I wanted to start up my desktop in safe mode.when i pressed the F8 key it takes me to the boot menu screen. I clicked on Safe mode option but drops back to the menu option again.
It shows "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardward or software change might have caused this. if your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folderse, choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked. If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally" Then the options are listed Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt Last known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Start Windows Normally"
I can start up in normal Then i tried in msconfig. In BOOT.INI tab i ticked the box to start up in safe mode. Then restarted the computer
Now again that message shows Doesn't matter which of the five options I choose, they all cycle back to the same screen after a few moments of attempting to boot. please help
