Windows XP freezes on startup in normal mode, but loads OK in safe mode. What do I do?

Q: Windows XP freezes on startup in normal mode, but loads OK in safe mode. What do I do?

Windows XP will freeze after about 10-15 seconds after starting up. I cannot move the cursor or right-click. I have no other choice but to hold down the power button and shut down. However, it loads OK in Safe Mode. Where do I go from here to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Windows XP freezes on startup in normal mode, but loads OK in safe mode. What do I do?

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.)

Arrrgh! Now when I go into Safe Mode none of the icons appear, and I can't see the Start menu! It's a totally black screen except for "Microsoft ® Windows XP Build..." and "Safe Mode" in the four corners. Please help!

Hello everyone,
My computer was working fine yesterday. This morning when I start it, it becomes unresponsive. The mouse works on the desktop, but nothing responds when I click them. I have restarted in safe mode, and everything seems to work. I looked under my system restore and all the restore points are gone. I ran MalwareBytes and SuperAntispyware just yesterday and neither detected anything and I have not installed or downloaded within the last few days.
I have tried running error-checking on C: drive, but it fails to run when I restart. It says "Cannot open volume for direct access. Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package." It then says to use system restore, which I cant because all points are missing. The only thing I have installed in the last week was Adobe Photoshop CS4.
I ran CCleaner yesterday as well and I think something of photoshop was flagged for cleaning, and I let it clean it... However, I restored the changes today using the CCleaner restore file to see if it fixed it, but no change.

I just tried opening Photoshop in Safe Mode and got a message saying that Liscensing for the product has stopped working and requires my computer to be restarted before it can be launched.....Error: 148:3
I suspect this might have something to do with the problem...but no Adobe program is set to run on startup....so I'm not sure why that would be bogging it down. I cannot check Task Manager during normal startup t... Read more

A:Windows 7 slows/freezes on normal startup, works in Safe Mode

In Safe Mode you can call up MSCONFIG via Start/Run or WinKey-R, and see what's starting behind the scenes. Selectively turn off a few things at a time and see what happens. You can also go to installed updates in Control Panel/Programs and Features and sort by date to see what's new from MS.

Hi Guys,

I upgraded to Windows 7 back in December and things were going smoothly until two days ago when my computer started freezing.Mouse cursor won't move, control+alt+delete would not work as well.I basically had to turn off the power switch.

Tried system restore the next day, things ran smoothly for the next day until problems returned.Now I can run things fine in safe mode but system freezes after about 10 minutes of use in normal mode.

Also, the processor light stays solid blue all the time now (before it blinked occasionally depending on the nature of the task being performed).

Any ideas?
My specifics:
HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop
Windows 7 Home premium
Intel Core 2 duo

Thanks!

The problems started when I was watching a .avi file in windows media player 10, and the screen started blinking to black for about 2 seconds then it would go back to the video for about 2 seconds. The sound was freezing and unfreezing at the same time as the video. I could move the mouse around but only when the video and audio were unfreezed. So I tried restarting it and now whenever I boot up in normal mode, after the black screen with the Windows logo that says loading, my monitor turns off and says "no signal" as if it's been unplugged.

I can boot up in safe mode, but it's frozen up a couple times, over about 20 hours of usage, and I've had to restart.

I've tried running adaware, windows defender, housecall, kaspersky online scanner. They came up with 4-5 items but it didn't fix the problem.

I've got an amd athlon xp 1800, nvidia geforce 2 64mb, and 1gb of ram. And the computer is about 4.5 years old, the power supply is about 2 years old.

A:Win xp loads in safe mode but not normal mode

You might like to try this workaround (you will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD).

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Please post back with the result, or if there are any further queries/concerns.

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.

I am running using Dell Inspiron with windows vista. A couple days ago, I got on the computer and then it froze, at fist the program I was using froze, and then I got a circle next to the arrow, but could still move the arrow, then the arrow stops moving. 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. I do not have a Boot Disk and have tried all the tests in the F8 command. Currently I am running an expanded memory test, but figured I would get this out there before I go insane.

Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated.

Hi All,

Been having this problem since yesterday. Whenever I start up windows, it freezes after a couple of minutes. Tried going into safe mode to run virus scan (Avira and Malwarebytes) but both freeze halfway through scanning and I have to do a hard reset. No idea at all what is wrong with it.

