    Normally when you go into safe mode, your background will show SAFE MODE in all
    four corners.
    and many functions will not work, such as networks..

    If your computer is in Safe Mode it will have the words Safe Mode in each of the four corners of the screen.

    If you computer froze going into safe mode this is a problem that should be taken care of. When you say that you reset the computer did you reformat the computer and re-install Windows?

    Has the computer been taken in to safe mode since this?
