Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?

Computer keeps rebooting into safe mode after trying to Restore

\015 I own a Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop with windows vista OS. I had to boot into safe mode to remove an MP3 file from Limewire that was corrupt and now my computer rebbots into safe mode all the time. I have tried to boot in normal mode, i have tried system restore but nothing works. my virus scan no longer works, i can not access the internet for online solutions. Basically I am locked in safe mode and can't seem to fix it. Im trying to do a system restore on my sony viao with Vista Premium. After trying to restore it reboots into Safe Mode and never restores. I have a rogue infection thats why Im having to do the restore. What would be causing this not to restore or is there a way to completely restore it the way it should?\015

Answers :

Hold down the number "0"key and continue to hold it down as you turn on the laptop. Keep holding the key and then if the laptop makes a sound let go and hopefully it will go into the internal factory restore for your laptop.

If it doesn't then you'll need to restore your laptop with your recovery disks.

Either way the hard drive needs to be wiped out in order to get rid of the virus since it did irrepairable damage to the operating system.

If you need help with restoring your laptop back to factory defaults, let me know and I'll walk you thru it.

Virus? My computer has been sending error messages that I have a potential virus threat and provides virus protection options. WHen I select them it takes me to an advertiser page. Also, my wallpaper is changes and will not change back. When I select ctr -alt- dlt a message appears basically stating that the administrator has blocked this option.

Firstly, the most important thing you can do is keep up-to-date virus protection-either a paid program like "Mcafee" or a free version, (which I'm not sold on but better than nothing)like AVG.....available here:http://free.avg.com/download-avg- ... Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
