    hi.
    I know a bit about computers but i ain't the best an ain't bragging.
    But i know a problem when i have one.
    I wanted to get into safe mode in windows but cant.
    I press f8 then select my operating system then the drivers start to load windows in safe mode.

    The problem i get is it hangs on one driver, so I'm thinking this driver could be missing or is corrupt.
    I have run chkdsk an have use the options to fix all errors but windows still wont start in safe mode.

    I checked for Virus and Spy-ware but still no joy.
    Also if this driver is missing or corrupt i cant replace it because i cant get into safe mode.

    I have also tried the sfc /scannow in cmd but keep getting the message please insert windows xp disk in CD drive D:
    The disk is in there i put it in ???? :confused: ????

    Also don't ask me to do a restore as i have no restore points to go back to as i cleaned up the comp a few days ago.

    Any suggestions as to whats going on??

    Thanks in advanced

    Just to clarify:

    You are able to boot into XP but just not in Safe Mode?

    Is your XP CD a full version or an OEM disk?

    Are you sure your CD drive is working?

    Can you boot the XP CD or run it from within windows?
