ok this has really been bother me. im not very skilled with computers and everything.
but my problem is my computer is stuck on safe mode. its my olny choice. if i try to normally start up my computer it gets the the windows loading screen then everything just stop. its like it turned onto stand by mode with out me choosing to. a black screen and a keyboard that doesnt work. my computer doesnt play sound, let download anything

iv tried everything system restore (system restore acts useless in this case) and asking my smart friends they themselves have never seen anything like it. im pretty sure its a virus of some sort.

any ideas?

See the following Bleeping Computer tutorial:

How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Scroll down to the section "Problems that can occur by forcing Safe Mode using the System Configuration Utility"

forcing safe mode wasnt really my idea.
safe mode with net working is the only way i can still use my computer to some extent.
other wise if i start windows normally it does the stand by thing and i cant use my key board.

and the whole section that you listed about safe mode isnt the same as mine

Try running the System File Checker (SFC) while in Safe Mode.

How to Use SFC.EXE to Repair System Files

Also, you could try running chkdsk on the hard drive.
  • Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties".
  • When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error Checking" section.
  • When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now".
  • A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished, it will restart into Windows automatically.
