Trying to boot Windows 10 in Safe Mode Problem?

Trying to boot Windows 10 in Safe Mode Problem? Topic: Use case sourceforge down
June 19, 2019 / By Rhetta
Question: Whenever I start Windows, a black screen comes up and I can't do anything other than shutting down my PC. I tried starting Safe Mode from the Boot option directly after the computer started but it looked really confusing and I didn't see anything with Safe Mode written on it. I selected the first one and the screen went black again. After shutting down, it said "disk read error occurred" or something liked that. It told to to restart pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL. The screen went black again and then after a long time, the screen for the automatic repair loading screen started loading. After that, nothing happened. What do I do? I just want to use my computer!

Windows 10 does not come with a safe mode as we knew it back previous versions. Since you did not list the make or model number, this is a generic answer. Some or all of it might help you. That error is a catch all for many different problems. It could be that the boot sector of the hard drive is corrupted or the OS is corrupted so badly that it is not seen as a boot device. The worse case scenario is the hard drive has failed completely. Try running a Windows System repair disc to see if it can fix the problem. With any luck it might find a problem it can repair. If you do not have one and can find someone who has the same version of Windows you do then you can use the link below to make one. If you downgraded to or have 10 you can create a install/repair thumb drive with the link below. This will allow you to try to repair 10 first and if that does not work do a fresh install. Make sure you have a good product key and all the drivers before starting a fresh install. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software... Use this link to get to repairing your system. http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2294-... You can skip down to the bottom part about using recovery to set it back to factory settings if there are no files you wish to recover. If that does not work, the next thing is to try to recover your files. For this you will need a bootable thumb drive(flash drive) so you can boot the lappy. This will also allow you to verify that the lappy and its hard drive is good and all you have is a Windows problems. You will need to find a working puter to download Unetbootin USB installer. You need to read the instruction carefully and know a little about Linux to use this. There can be dragons present if you do not understand what your doing. I make no guarantees. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ Once you make the bootable thumb drive you need to add a OS for it to boot. I recommend Linux Mint ISO. Its UI is similar to Windows. Download Cinnamon 32bit. http://linuxmint.com/ If you have a Windows 8 or above then you need to turn off secure boot and select boot from USB before using the thumb drive. The thumb drive boot will also allow you to check out the rest of the puter. It helps to have a thumb drive or a external drive hooked up when you boot so you can copy your data and files to. If it has a CD/DVD you can burn Linux Mint ISO right to a CD and boot with it. Once you got the bootable thumb drive created, insert it into one of the USB ports. Also plug in the medium you selected to copy your files to. Press the power button and start tapping the ESC key. This should bring up the boot menu. Select the USB thumb drive and it will boot to a menu asking if you want to start Linux Mint. Click on Mint and let the system boot. Find your hard drive and copy your files to your back up medium. If the hard drive is a SATA drive it will show as sda. If it has partitions then the first partition (C Drive) will show as sda1, the next partition will show as sda2 and so on. If you have 2 drives the next drive will show as sdbx. X being the partitions if it has any. Normally external drives show as sdd or sde. I have seen Linux recover data that people claimed could not be recovered. Keep in mind while looking for your files, and this is a Vista or above version of Windows, that you have to find your USER folder. The folder will look something like this. \Users\nameofuser\Documents. Repeat that for music, pictures, and videos. Lets see if the hard drive can be made to boot again.Since the repair options are not working your best bet is to reset the lappy back to clean install of 10. This will erase everything on the hard drive. Use the link below to install 10. http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html

Could be a problem with device drivers, hardware or software. This problem can be solved by uninstalling new softwares, updating device drivers and making minor configuration changes . From http://fixit.in/bluescreenofdeath.html . You can also run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

My sense is the boot sector or the first sector of windows is damaged. The rest of the harddrive may be okay....basically, certain parts of any harddrive are very critical. When you boot up, the program in your ROM/BIOS goes to the 1st sector of the hard drive and looks for more details and then it goes from there. Go to another computer and get chkdsk or similar and put that on a bootable floppy or cdrom and then go to the failing computer and start up with that and run chkdsk and see if it is fixable. If not, get a new hard drive as C: and put windows/linux there. Put the failing drive as your D: and you may be able to save your data. Good luck.

To resolve this issue you will need to boot into the recovery console, additional information and help with getting into the recovery console . In the recovery console type chkdsk /p to check to see if the disk drive is bad or marked as dirty. If errors are located during the check skip to the next section. If after performing this check it is unable to locating anything wrong with the hard disk drive, reboot the computer. If after performing this step the computer still has the same issue, reboot the computer and load back into the recovery console. Once back into the recovery console type chkdsk /r to locate any bad sectors and recover any data. If errors are located during the check skip to the next section. Once completed reboot the computer to determine if this has resolve your issue. If while running the above steps you encounter errors with the hard disk drive and/or the above steps do not resolve your issue it is likely your hard disk drive is failing or has already failed. To determine if this is the case it is recommended you run the Windows XP setup, delete all partitions, recreate the partitions, format the hard disk drive, and reinstall Windows XP. If errors are encountered during the creation of the partitions or the format process it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it should be replaced.

The auto repair takes a VERY long time. A disk read error normally indicates a hard drive fault requiring a replacement drive. If you interrupt the repair it can trash the system.
