my plans. So somebody please help.

Thank You

Maybe I didn't set my restore point far back enough and also the one suggestion I didn't try was refreshing my computer but i didn't want to have to reinstall every freakin application I have loaded on my laptop.

A:Wifi wont turn back on

Have you checked to set what wireless adapter is set as default since you've turned wifi off? Since you turned it off, the default setting may have changed which could explain your not being able to connect to your wifi.

I'm having an issue with my PS4 for a little bit now. Each time I leave it on to charge and turn off the tv, a few minutes later I turn back on the tv and don't see the screen anymore and the PS4 is on rest mode with the orange light on. I can't turn it back on with the controller and can't turn it off. I have to disconnect the power from the outlet and turn back on the power. Of course afterwards I get the message that it was turned off properly and the system has to check for errors before it's back on. Does anybody what is going on? I never had this issue before.

here's my problem, I Aam running XP Pro Sp3, tried to boot to safe mode using the F8 key, that failed, would not boot to safe more but normal windows was ok.

So I used the msconfig command hoping that selecting to safe mode there in the boot.ini would force it to boot to safe mode.

Well that didn't work and now I can not get into the system to change the boot.ini file.

I have a 3rd party boot disk that I can get into the computer, and no sure where to go from here. I read about the bootcfg command, but cannot figure out how to use it to change the boot.ini to uncheck the safe mode.


A:how to turn off safe mode using bootcfg

Welcome to TSF!

You'll have to manually edit the boot.ini file.
See post 3 in this thread:
XP Safe mode loop (MSCONFIG)

You can use your disk if it lets you edit text files, or a Vista RE disk can be downloaded from one of these links:

I need help fixing this. Right when I turn on my computer, the LAN switch is on for maybe a minute, and if I'm quick, I can use the Internet for that minute. After that minute, however, the little light goes off. I clicked on diagnose why it can not find a connection, and the computer told me the LAN switch is turned off.
If I shut the computer off and restart it in Safe mode and networking, the light remains on and I can go on the Internet.
I have tried to see if perhaps it was some setting I messed with that resulted in that, but can not find any cause for the problem. It just happened out of the blue- one minute Facebook, the next, nothing.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

I'm currently using a windows 7 computer and am having trouble accessing system restore. As I start up the computer normally, I make it past the login screen to the main screen, and it freezes after a few seconds each time. Going on safe mode instead, I went to system restore only to find that is was turned off as well my network connections. If anyone here can let me know how to turn it back on, it'd be much 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.

A:Turn off safe mode from setup menu?

Hello pm012984

Are you using a full XP installation CD?
If so can you access the Recovery Console?

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered (Press R to start the Recovery Console), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually 1).

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
bootcfg /list (there is a space before / )

The screen will show something like ?fastdetect /noexecute=optin ?
Copy this information down as you will need it later

Type command
bootcfg /rebuild (there is a space before / )

Results of bootcfg /rebuild: Total identified Windows installs:
[1] C:\WINDOWS (Select the correct installation to Repair)
Add installation to boot list:

Enter Load Identifier:
Microsoft Windows XP Home (or Professional)

Enter OS Load options:
Type what you copied above
For example
fastdetect /NoExecute=Optin (there is a space before /)

ENTER to quit Recovery Console.

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

So, got my Yoga yesterday. After repartitioning the hard drive (what is Lenovo thinking?) and restoring from my USB recovery disk, I have a nicely working computer. Except for one slightly annoying thing. When I flip the screen over into tablet mode the keyboard becomes disabled (perfect). When I flip the screen back over into the normal laptop position the keyboard remains disabled (ugh!!!). The only solution I have at the moment is to close the laptop and reopen it. The keyboard works again but I have to relog into Windows. Running Windows 8. Only things I did other then changing the drive partitions is remove some unwanted default software that was installed.

I suddenly had a virus that started to run 'AntiVirus Live' and would not allow me to open up any of my applications. After it was done scanning for infections it asked if I wanted to remove them, and upon clicking yes took me to a bogus site to pay for the program. It shut off my AntiVir so I decided to restart my computer in safe mode. If I try to put it in safe mode, the computer bluescreens and shuts off. If I allow it to reboot itself, it gets to my password entry page and bluescreens and shuts off. What on earth do I do now??

