Hello-

I am also not able to open in safe mode.  Gringo_PR who was an enormous amount of help ridding my computer of a virus had suggested I also open a topic.

I can provide more information or open a different topic if you think that is best--I don't want to take away from the original topic requester's issue.

Thank you!

I know that the topic you posted in may look very much like your problem, but there usually differences which makes the treatment different.

 

Please explain exactly what is or is not happening with this computer.

 

It would also help to know the make and model of this computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hello - I am sorry for the delay in responding.  I needed to have a virus issue resolved before I could continue.

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/490505/checking-to-see-if-my-system-is-clean-after-trojan-attack/

 

My computer was custom made locally with an AMD Athlon II x 2 250 3.0 GHZ processor.   I have a Gigabyte GA-M68M-S2P motherboard if that's of any help.  I'm running XP home edition.

 

Here’s what happens when I turn on my computer:

1.  The Bios screen comes up, goes to black.

 

2.  The next screen comes up.  It states:

 

"Loading Operating System...

Boot from CD/DVD:"

 

This screen disappears almost immediately and the next screen comes up:

 

"Select the Operating System to Start: 

     Microsoft Windows Recovery Console

     do not select this (debugger enabled)

 

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Press ENTER to continue.

Seconds until highlighted choice will be started automatically: 1

For troubleshooting and advanced startup options for Windows, press F8."

 

Note:  I have tried pressing F8 but it doesn't have any effect.  I have tried pressing and holding F8 throughout each process and nothing seems to get me to safe mode.

 

3.  This screen then goes away very quickly and the system then opens to the XP welcome screen that leads to the desktop.

 

Please let me know what other information could help you diagnose this problem.

Thank you for your help and suggestions-- JcbsDa
