Q: Solved: Pc freezes in normal mode, but runs in safe mode

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!

Preferred Solution: Solved: Pc freezes in normal mode, but runs 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.)

I recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

Please help me.

I've had this PC for about 4 years now, and in the last year, it has done this twice. I boot up the PC as normal, and about 3-10 minutes later, everything freezes, except the mouse, which can move around. I have to hard reboot after this. I have done multiple tests on the PC, such as memtest86, disk check, core temp (39 degrees) and intel burn test, and got nothing from any of them. I am able to run in safe mode fine, it is just very slow.

PC specs:
Motherboard - Asus P5QPL - Vm EPU
PSU - OCZ400SXS - EU
Harddrive - Brand new Western Digital Red 1TB 64MB hard disk Drive SATA 6gb/s 7200rpm

Any help would be great

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.

I'm not sure what causes my BSOD. The errors range from BAD_POOL_HEADER to ntfs.sys to drivers-something.

I am currently running Safe Mode with Networking and things seem stable.

I ran Anti-malware (nothing found), VIPRErescuescanner (nothing), fakereanfix (didn't help), ComboFix (probably made things worse).

Are my drivers up to date? No, probably not, but at this point, I'm scared to change anything else.
Is my windows 7 up to date? No updates installed since Jan 2012, I'm too scared to update anything lest I cause more BSODs.

Honestly, I really don't know where to begin. Every time I try to run my computer in normal mode it restarts and gives me options to run in different safe modes or try normal mode again. My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time. I'm currently running sfc /scannow to see if this helps, which I seen it helped on a similar forum on bleepingcomputer. If anyone has anything else to contribute, please feel free.

I have a HP Pavilion A6352c desktop pc. I have recently installed a clean copy on win 7. I have listed the issue I am having below. I hope you can assist me in getting this system to a stable state.

1. System locks up running in Normal Mode - I will take about 3 minutes before the entire system locks up, I have to do a hard shutdown when this happens. I can start the system in Normal mode, but only if I use the diagnostic startup option in MSConfig. I can enable some services, but I am in the process of trying to figure out which one is making it lockup.

2. The system will run fine under safe mode with networking and such. I have the normal startup option in msconfig enabled in safe mode and no issue except it's in Safe Mode!

I have attached the requested documents/files in the attached zip file. I was unable to get the Perfmon report.

I look forward to your response.

Thanks in advance

A:Systems runs in safe mode - Normal mode locks up

The dumps are all over the map, but they all are having issues in amdk8.sys (the OS's CPU driver). What's really interesting is one of these dumps looks almost exactly the same as the issue that is documented in KB 975530, but that's for Intel CPUs running hyper-v. However, you *are* running into a watchdog timeout on the CPU (it's causing other drivers to crash and confuse analyze, but it's not that code's fault that the CPU stopped processing it's requests). This means you might have a bum core on that CPU when entering/exiting C-states. Try running this:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066

Reboot, and see if it still causes problems in regular boot mode. Either way, you probably need to have that CPU looked at as a potential bad part.

Hello guys,
you are my last hope! I do not know what I am supposed to do anymore, I spent the last 8hours looking on the net what I could do. I am a computer noob and have little experience with computers at all.

Here's my problem. My laptop doesn't start anymore. The first thing I noticed on my boot screen were four parallel vertical lines of dots, then four parallel lines of vertical dashes then dots again and so on. This is in the background from the time when I start my samsung R70, even on the boot screen, as well as on the windows vista loading screen (these little boxes floating from right to left...). These really weird dots are however NOT present in the DOs menu and neither is it after you pressed F8 to boot in safe mode. They are also NOT present in safe mode that means they disappear after the boot screen and are not evident on the black background of the safe mode desktop.
However at the time when the windows vista sign is supposed to flash up and you'd be prompted to enter your password (this is when I start it normally), nothing happens and a greyish-white screen comes up, after which the system just restarts and the whole process happens again (including the dots mentioned earlier). I can run the laptop in safe mode, in fact I am running it in safe mode with network drivers right now to type this, but I cannot, under any circumstances, run it in normal mode. When I start it in safe mode I get the following notice:

Do you guys reckon that installing a completely new windows vista will solve the problem?

Hi -

The BSOD bugcheck (STOP error) = 0x50 = invalid memory referenced

As you said - no service packs installed, which is probably one of the problems here. You need to see if you can re-install Windows and then see if it is stable or not.

I do recommend another re-install of Vista using the manufacturer's (OEM) recovery DVD. This must be the first item on the "to do" list. Contact your father or the system manufacturer and obtain the Vista recovery DVDs. Do you have a recovery partition? Many do. Usually, the key to invoke the recovery partition if F10 - during boot-up.