A:Computer will not even turn on, shuts off in safe mode-- Viruses unknown

If this is a desktop PC and you have a working desktop handy, pull the infected hard drive and slave it on to the known working desktop. Run scans with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware, clear what they find and then if possible scan the drive with your antivirus software as well. That's what I would do.....

So it started when my computer froze up one day, I tried to restart it and every time I logged back onto my computer it would freeze up again. Windows Security Center was shut off and I could not turn it back on. Also my anti-virus software, Avira, had been turned off and I could not turn it back on. Eventually my computer began to freeze as soon as all my startup programs loaded, so I could not do anything unless I was in safe mode. I have ran malwarebytes in safe mode and removed some infections there. I deleted Avira and have tried to re-install it, but it will not turn on and usually freezes as well. I cannot run a scan through Avira without the computer restarting. I have ran TDSSkiller and it found nothing. Also have ran RKill. Still can not get Avira to turn on protection or run a scan. Avira usually freezes anytime I try to do anything. I have also deleted all temporary files. Anytime I try to log on my computer in Normal mode, it freezes still. I have no restore points.

OK, I was having some Adware and virus issues so I got help with those here, but in the process, it looks like I did something pretty screwy.

If I shut down from the start button it only restarts the computer. If I try to open it up in safe mode via msconfig from run, it just restarts the computer in normal mode. If I try F8, same thing.

I get a "your system has recovered from a seriour error" every time the computer restarts. When I dig for details on the error, this is what it says:


Here is the link to the last thread which will give you an idea of what I've been doing to my computer. Maybe something will stand out that will explain what I did wrong.


P.S. I didn't notice any problems until I downloaded the Filseclab Personal Firewall Professional Edition; could that be what did me in?

You should post this information in your original thread since it's not solved yet.

Hi All,
I am using Windows 8.1 and had to refresh my computer as I was experiencing some problems. Everything seemed to be normal so I started slowly installing the programs I had before. Now a few days after, I find that my wireless device is Off and Flight Mode is On. I have been in settings but the relevant switches are disabled.
Can anybody tell me how to fix this please ? I really don't know how it happened. Can it be that my laptop is still infected ?

Is there a physical switch on your laptop for wireless? Often on the edges of your laptop... easy to miss.

Once again the computer impaired one comes to the table of knowledge...

I shut down my PC, fans stop, lights go out. About 6-8 mins later it starts up again, been doing this for four days now. I ran a virus scan which came out clean. The only way to keep it turned off is to unplug it. The only tinkering I've done lately is to try to open a port on my router (which I didn't get done, forgot password and reset button doesn't work). I don't think my PC is set to hibernate, I have never used that feature.

Is there something I should check?

Have you tried the Lask Known Good Configuration option?

I think it might be a Mozillla issue (damaged), calling for the uninstall/reinstall routine.

Hi, I have a Gateway NV52L15 notebook and I am having problems with my WiFi access. I have Windows 8. My wireless networks are not showing up. When I troubleshoot the network adapter, I get a messAge that reads that my wireless capability is turned off. When I go to the Gateway Device fast lane, my WiFi is on. But when I look in networks it as shows WiFi off and I am unable to turn it on that way. When I go to wireless devices in pc settings, the toggle button for the wire device is grey, therefore I am unable to switch it on- It used to work.

Also, while in the Gateway Device fast lane, when I press the F3 key the airplane mode goes on...the WiFi goes off...by comes right back on. Please help...

I'm baffled.

Had to reinstall Windows XP. It appears there are issues with SP2 involving the video graphics card and the sound. Now I'm stuck. I thought that if I chose "do not use this device" under "Device usage" on the display adaptor tab, that it would pick the right adaptor.

Anyway, my screen went blank and I tried to reboot in safe mode and it sticks at mup.sys. I disabled mup and it now sticks at "nid" something or other.

I got the bright idea to use "Windows Narrator" to try and reenable the adaptor but I think the reinstall or the SP2 killed my sound.

Now I'm really stuck. Is there a way to reenable VGA adaptor from the command prompt in recovery mode?
