Windows restarts on loading screen (safe mode accesible)

Q: Windows restarts on loading screen (safe mode accesible)

hi everyone

well I am going to talk about this problem from the beginning
my laptop was fine running on vista OS and when I heared about windows 7
I installed it and that went fine too
4 months later the laptop suddenly restarts at any time (browsing - playing games .. etc)
I took it to a technical and he formatted it to windows XP then when I opened the laptop it restarted on loading screen (where the logo is displayed)
I told the technical and he said that I should go to safe mode and restart from there I tried this and it worked
a few weeks later and this method stopped working
now I must go to safe mode and restart and go there again and restart ... etc now it is luck which opens it cause it works sometimes and sometimes not
yesterday i re-installed windows 7 on another drive (not C:/) and to complete installation I must restart the computer
now I must choose an operation system on startup so when i choose windows 7 it restarts on loading and the same on XP but I can acces safe mode in XP

My Laptop is toshiba satellite A300 - 4GB Ram - ATI Radeon Graphic card 1GB - 400 GB hdd

thanks for any help
for any information needed I am here

Preferred Solution: Windows restarts on loading screen (safe mode accesible)

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.)

I took my laptop to another technical and he told me that the problem is between the CPU and the fan.

[SOLVED]

I tried going into safe mode, but when I hit the logon screen, my comp would automatically restart after a few seconds. The seconds are random. Normal mode/startup worked fine. So I thought I could try using msconfig and had windows do safeboot with minimal .... That was a bad idea, since now my computer tries to always go into safe mode, and it always restarts at logon. I've managed to type in my password fast enough but it says it's incorrect, and then restarts a split second after. And I've also tried leaving it blank, but that was incorrect.

I've tried pushing f8 during boot up choosing "repair your computer". I tried automatic fix, but that didn't work. I didn't have any restore points or images, so I couldn't do either of those. I tried the memory diagnostic and nothing was wrong. I tried using the command prompt and tried finding and running msconfig.exe in system32, but it wasn't there.

After pushing f8, I've also tried selecting safe mode with command prompt, but it goes to the same logon screen, and then restarts. I've tried "last good configuration" and "disable automatic restart on system failure" or something like those, without any luck. I've also selected normal mode but since I've selected safeboot, that just goes into the safe mode logon and restarts.

I've tried putting in the windows 7 disc, and managed to get to the menu with the automatic fix, restore point, and command prompt by logging in with the s... Read more

A:computer restarts when loading safe mode logon screen

So after doing some searching, I thought I should try editing the boot.ini. I found out that windows 7 doesn't use boot.ini, but uses the boot loader program. I figured out that I had to use the command "bcdedit" in the command prompt. I found the word "safeboot" for one of the parameters in the list bcdedit provides. Then I took some time and learned how to change that. I learned I had to use the command "/deletevalue" and from there, I got my comp to go back to booting normally.

Ok to start I am running 32 bit Vista OS.

Last night I was playing a video game called Heroes of Newerth, in the middle of a game I began to experience frame freezing like I never had before. Upon completion of the game I closed the program to find that everything was locking up outside of the game as well along with black splotches in my desktop background. Getting impatient i manually shutoff my computer and turned it back on. At this point my woes began. Since discovering it won't boot in any form of safe mode and the last driver to load is the crcdisk.sys I am at a loss for what to do.

I tried to download a vista installation disc and run a repair from there but the white bar loads from the disc than it goes to the windows loading screen (with the green bar) for a few seconds than the screen goes black.

I looked in my bios to see if it was trying to load in an improper boot order or any such thing. I ran a memory test and everything checked out. During my diagnostics it started giving me floppy disk load errors but I do not have a floppy disk, I resolved this by disabling the floppy detection system in the bios (for some reason it turned on). Any help would be appreciated. I would like to think my computer is still useable/salvageable. I am willing to do a complete system restore if I can figure out how.

It is possible that there is an error in my installation disc, I burned it to a spare cd I had lying around and am not positive if I need a dvd or if it can b... Read more

Hi I'm running Windows XP Service Pack 3 on my HP Pavillion ZE4800 (I know, kill me please).

I am not on that computer right now.

When I press the power button and it begins to boot within 10 or 15 seconds or so I get a flash of a blue screen which has text in white which I cannot read as it goes by too fast. After the blue screen flashes, my computer turns off and automatically begins to restart.

