can't get out of safe mode

For some reason I can't get out of safe mode after doing a clean install for Win 7. I restart computer and it still won't go to regular mode. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Thanks,

Casey

Try re-doing the install. Delete the partition and allow the installer to do a full format of the drive. Have only the drive you're installing to attached during the install.

Hello Casey,

Before reinstalling again, see if you may be able to use one of the options in the tutorial below to start Windows 7 back in normal mode instead of safe mode.

Safe Mode

Hope this helps,
Shawn

After downloading Win 7 and all the drivers, is there a way to get rid of any left over files that are not needed?

Thanks,

Casey

To clean up you can use Extended Disk Cleanup.
