auto safe mode booting, can't boot normal
HI,

I have this company laptop here (a Toshiba satellite harman/kardon) that i must repare without losing anything.

this is the message i get before windows start:
2 System Processors [2047Mb memory] Multiprocessor Kernel The System is booting in safe mode - minimal services boot logging Enabled

Then make drive verification says C and D are clean. Then boot in safe mode.

The Thing is that it only want to boot in safe mode!
- Let it boot alone.... Safe Mode
- Hit F8 then selected normal mode.... safe mode
- Scan-Disk+Defrag+AdAware+Ccleaner.... safe mode

Another problem is that I cannot install any progs, windows give me an error box saying that installer doesn't work in safe mode.

Please Help i spent like 5 hour on this without any result :p

Joey

Hi and welcome to TSG
Did you check the event viewer? Did you install something just prior to this happening? Did windows just update? If it will start in safe mode it is most likely one of the above that is causing the problem. Did you try doing a system restore to a time before this problem started?

If that IS a company laptop WHY does it not have an anti-virus program.

  1. Open Regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot
  3. Delete the subkey folder called OPTION
  4. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
  5. Delete the value called SAFEBOOT_OPTION
  6. Reboot and done

But seriously, no AV on a company laptop....... come on, its like you were asking for this to happen.