At first I had not gotten the F8 boot option screen, and the aforementioned process occurred, but in subsequent times the screen did appear. I attempted the 'Start Windows Normally' option and blue screen flash etc., occurred. I found that even starting in 'Safe Mode' does the exact same thing. The only configuration in which I found that I can actually get Windows running is 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt'. I the only option I have not tried is 'Safe Mode with Networking' as I have my desktop for internet to resolve these issues.

I tried booting from the XP CD and do a system restore but the blue screen again appears, turning off my laptop and starting it again.

I believe I somehow switched from 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt' to regular safe mode by opening the Task Manager > New Task (Run..), and opening up C:\XXXXX (whatever is in the drop down box). Only after this does my desktop appear and I get this error message:

A:Blue screen constantly restarts even in safe mode, help needed

If you format the drive then reinstall you will lose everything. A way to prevent this is to boot from an external media using a bootable operating system like live linux, then copy your files. An alternative option would be to repair your Windows Xp installation. I can help you with doing either if you want me to

I realize this problem happens to MANY people, but this is kind of urgent right now..

My computer specs are in my signature/profile (I think).

This is the best computer I have, so I really want it to work again.

First things first, this is how it happened...

1. I was running Win XP Media Edition SP2 fine.
2. I installed Seven Remix XP to get Windows 7 look on XP.
3. I restarted computer since it said I needed to.
4. It restarted after the logon screen. Basically, it logs on, then turns black for 5 seconds, then restarts.
6. I go into safe mode and uninstall Seven Remix XP.
7. It still restarts automatically

Any ideas, please??
I really don't want to use my backup drive, as that will revert my system back to "factory settings". (But I'll still have my programs, obviously)
I'm saving that as a last resort.

Please reply ASAP, this computer transmits Wi-Fi, and I use it for gaming, also, so I really want to get it back up and running.
Any more info needed, just ask.

EDIT: My specs: 2.4GHz AMD Athlon 64 CPU, 2GB RAM, 512MB ATI Radeon X1600, 225MB HD, Windows XP Media Edition.

My eight year old laptop is still running Vista, and recently started having this issue. After going through all the normal boot up screens and sequences, but after the login screen it opens on a black screen, but my cursor is still active. There's nothing to click on, but ctrl alt del works, and when I start the task manager it works, but shows nothing is on. However, when I boot up in safe mode everything is there.

Hello, I have a bit of a problem here. Last night my roomate was using my computer and kicked my surge protector off. The result was my computer wouldnt boot up. I played with it for a couple of minutes turning it on and off. Finally I opened the case and blew any dust out and tightened a few connectors. Turned it back on again and it seemed to boot up normally. I logged into my account and the desktop started to load up. The icons began coming up and then it froze. Control + Alt +Del would not work. So I manually turned the computer off. I attempted to boot up again and this time when I typed in my password I got stuck on a "Loading Preferences" screen. I attempted turning the computer on and off a few times hoping XP was just having an XP moment. Not the case. Next I tried booting in various safe modes. Right now I'm in Safe Mode with Network and it works perfectly. I tried to restore to a last known setting, didn't help. I did it both via the list after hitting F8 and within safemode. I played around with some account settings and now have it so I don't have to type in a password when logging in.

Hi,

My computer (Windows XP Home) has recently been afflicted with a number of annoying viruses. Most recently, well the only one I know the name of, was the Antivirus XP 2008 virus. I came to this forum for help on uninstalling, and I utilized the malware program. My computer was scanned, and I thought all of the virus was removed. After doing this I used McAfee to scan for viruses. McAfee found a LOT and after the scan was completed, there were 4 viruses that could not be removed or Quarantined. I shut the computer down ( I needed to go to work) but I was able to do things normally at that time, I thought my problems were solved.

However, when I returned this evening - I turned my computer on, the windows logo appeared, and then it took me to a login screen (which I don't usually need to do). I had no idea what my password would be so I just pressed enter and that seemed to bring success. Unfortunately, after the welcome noise sounded, the screen just went blank and never loaded - NOTHING. I pressed ctrl alt dlt NOTHING. I can't right click either. The hourglass came next to the arrow every once in awhile so i would get excited that something would happen... but again NOTHING.

