    Re: What is meant by safe mode in Windows? How to boot in Safe mode?

    Safe mode is nothing but the same Windows OS which you use but enables to find the problem and fix it, most of the time Windows startup fails because of installing a third party application in your system. So when this happen you can simply go into the safe mode and uninstall the recent application and go ahead with the normal boot from next time.

    Safe mode also gives the option of Restoring your system to previous working condition point, which you can select it during the safe mode boot itself. Whenever you end up in crashing your system and boot is possible then the first solution is to boot in safe mode and do the needed correction but in rare cases even Safe mode will be not possible.

    Now to boot from Safe mode is simple all you have to do is when the system boots just keep on pressing F8 ( Function key ) which is present in the top row of your keyboard and wait for the screen, there will be several options shown in which one option will point out to boot from safe mode, select the option to do the boot from Safe mode.

    Once you boot from Safe mode you have to navigate to either system restore or with the safe mode, you can select the option which you desire. The advantage and disadvantage of safe mode is that it won’t load many drivers which results in fast access but limited. So you can just do the changes i.e uninstall the problematic software and go for a reboot there is nothing else you do with the safe mode even it looks like a normal OS UI.

    What is meant by safe mode in Windows?
    Safe mode is a special way for windows to load whenever there is compatibility related problem which interfere with normal operation of windows.
    This normally occurs whenever you install a new software or hardware which is not compatible.
    Safe mode allows you to troubleshoot windows and find out what is creating problem. After you have rectified, you can boot windows normally.
    While booting in safe mode , system bypasses start up programs and drivers.

    After you have booted in safe mode, if the problem is due to some software, you can uninstall it from Control panel-> Add/Remove programs.
    Or if the problem is due to inserting new hardware, remove it now.
    But if problem still lies, then you have install new windows.

    Hi Friend...

    Well, you can do Boot in safe mode by getting into the Windows 2000 and XP Safe mode,
    As the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below.
    Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

    Now your PC is start running or booting in Safe Mode.
    Hope this help You..

    Thanks

    Re: What is meant by safe mode in Windows? How to boot in Safe mode?

    What is Safe Mode?

    Safe mode is the administration mode, for repairing or diagnosing problems with a PC running the Windows OS. If a virus or piece of software you have installed, causes windows to crash and prevents you from using your PC, booting into safe mode can enable you to fix your PC, without calling out an expensive computer repair man.

    When PC starts in Safe Mode, it loads only the minimum configuration required to log into windows. Extreme problems may occur with the DLL and drivers required by Windows. If this is the case, you may need to use the windows Recovery Console, which can be found on your installation CD. In most situtions, you will be able to boot into Safe Mode.

    Safe Mode Settings:

    1. Safe Mode: This is the basic minimal settings. When logged into this mode, you will only have access to the basic drivers, such as Mouse, keyboard, and basic Graphics. The full functionality of your graphics card is not loaded, neither is networking and various other non default services and devices. This mode is useful when you cannot boot into the other safe Modes.

    2. Safe Mode with command Prompt: This loads much of the same drivers and services a ssafe mode, but instead of loading the normal Windows Graphical User Interface(GUI). This is effectively the your desktop start many and shortcuts etc. It logs you into the command Prompt. This is very much similar to old DOS system and requires advanced knowledge of computers. If you are reading a hub asking what Safe Mode is, you will probably not want to boot into this mode.

    3. Safe mode with Networking: This loads the windows GUI and options as per normal Safe Mode. But loads the networking drivers, these drivers are used by the PC to speak to other computers on your network, or in extreme emergencies, to access the Internet. It is generally not advisable to use Safe Mode to surf the Internet.

    Useful Applications in Safe Mode:

    There are several tools that can be useful when logged into Safe Mode. Some of the more useful tools include:

    1. Computer Manager
    2. Event Viewer
    3. The Command Prompt
    4. System Restore

    General Way to start your PC in safe mode is: As you start your computer and it starts booting, hold down the key "F8". It will bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu". Now, use arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and Press Enter key.

    PC will start in safe mode.

    Thanks..................

    SAFE MODE-

    Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you're using.


    Boot in Safe mode-

    *Press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts.
    *You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears.
    *If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    *On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press Enter.


    Exit safe mode

    Restart your computer and let Windows start normally.

    Re: What is meant by safe mode in Windows? How to boot in Safe mode?

    Hi,

    Safe Mode is the protected mode employed by Windows at times of trouble.

    If there is a situation the Windows can`t boot normally due to missing or corrupt boot files, drivers, the computer fails to load in normal mode which demands all asistant programs to be active at that time. It goes into "Hang".

    The Safe Mode was designed to recover from the situation, as minimal driver files and other assistant files get loaded to run the Windows knowing not all files are available and working.

    To activate Safe Mode, one needs to press F8 once the POST testing is over and at the beginning of the booting process.

    Thanks.
