Windows 7 only boots in safe mode

It happens that Windows 7 is loaded only in safe mode. Of course, this indicates serious problems in the system. But still it’s better than nothing. At least there is a chance to do something to repair the operation, or back up all the important files and then reinstall the system.

Why can this happen

There can be a lot of reasons why Windows only agrees to work in a safe mode. Here are just some of them:

  • Important system files damaged;
  • Were changed to incorrect operating system settings;
  • There was a hardware failure;
  • Or a driver-level crash;
  • The file system was damaged;
  • It can also happen as a result of a viral attack.

This list can actually be continued and continued. And the search for ways out of this situation will depend on the reasons found.

What can I do

First of all, if Windows is still loading in a safe mode, this suggests that its basic components are in working condition. In this case, you can try to “clear” failed system files. To do this, you will need to insert the system disk with Windows 7, or the disk for disaster recovery of the system and follow the directions on the screen. Often helps and pressing the F8 key before loading the system, and then selecting the item: “Download using the latest workable configuration.Download using the latest workable configurationYou can also try to make a system rollback.

To do this, right-click on the system disk icon, select “Properties” and the “Service” tab. Here you will need to click on “Error Management” and also mark the “Search and correct errors” check box. After checking, you will have to restart the computer.Search and fix errorsIf there are suspicions that the computer was attacked by viruses, then you will need to scan the entire system with an antivirus. It is also recommended to check if there are problems with drivers. To do this, right-click on the Computer icon, select the Properties item, and then the Device Manager. In the new window, you need to check whether the exclamation or question marks are next to a device. If so, then drivers will need to reinstall or update.Checking drivers for errorsDownload can also be hindered by any software components that are automatically loaded when the system starts. They can, for example, conflict among themselves. Today, such a problem is quite rare, but still encountered. To disable the autorun of all foreign components and services, you can keep the Shift key pressed all the time during download. In this case, only those components that are necessary for the correct operation of Windows itself will be entrenched. Next, you will need to carefully review the list of applications that are in the Auto Download section. It is possible that some will have to be excluded. Finally, if all the proposed did not help, and Windows 7 starts only in safe mode as before, then most likely it will only help complete reinstallation of Windows OS. First you need to copy all the most important files and documents, and then proceed to
