    Windows 7 System fails to start in Safe Mode.

    I have turned on the system and during its startup I have pressed F8, nothing happened instead it returned my homescreen. Then I have restarted the machine again and pressed F8 many times, still nothing happened. What should I do now, I need to start my machine in safe mode, how is it possible now?

    Hello my dear Friend ...

    First of all you need to Press the F8 before the windows 7 Splash Screen

    Then Choose a Windows 7 SAFE MODE option

    After that Wait for windows 7 files to load

    Login with an Administrator Account

    There you can make necessary changes in windows 7 Safe mode

    That is it

    Re: Windows 7 System fails to start in Safe Mode.

    Actually you need to press F8 at the very beginning of the start of Windows boot session,
    you may have to press it many times though pressing once is enough but to make things sure multiple press is suggested, but as soon as the power switch is pressed.

    If this does not start windows 7 in safe mode things are not normal and you may have to repair the windows 7.

    Insert Windows 7 installer diskette into optical drive and boot from it.

    Click on Install Now,
    Provide inputs on Language, date and time, keyboard ,
    Select Repair Windows,

    Follow the trail and windows installer will fix problems by removing corrupt files, drivers and repair or freshly install system files and drivers and rewrite registry etc. to make windows fine again.

    remove the disk and boot normally.

    Now try o log in Safe Mode.

    Hi, friend

    Try this alternate method......... to run the PC in SAFE MODE

    press windows key+R and type msconfig and click OK

    then tap on Boot tab

    then select SAFE BOOT option from under the Boot options Category

    and now click Apply, OK buttons.....and Restart the PC

    and again if you are unable to ... access the SAFE MODE .....simply Restore the windows to Previous restore point ( if you already have restore point )

    after that it will be solved

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
