How to Fix My PC If I Can't Even Get to Safe Mode

Save

Safe Mode is the typical refuge for an individual plagued with computer problems, allowing the user to navigate through folders and files without loading potentially problematic files into memory. In the unfortunate event that you are unable to boot into Safe Mode, that indicates that the operating system is no longer stable. The best course of action to fix your computer at this point is to perform a full reinstallation of the operating system, refreshing all files on the machine.

Things You'll Need

  • Windows installation CD
  • Insert the Windows CD into your computer's optical drive and restart the machine.

  • Press a key when indicated by the onscreen prompts to boot from the CD.

  • Press "Enter" to begin the setup and installation procedure.

  • Move through the screens until after agreeing to the EULA (end-user licensing agreement).

  • Hit the "R" key to trigger a repair installation of your operating system. This will overwrite all of the damaged files on your hard drive, replacing them with working copies and allowing you to boot your computer.
