Start in Safe Mode in Windows 7
Safe mode in Windows lets you access your computer and resolve problems. Safe mode comes in handy in cases where the computer can't start normally. Here are three quick steps to follow to start a computer in safe mode in Windows 7.
First, you need to power off and boot up the computer. Before the Windows splash screen appears, press the F8 Key. This should take you to the Advanced Boot Options. If it doesn't take you to the Advanced Boot Options, you have missed it. Reboot your computer and try to press the F8 Key again.
There are three Windows 7 Safe Mode Options in the Advanced Boot Options Menu. We have Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
Let's take a look at what all of these really mean. Safe mode is the default option. It is the best option to use, as it would load only the processes you need to get by. Safe Mode with Networking loads the processes needed to start Windows 7 and those needed to access the Internet as well. The Safe Mode with Command Prompt loads only the processes you need to start Windows 7 and gives immediate access to the command prompt.
The command prompt lets you troubleshoot and resolve certain Windows problems, execute batch files, and in fact, it allows you to tweak some advanced administrative functions as well. Please note, the command prompt is for advanced users only.
To select any of these options, use the arrow key on the keyboard to highlight the options and then press Enter.
Remember to log into the computer using the administrator account whenever you want to carry out any form of troubleshooting. After you are finished troubleshooting, make sure you restart the computer before continuing your normal work.
