Windows 7: Cannot Boot Into Safe Mode

Cannot Boot Into Safe Mode

As the title says, I cannot boot into safe mode for windows 7. Booting normally works fine, and I notice no problems with it. When I try to boot into safe mode (or safe mode with networking..etc.), it doesn't work. It goes through lists of loading drivers for a bit, then the light blue windows login page background comes up, and it says configuring computer. Then the computer reboots. Can someone help me get into safe mode? I don't need it for anything vital right now, but I sure don't want to try and fix it in the moment when I do need it. Thanks.

It's very unusual to hear about this. In fact I can't remember it ever being reported before. But it likely means there's some level of corruption in your install which may be discovered by working through the standard Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

These lead up to a possible Repair Install which since it reinstalls the OS should correct the situation unless it is a setting or driver that's allowed back through. In that case you'd need to do the Clean Reinstall.
