How to boot to Windows XP Safe Mode

 

 

 

1. If the system is already turned off, turn it on.

 

2. Begin tapping the F8 key every few seconds as the system boots up until the screen offering

the Safe Mode option appears (if Windows launches before you can choose a Safe Mode, restart your

computer and try again).

 

3. You should see the following options:

 

Safe Mode

Safe Mode with Networking

Safe Mode with Command Prompt


(other options may also be available)

 

Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key.

 

4. The system will now boot into Safe Mode.
(You may receive a prompt asking if you really want to boot into Safe Mode. Choose Yes.)

 


DESCRIPTION
Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that Windows XP can start in, with minimal configuration
and generic drivers so that system errors can possibly be corrected.

 

Once entering Safe Mode, the user can execute commands and load devices one at a time.

Safe Mode is also used to remove or delete files which are otherwise "locked" or "in use" during

normal use.

 

While an operating system is in safe mode, it will have reduced functionality,
but it is easier to isolate problems because many non-core components are disabled.