Also find that when I try to open Adobe PDF Reader, it shows this message when I am in normal mode. 'The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed.' Right after that, it freezes. Not sure if that's relevant.
Please help me! Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi,

I'm having problems when I load windows in normal mode. When I turn on the computer everything starts as normal. It's after clicking my name and the desktop loads, nothing responds. It just freezes.

I have no problems when loading windows in safe mode with networking.

I ran a full scan through my virus software, Kaspersky. No threats were detected.

I also tried System Restore twice while in safe mode. I'm still having issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

This could be the result of a damaged disk, a failed download or a virus.

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

Okay i got a virus some how dont know how that really isnt relevant surpisingly.

afterwards i used Four diff AV programs just to verify it precense.
All three found it in the exact same place under the same name and all that.
so i rebooted in safe mode, and proceeded to delete it.

I deleted the actual file, which was annoying like usual...
i had to right click on the .dll and go to the properties and remove all the permissions.
Very pety and frustrating... anyways after i deleted them,

I ran the same Four AV programs and they picked up nothing.
then i ran a specific scan with avg, only in the "system volume information folder"
i would have deleted it from there it manually, but it take like an hour,
to go through all the CMD crap, and changing variables, anyways..
it picked it up in there as i hoped it would, i then deleted it from there

afterwards i defragged my whole machine to make sure there wasnt pieces of it anywhere
after the defragging was done, i scanned again w/same 4 AV programs & found nothing
OBVIOUSLY it was gone lol.
i rebooted the system and let it boot up normal this time

I had this machine built just over a year ago, and only had occasional crashes (no particular activities seemed to generate the issue). About 2 months ago the crashes became more persistent, and upon restarting the machine would have trouble loading normal mode. At the screen that reads "welcome" the spinning wheel would simply freeze, and the computer would lock up. As this problem persisted the computer would either automatically reboot itself each time, or crash into a BSOD and run a dump. I can, however, start it in Safe Mode without issue.

It had been running the same install of windows 7 ultimate x64 until a couple of weeks ago when I attempted to reinstall. This solved nothing, so I reinstalled again, this time deleting the partitions and formatting the drive. Again, the problems persist. I'm inclined to think they're hardware related at this point, but I'm in no way an expert.

A little bit of background: OPENVPN was giving me a lot of messages like, "TCP: connect to [AF_INET]109.73.164.47:443 failed, will try again in 5 seconds: The system tried to join a drive to a directory on a joined drive". Contacted my VPN provider regarding this, they questioned where that IP address was coming from because it was not theirs. The IP address is this message would sometimes change, but according to WHOIS all were registred to:

OrgName: RIPE Network Coordination Centre
OrgId: RIPE
Address: P.O. Box 10096
City: Amsterdam


I have no idea personally who this is. Ran the widely accepted malware scanners (Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Rkill, Adwcleaner, Combofix "feel free to scold me...", and I think some rootkit scanners) found Somoto PUP, which I seem to have removed. OPENVPN ceased giving me the "system tried to join a drive" messages.

I want to run Malwarebytes in safe mode to make sure the infections are gone, but every time I F8 and select SAFE MODE or SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING, the computer goes into STARTUP REPAIR mode. I have not selected the RESTORE option, but selecting the REPAIR option just results in the computer hanging and I have to force power off the computer.

switch out memory

disable startup services in msconfig and try to bring up one at a time. (even when this was done and rebooted system still freezes)

I had this original problem of whenever I load Windows XP it would just stop responding during the windows loading screen. Its okay when started up by safe mode. So I backed up all my files and did a full format on the drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP2 and restored my files. It was starting fine for the 3-5 restarts, but then it starts experiencing the same problem over again. I never installed any other programs other than Office 2007, and a Virus Software Kaspersky.

I also did a full hardware test. My Laptop is a Dell Latitude D630 and at the DOS startup it gives the option (F12) of running the Hardware Test. The test ran for nearly a whole day and showed as all test passed.

I would appreciate all the help any one can offer.

I'm trying to resolve an issue(remotely, I'm in California, he's in Kentucky) that my father-in-law is having with his computer after Norton tech support jacked his system, trying to fix his norton install.

I'm not entirely sure what all was done with the system, but I am currently trying to get his wireless card reinstalled, so that we can connect the system to the internet.

After a little digging this system is using a trendnet TEW-441PI wireless adapter. I had him download the drivers to a thumbdrive, copy them to the system and install them. The installation wizard fails because of an issue with windows installer service(We searched for the error, and found another helpful post from this forum), this seems to stem from the fact that the Windows Installer service is not running(According to msconfig services tab).

