I was having trouble staying in SAFEMODE to try to do some cleanup on my Laptop. The malware prevented my getting into safe mode and would cause the pc to just reboot normally. Because of this, I went into the msconfig>system config utility > boot.ini>
then placed a check in the safemode box. I rebooted.
Now its worse because it is now stuck with the BLACK screen safe mode choices. But It still wont go into safe mode and wont even reboot normally to reg windows mode.
It trys to reboot on its own after a countdown of 30 seconds. But a blue screen quickly flashes once. Then it tries to reboot over and over again no matter which option I pick
(last known config, safe mode networking, safe mode, safe with command, etc), it just tries to
reboot over and over again like a broken record.
I can get into phoenix BIOS by pushing F10 (or F12 I think), but I dont know what I can do there.
At this point, i just want my pc to be able to boot normally into Window, and I will see
what I can do in reg windows mode as far as cleaning the malware off my pc.
Please help in easy terms.
Thanks for your help in advance...
PS: Windows Home edition OEM sp2 IE7-HP pavillion 8100 laptop-
I have the original sealed discs that came with my 4 or so year old Laptop.
I just need to be walked step by step if I need to boot from them. I dont want to have to wipe everything out or have to do a fresh install, if I can at all avoid this....Sorry for the hassle.
My original main goal was to do cleanup in safe mode. Once I can get into the system config utility area, and UNCHECK the box in boot.ini for safemode, I may have to repost about getting into safe mode.