Two other options until your Vista DVDs arrive from your father -
1. Download and burn Server 2008 - it has the same build as Vista, with a few features that have been disabled. It is a trial offer that can be renewed up to 240 days - http:/... Read more

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.

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.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made ... Read more

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 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?

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 was browsing the internet the other day when I clicked on a link and my computer shut down. I immediately knew it was a bad link. My computer rebooted and it wouldn't let me on IE after that at all. I then did a restore to the previous day. I was about to get online so I went and downloaded Kaspersky IS and scanned my computer. My laptop messed up and rebooted itself. Then got Anti-Malware Bytes in Safe mode and ran a scan, still had issues Kaspersky not running right and my computer freezing after just a couple of minutes. Went back and did a restore again to the same spot and this time said forget Kaspersky and jsut did AMWB. It showed my computer is clean, yet about 2 minutes after booting, my computer reboots and the safe mode option pops up. I can run ok in safe mode but cannot get it to work in normal mode. I did trend micros housecall and another online scanner and all say my computer is clean. Yet, when I start IE, I am redirected on every link I click to scour..... or another site with links on it. Any help is greatly appreciated, as well as a recommendation for a better Anti-virus. I jsut had McAfree that came with this laptop. Thanks!

Hi,
 
I could use some help. My Toshiba Satellite laptop is having issues after the normal startup with slowing down dramatically after it goes to the desktop. It will basically freeze with commands taking between 5-50 seconds to be recognized and sometimes it just freezes. When I boot into Safe Mode, I am running everything smoothly. I could really use some help figuring out whats going on.

A:Everything runs very slow in normal, but fine in Safe Mode.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
 
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

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

I disconnected all hardware and tried to restart in safe mode and in normal mode several times and every time I get the BSOD.

I don't know if the PC Scan virus caused the BSOD or not.

Hi dzz and welcome to TSF,

At this point, considering we cannot acces the operating system, you're left with two options.

1. Perform a System Repair. Boot from the installation DVD and choose "Repair my system". Choose to repair any faults found automatically.

2. A complete reinstallation of your operating system.

I have a dual boot linux/xp system.
I was looking at partitions - just listing them - in linux, and now win xp won't come up in normal mode. It will come up in safe mode, however.

Can you help me get my "normal mode" back?

When the horizontal moving bar comes up in normal mode, it just goes on forever. I see the disk light go on for about 8 cycles of the bar. It usually runs 11 cycles before giving me the user selection screen. Now the disk light goes out after cycle 8, and the bar keeps going. I waited 32 cycles before giving up.

I also recently tried to install a Dell XP reinstallation CD I had onto a new partition. I have Partition Commander, which I only run against Windows partitions. The program correctly identified an empty partition and said it had hidden all other partitions. This may or may not have anything to do with my current problem. It did happen in the time frame of the problem appearing. The CD was not able to install XP. It said something about analyzing my system. I left it to do that as I went out for the evening, and when I returned 3 hours later, it was still in that state, so I killed it.
 

A:Solved: win xp can boot safe mode, not normal mode

I had done a full back up using Acronis backup software (a new product for me) 3 weeks ago. When I exhausted what meager options I could think of, I rebooted with the bootable Acronis CD and restored that backup. Acronis won my 4 vendor test (others were Norton Ghost, Argentum, NovaStor NovaBackup) for best backup product. It is capable of taking a backup of any partition (linux or windows). I have now tested the restore to all of C. It first deletes the C: partition, then recreates it and copies the image there to. Worked like a charm. Access to XP has been fully restored. Backup took 1 hour, restore took 37 minutes. I'm now a believer.

Hey all, I have a massive problem with my internet connection, but first..the backstory..

I got a piece of malware through a bad download (i believe) which gave me Antivirus system PRO, I'm sure some of you have heard of it. It hijacked my comp, wouldn't let me open any programs, the internet, etc. Real nasty.

I went through safe mode and took it out manually, I believe I got it all, and now, everything in normal mode seems to be working okay, except the internet.

I have full connectivity while in normal mode, strong signal. However, IE will not open up any web page, RSS feeds arn't coming in, etc. HOWEVER, in safe mode, IE is a beauty..works just fine, any page quickly and easily.

I've tried a few things thus far,

ipconfig comes back as media "disconnected"
tried sfc scannow, didn't help anything.
tried netsh winsock reset, and another netsh command, can't remember which one...nadda.
ipconfig refresh and renew didn't work, probably because everything is disconnected

I'm out of ideas! Anyone, please help if you can! I'm a student going into finals, and things arn't looking too hot not having my comp in good form.