I had him try to start the service using: "net start MSIServer" on an elevated command prompt, but it fails saying that the service cannot be started in safe mode.

To make sure this process had been going smoothly, I was watching over his shoulder through a hangout session from the other machine, and I can confirm that no safe mode prompt appeared, and the startup appeared as normal as any boot.

After additional searching, I found vaguely similar issues that were resolved either by selecting normal startup under the general tab(his system already had normal start selected), and by unchecking the "safe boot" box in the boot tab(which was a... Read more

A:Windows 7 is in safe mode, even though it's using normal startup.

It is normal for many Services to be stopped as WIn7 sets most to Manual on fast triggers which is the key improvement that makes it lightweight and the best Windows yet. And you do want all msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding All MS Services) disabled except a lightweight AV like MSE or Avast, no more.

What I would do is plug in the ethernet cable which may well load its driver and get connected so you can troubleshoot hands-on the wireless adapter. If it doesn't load the driver then enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) to check again. If problems persist getting connected right click the System Tray Connection Icon to Troubleshoot both adapters which will identify the problem.

Once online run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates with reboots so that WIn7 has the drivers it wants, all performance and security patches are in place.

If Win7 won't run an Aero theme from Control Panel>Personalize type Aero in Start Search box to run the troubleshooter to find out why. The most I'd edit Visual Effects on low resource machines is to disable animations, sliding, fading, dragging intact and selection rectangle from the Visual Effects shown in Optimize Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

Hey guys:
 
My aunt gave me her laptop to look at.  Unforturnately, I can't seem to look at much because it keeps freezing no matter what I attempt to do.  It gets to the Starting Windows screen with the Windows logo and then the hdd light turns off and it's frozen.  Same with Safe Mode.  The startup lines start scrolling by and then it freezes up.  I tried to let Windows Repair try to do its thing and that also freezes on a black screen.  Not sure what I can do besides reload the OS? 
 
It's a Dell Inspiron 15 (1564) laptop running or should I say, "Not running" Windows 7 Home 64-bit.  4gb's of memory.

Hello Everyone
 
 
A problem occured 2 days ago, my computer froze and I had to shut down manually (pressing and holding the power button). After I logged in, a few seconds later (perhaps 20-30 seconds) my computer frozed up again. The mouse cursor doesn't move and I can't get any response from the keyboard. The desktop just remains idle and unresponsive.
 
Whenever I log into Safe Mode (I'm using that right now to make this topic), everything works normal, no freezing or anything.
 
I don't have any type of Windows XP CD, so I won't be able to reinstall my OS but I was wondering if anyone had any advice where I can troubleshoot this problem. I'm using a Dell Dimension 2400 (yeah I  know it's quite old) with Windows XP SP3. Back in June 2014; I had to get another motherboard cause the previous one died and the graphics card stopped working a few weeks afterwards. Is it possible that a hardware driver is broken or corrupted? Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advice.

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. I downloaded DDS,DeFogger and Hijack This, and the logs are below. It is 64bit, so no GMER.

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.

The system boots perfectly in safe mode.

Hello everyone.  I am trying to fix my mom's computer but have so far been unable.  The laptop is running but it is incredibly slow.  When I first got on it a bunch of pop ops took over the screen.  The computer would randomly go to other sites on it's own.  It would go to a search sight called "clarosearch".  Worst of all, it's incredibly slow.  For example, from the desktop, it take about 45 seconds for the IE window to open when I click on the icon.  It takes about that long to navigate to a page and so fourth. I downloaded and ran a registry cleaner, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, and ad-aware.  These found a bunch of problems and cleaned some up, I guess.  The pop ups are gond and so is the strange search site, but the computer is still running just as slow.  It's a paperweight.  Getting another computer isn't really an option right now as my mom is unemployed and we're actually trying to get her resume online but we can't even do that right now with the way the laptop is acting.  I downloaded hijackthis and ran a scan.  Here is the log.    Oh, and as the subject says, the computer runs fast and fine in safe mode.  Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed as I'm not sure what to provide.  Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide.  Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 6:26:57 PM, on 4/26/2014Pl...

Hi there to who ever may be reading.

