welcome to the forum.

do you have a windows 7 installation disk or back up disk that came with the laptop. if so restart the computer and hold R. this should initiate the windows recovery program. from there just follow the steps, and it should repair any start up issue that are amis.

I cant think of a reason why it wouldnt boot in safe mode.

Does the computer crash, or do you still have mouse movement? and new software change before hand?

i dont have any disk with this system, i purchased it from a second hand store and this is what i am left with, the mouse moves but i can let it stay there on that screen for hrs and nothing will happen,

i tries the repair option by pushing F8 and selecting repair computer but it just reboots ..can i use any windows 7 disk...i have the recovery disk for my dell.....can i use the os files i may be needing if any from another OS disk?

if its a recovery disk it might not work, but worth a shot.

you can download recovery disks (they used to be free..) that contain all the Microsoft recovery programs. High Speed System Recovery Disc Downloads

someone else my have a better solution, but its a new problem to me

someone else may know, but ive not heard of this before. especially not allowing you to boot into safe mode.

I'm having a similar problem. It loads to the Windows 7 Home Premium screen and then stops. Normally, there is a login box, but it's missing. I've tried loading in all the various safe modes, tried LKGC, Startup Repair and System Restore. Nothing works. Startup Repair said there were no problems and the OS was booting normally. System Restore didn't work. I had 3 recent updates to restore back to. All failed.

I got this on one of them....

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.
Details:
System Restore failed while scanning the file system on the drive D:\
The drive might be corrupt. You might want to retry the System Restore after running chkdsk /R on this disk.
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070057)

I tried to run chkdsk /R but it failed.

I don't understand most of what I"m reading on these forums. I'm not a techie person, my husand built the machine. But he doesn't know what to do to fix this either.

I have a full days worth of drawing files I don't want to lose on my hard drive. Please help! Thank you!

Also, I realized after trying to reboot, that the corner of a folder on my desk was holding down the ESC key. Was that way all during the reboot. That's what happened right before i had this problem. Would that mess something up?

Getting your files back won't be an issue, either pug the hdd directly into another pc, or buy a 3.5" sata caddy and then plug it into a laptop or pc.

This is why when people tell you to back things up you should lol

I've seen on other posts where they suggested plugging the hdd into another pc in order to download data. So, where does the OS live if not on the hdd? How does plugging the hdd into another pc bypass the OS?

I have Carbonite that backs up nightly. Unfortunately, this happened between backups. Guess I need to reconsider letting it run continuously.

no the OS is on the harddrive, but plugging it into another computer as a slave drive uses the other computers OS system.
All it is doing is accessing the files on your drive. if you plug it into another computer and is the only HDD attached it will do exactly the same as what happens with your computer.