I turned off and pressed F8 to get into safe mode. NOTHING. Basically the only thing i can do on my computer is turn it on and off by pressing the button, and move the mouse around the screen. That's it. Please Help :-)

Thanks so much

So far what I've tried:

Swapping Memory Dimms

Originally thought this was the cause of the Mcafee problem, but after following the directions on this forum to restore the svchost.exe file from recovery console, it did not fix the problem.It started with a BSOD but gave no specific information on the screen about what the problem was. Virus scanning after that with mcafee and mbam did not reveal any problems. Then is started doing a continual restart over and over. Cannot get into safe mode. Was able to get into the recovery console from an xp install disk and ran chkdsk /r. This reported that it found / fixed problems, but the problem still exists.Seems like there are ways to troubleshoot this, but need to be able to get into safe mode at least. Any help would be greatly appreciated.pretty much stuck right now. Thanks!

I have recently used Driver Genius to update some drivers and had a power outage while installing the video card drivers. After the power was restored I could not boot normally (it would go blank after the loading screen goes away before the log on screen comes up.) So I boot into safe mode and install the drivers there, and then restart. It worked after about 12 tries.... Now, it will not load normally at all anymore.
While checking the system error logs, I find that (from 9/26/09 - 9/27/09) I am missing quite a few catalog files in the "system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}" directory. I also have many DCOM errors...

See "SysErrors.txt" in attachments
I have also ran chkdsk with many errors (I assume they are)

See "ChkDskOutput.txt" in attachments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another possible culprit... Leftover video card drivers.... While I thought that my nVidia card somehow fried when the power went out, I put my ATI card in and tried to install the drivers for it, but to no avail... Oddly enough, the only way I could get it to work was by manually installing the drivers. While doing an automated install, I received the error message "Severe: Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit."

What could be wrong???

EDIT: I have a strong feeling it has something to do with my video driver... Read more

A:Computer only booting in safe mode... Blank after loading screen on normal restart.

In order for me to boot normally, I must disable my display adapter (ATI) in Device Manager....

I have tried it with both nVidia and ATI cards and I must disable both in order to boot correctly.. I installed them seperatly so there wouldn't be any conflicts.... How am I supposed to get my video card working If I can't enable it...

I've tried many different things such as disabling auto restart when theres a failure and disabling drives with caution symbols in device manager hidden drivers. I've also tried system repair and restore to previous date. The system repair found no corrupt files and the restore failed to work. Here is what I think you need to know:

Hello mikeyh90,

It seems as if you have some drivers missing, can you please provide the Make/model of your system or, if custom or any changes made, a full specification of the system, thank you. This is so we can find out what drivers you need.

Are you the only user of this system? If not, is your user an administrator?

When was the last time you run a scan using an anti-virus and/or an anti-malware program?

The computer (not the one I'm on) I'm referring to will proceed to start up regularly, but as the desktop appears 2 different prompts show up, one concerning Windows Media Player and another for Windows Defense. Before I can really do anything the computer restarts itself. I try to boot it in safe mode and the farthest it gets is a black screen with "Safe Mode" in each of the four corners.

I can run Spybot by opening up the Task Manager, and that clears up the spyware. The only problem is I can't run any anti-virus software (I want to use AVG) because the software that was previously on the computer isn't there anymore. And when I try to install AVG, it says that it cannot install in Safe Mode. I'm going to run Hijack This the next time I can get on the computer, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can do now?

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop and it refuses to start up in regular mode. It only starts up in Safe Mode.

When I try to start it normally it continually goes to the black screen where it asks if I want to start it in Safe Mode, Last known good configuration, or normally. I've tried Last known Configuration, it doesn't work. I've tried it Normally and it doesn't work either. I've also tried Restoring it to an earlier date, but that still doesn't work.

If anyone can help me, it would greatly be appreciated.

I was surfing the web last night and all of a sudden, the computer restarted. I walked away to get a drink of water, and when I came back, it was still restarting and it continued this over and over again.

I watched it go through the process and when it gets to the screen where it asks you to select Start Normally, Use Safe Mode, etc., the default is Start Normally. So I tried to select Safe Mode, but found that the keyboard doesn't work. This is odd, because the keyboard is fairly new and had been working just fine. Also, during one of the restarts, I entered the BIOS setup and the keyboard works fine there, but once I exit the BIOS setup, it stops working.

Any thoughts? Is it a Windows keyboard driver that is corrupt or something?

Hi, and thanks for reading

Sorry I can't really write much because its from my mobile device. After shutting down and installing a windows update unintentionally, whenever I try to boot back, it freezes at loading. I am unable to use my dvd drive as it won't boot discs (had to manually open it but still receives power). Safe mode does not appear either after pressing F5 and F8, and the only option I receive is to boot startup repair. That freezes in loading aswell. Please help!