First of all thanks for taking a look at my issue, the problem as follows :

It shuts down (ie turns off, need to manually press the power button to boot up again) when getting to windows xp desktop.

what i have tried so far:
complete reformat windows xp home

complete reformat windows xp pro

taken the battery out of the motherboard for 30 secs then putting it back in(sometimes this works and it did for a while inabling me to install some softwarelike mobo drivers then after
reboot the problem persisted)

Following that i have tried different batterys and no battery at all each not solving the issue

started in safe mode and installed service pack 3

cleaned processor and heat sink

tried different psu

tried different hard drive (with fresh install)

I originally thought it would be a power issue but i have left it on overnight in safe mode as a test and it never shut down. It only seems to shut down in normal mode! i thought it might be a software issue but i have reinstalled it with different discs and different versions.

I dont think it is a hardware issue as it doesnt turn off when in safe mode, but then i dont think its a software issue because of the multiple clean installs that i have done. So i really dont know.

Please, sombody put me out of my misery. . . . What is wrong with my computer!

A:Help Please : Windows shuts down in normal mode, but works in safe mode.

Please, can somebody assist me. When I try to log into vista normal mode all I get is 'Please Wait' where the 'welcome' logo used to be and it just sits there saying "Please Wait . . . ." forever. When I could login to safe mode I enable the verbose command and restarted and tried normal mode again and it would say "Please wait for the Local Session Manager . . ." and never get past that screen. Now, for some reason, I cannot even log into any safe mode options. After the safe mode drivers load, the computer just hangs at crcdisk.sys after it's loaded and not proceed. So, then I tried to boot to the cd to use the repair utility and my computer won't even acknowledge it, it just takes to me the three safe mode options. In the past I could boot to the cd and use the repair disk and now I can't. Please don't tell me I am screwed. I have so much valuable info that I would really not want to lose. So if anybody can please help me to try and resolve this, I would be greatly appreciative. Thnx

A:Windows Vista cannot boot into normal mode or safe mode

How do you normally boot from your DVD? Is there a key you must press in order to select the boot drive?
Also, what's the exact make and model of your system?

Hello there,
I really need help on this one. When I switched on my laptop ( Hp windows 7) , it started as usual and it screened the message " starting windows" as usual , after starting I was expecting the log on screen to come. But there it was, just a black screen while the standard windows tune was heard, there was NO log on screen. It was just black.
Then I went into safe mode with networking. And that's all how it works now.
Please I would be really greatful if you could help me out.
So basically the laptop is functioning all fine in safe mode but wouldn't go further the " starting windows" message in normal mode.
Please Please help

Hey guyz,

I am really in a great trouble. I wonder if some one could help me out with this issue.
My os details: Windows XP service pack 2.

My machine is unable to start normally. It always shows me the black screen with mouse pointer on it.
When I restart my machine it shows me the options to start my windows in:
Safe mode
Normal mode
last known good configuration

I am only able to start my windows If I select 'last known good configuration'. With the rest two I again go back to black screen.
I really cant continue my work like this any more.

Can any one give me a good solution for this?


Regards
swetha
 

A:Unable to start windows XP either in safe mode nor in normal mode

What is the brand and model of your computer, or motherboard, and what sort of Windows operating system disk you you have... OEM, Dell, Gateway, HP, or other recovery disk?
And how old is your system?
You either have a bad infestation, or a defective hard drive, video graphics, or memory module.
We can perhaps help more when we know what you have available.

Hi,

I hope you can help me as I have a bit of a problem :/

Just out of the blue my laptop won't load up, just after I downloaded AVAST and service pack 1 my laptop has been playing up..

It freezes just at the windows logo and when trying to load safe mode it freezes at the driver atipcie.sys and then goes to a black screen where the cursor is just there and nothing else.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Windows 7 freezes at startup and safe mode

finally got past atipcie.sys but now is just the cursor and a black screen. I think this might have something to do with an update i downloaded as well. Might be the service pack but i'm not 100%

After encountering a couple virus, I was suggested to sue ComboFix and after the program took control of my system, it had to restart and when it did, it wouldn't let me back into Windows.

I'm using a cracked copy of Windows XP and there is information in the computer that I don't want to lose. However, every time I try to start safe mode, it will just load all the drivers and restart the computer and when I boot the computer in normal mode, it asks me for product key which I do not have. I used to patch it when I was able to get into Safe Mode.

I'm stuck in the normal mode, looking at the popup that states.

"Windows Product Activation"
This copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on.
Do you want to activate Windows now?
Yes No"

I do not have a bootable Windows XP to access Recovery Console and I'm not sure if it will help me either, will it? Please help, as there is data I need.

Thanks!

A:Cannot start in safe mode nor normal mode [Windows Xp]

Makes me laugh when people request help for cracked copies of Windows.

Get a genuine copy.

Get a life.
