My Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop running Windows 7 will only boot up into safe mode and I can't get the system to restore to a previous point. How do I get out of safe mode and fully operational again? This situation apparently came out of an automatic update to the system installed over night as the computer was fine when I went to bed and was locked in safe mode when I got up .... Can anyone speak to this situation with the fix?
Please try the below mentioned steps and check if the computer boots normally:
1. Click "Start".
2. Click "Run".
3. Type "msconfig" and hit "Enter".
4. Click the "Boot" tab at the top.
5. Uncheck the "Safe boot" option.
6. Click "Apply" and then click "OK".
7. Restart the computer, it should boot normally now.
Thanks, finally works once I followed those EXACT steps. Once you hit APPLY go directly to START and then directly to RESTART. I was doing the steps above but after I originally pressed APPLY I would go and click a few other buttons just to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Doing this somehow nullified what I just "APPLIED". So again, DIRECTLY to RESTART.