Hi,

First thing you should do is back up your data.

One way you can do this is by using Ubuntu. This is completely free, and has the advantage that it can be run off a USB stick or a CD - saving you having to install it on your hard drive.

You can get it from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Then once you boot into it (choose the option where it just runs off the USB/CD) you can use it to copy your files from the Windows Partition to an external hard drive (Note: Do not copy anything to the Ubuntu Filesystem as it will not be saved on shut-down)

Then, try booting from the Windows DVD again to run start-up repair off it (make sure you have the DVD/CD drive set to the top of the boot priority list in the BIOS).

Regards,
Reventon

Hi. Just recently, I was infected by a virus. I started a scan as quickly as possible, but I was too late. My computer (this is my brother's computer) suddenly restarted itself. I thought "okay, I can just restart the scan after Window loads." I was wrong. When I got to the loading screen, it automatically restarts. So, I tried in safe mode, but it restarts as well. Please help me resolve this issue. Thanks a lot!

Hi.

I uninstalled my wireless card and software on my Dell Laptop equipped with Windows XP SP3. I attempted to start it in safe mode to do a virus scan. All I get now is the safe mode, with the cmd.exe window with C:\Documents and Settings\Joe> and a blinking cursor. When I restart, I press F8 and choose "start windows normally" and "last known good configuration" to no avail. No matter what option I pick, it brings me right back to this screen. I need help ASAP, I am at work and I need to have access to my laptop. Forget the scan, all I want now is for Windows to load normally so I can go about my business. If anyone could give me an idea of what went wrong here I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Had a look at a few of the similar topics. Under advice from another thread i went into safe mode thing and turned off automatic restart after failed boot. or whatever that option is and this is the error i get.

translation? my hdd is screwed? or is this a fixable thing.

Basically here is what happened. i was having graphics glitches and trying to fix it, some1 suggested i had artifact problems which meant my GPU was screwed. i removed my GPU and this started happening. b4 this my computer would boot with the GPU in it but the graphics were fcked.

now my computer wont boot in normal or safe mode, with the GPU in or out. GPU in i dont see anything at all but i hear the pc booting. GPU out this happens. is there anyway to make the PC think that my graphics card is new hardware so i can reinstall drivers etc from scratch? possibly reset the cmos? how do i do that?

A:PC restarts after windows loading screen

Hi knoddy


What is the make/model of your PC?

I'll assume you know that when working on a PC, you know how to take anti-static precautions, and to have the power off & the cord unplugged.

Try:
1) Remove the add-on graphics card.
2) As the computer is powering on, immediately start tapping the key/key combo mentioned in your bios banner or bios splash screen "Press F1 (or F2, F10, DEL, etc.) to Enter Setup".
3) In the Bios, make sure the date/time settings haven't moved backwards a year or two. If the time/date have moved backwards, it's time to replace the CMOS battery (see your system manual or your vendor's support webpages for full details on how to do that).
4) Look for an item in the Bios that allows you to "Save Defaults & Exit", and choose that.
5) As the system is restarting, begin tapping the F8 key, and see if you can enter Safe Mode.
6) If you can enter Safe Mode OK, visit Device Manager in the Control Panel (Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager) and remove all the devices listed in "Display Adapters".
7) Visit Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove any video/graphics drivers that might be listed there.
8) On reboot, Windows should redetect the onboard graphics, and install drivers (you might have to allow it to visit Widows Update to get the most recent driver).

If that helps things display OK, next see if you can return your video card for a refund (if it's under warra... Read more

Some background. About an year ago, my hp dc7800 wouldn't start and was giving the 5 beeps with red light. I had not used it for a month, and the tech fixed it. Nie again, after an year, I turned it on. It's been working fine for a month but during that time, the pc would suddenly stop, and even task manager won't work. I robstalled windows after the first time, because the windows splash screen would get stuck. It happened again but then I reset the CMOS, and I think I used f8 and booted with last known good configuration. Now it's happened again but none of that works. The windows splash screen loads and a blue screen comes on for a very short trine before it restarts. I can't read what it says but it's not the standard BSOD,too short. I tried removing the DIMM stocks one by one but no dice. The windows startup repair said that problems had been fixed but they weren't. I've tried running a hard drive diagnostic but my cd Tom is screwed as it won't open, so I can't make a bootable cd, and the bootable USB I made doesn't work either. If you need any logs tell me and I'll post them, but my pc won't boot in safe mode either and just restarts.