Thank you for reading, and I would appreciate any kind of help. I've visited this site before, I know you guys are good!

Here's the situation: my daughter and I open her computer to clean it and have a look at the video card. We pull the card blow out the dust and reinsert it. We also pull one of two memory cards (to see what's in there) blow out the dust and reset that.

Now hit start button: Windows begins to boot, it finds the drives, then we see the Windows screen - the three bars dance across their track - but we get a black screen that says: Sorry, We apologize Windows failed to start. There may have been hardware or software changes blah blah blah...then it asks if I want to start in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, or Normal Mode.

Safe Mode works just fine. No issues using any hardware or software.

But if I try to start normally, it quickly tries to reboot, shutting down the video output (the monitor goes into no signal - energy saving mode) then the process start a new.

We made no changes! We opened it back up and made sure all the cables and connections were secure. But no luck.

Any ideas?

I've tried running the various performance tools, but the computer sputters, chokes and dies before the performance tools screen can even open. 
 
I've cleared temp files, verified there's enough space on the HD, run adaware by Lavasoft, checked to make sure the ram chips are in good shape and plugged in, I've even visually verified that the CPU didn't melt. 
 
I'm not 100% sure, but it seems like there is a connection between the computer slowing down and when it tries to connect to the WLAN. but that may just be coincidence.

Since this doesn't occur in Safe Mode there is a good chance that this is caused by either a third-party service or startup item.  In order to determine if this is the case, I would suggest performing a Clean Boot. 
 
After you have finished Part C you will reboot your computer.  If the problem doesn't occur you most likely have either a service or startup item causing this.  The process of elimination should find the problem service or startup item.

I apologize if this has been covered in the past so feel free to point me to another post if necessary.

After, what i believe to have been caused by the new service pack upgrade which install overnight, i walked in to find my computer frozen at the Windows XP logo screen.

On restart, it goes through the " windows encountered an error" black screen and I selected the log on as usual option only to have it freeze up on me during the logo screen.

I restart to try safe mode... this time as it boots up processes, it restarts
ive tried every safe mode option to no avail so i cant use the system restore option through safe mode.

I put my XP cd in to try to repair the install, but that freezes as well.

I then went to the recovery console and ran the following commands

chkdsk
fixboot
bootcfg /rebuild

after no luck, i tried to fixmbr but got scared off due to the warning about losing all my information.

Any ideas on what could be causing this issue? im trying to try all options to fix rather than just deleting everything.

if i cant fix, i know long ago i was walked through steps on installing XP on another partition to get into the computer and gather my files before reformatting the whole thing. Can someone tell me how to do that as a last ditch effort as well?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

A:XP will not boot in normal of safe mode / freezes

Hiya Tcanuth.

If you can get back to the command line in the recovery console, type

chkdsk /r

rather than just chkdsk as you then tell it to repair any volume faults it finds which might be all you need to fix things up for you. chkdsk without any parameters just checks the disk but doesn`t do anything else.

My PC will freeze about 1 minute after normal boot but will work flawlessly in Safe Mode, albeit not being able to use most applications like Windows Media Player. It will freeze regardless of logging in and out of any accounts. I even tried making a new account to see if there was a conflict with just my main account, though, to no avail.

^----This poster seemed to have had the same problem as I but I have tried all the methods posted in this post.

I have a:

Pavilion g6 Notebook PC
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, AMD64 Family 18 Model 1 Stepping 0
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 3562 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6520G, 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 457944 MB, Free - 333087 MB; D: Total - 14730 MB, Free - 1639 MB; E: Total - 4055 MB, Free - 1124 MB;
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 169B
Antivirus: Norton Internet Security, Disabled

I would just like to add that my grapics card has been acting up, occasionally giving me a BSOD and causing the computer to perform a physical dump of the memory whenever it happens. Most recently, this scenario happened again but I had happen to be downloading files using uTorrent so I don't know if that may be one of the problems or not. Whether or not it was, I unistalled uTorrent but nothing has changed.

I appreciate any assistance!

After removing a number of infections using malwarebytes, spywarebot and main system PCTools my XP window with icons freezes either immediately or eventually. Tried going to setup on initial boot and putting the system back into default mode ameliorates the problem but eventually in comes back within a half hour or so.

A:Windows XP works in safe mode freezes in normal

If the computer is running without freezing in "Safe Mode" but freezing in normal windows, you could try to perform a "Clean Boot." If no freezing, then methodically start adding programs until the symtpoms reappear.How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353
