If the option for System Restore is enabled, you can without too much effort to try to return the system in working condition. By default, System Restore is enabled. There are two options: a quicker option is to use the Last Known Good Configuration menu of that particular choice. In this selection using recent settings that worked. If the problem is not resolved, you can try to restore the system to an earlier time. This happens when you start Windows XP in Safe Mode and run the application System Restore: click start, click all programs, accessories, system tools and then system restore. Then simply follow the instructions to recover in time when you want. Mentioned recovery system can save you many problems, such as the operating system unable to load in normal mode or continuous drooping and restart caused by the installation of software or a new version of the driver. When installing any driver or software, it creates a “restore point” and thus at issue may return to a previous state. If your system can not be loaded normally, but you can not start safe mode in Windows, it means that you have a software problem. He is due to the driver used by any hardware device or installed by the program. If you get a system crash before to load the operating system interface, or display BSOD ( “blue screen of death”), this means that the problem most likely is related to the driver. But if problems occur after the onset of the graphic interface and obtain a crash or system works very slowly, this means that the problem most likely relates to software that Windows tries to load in its startup.

After exposing the benefits of safe mode, we get to the question how to enter this mode. Is one way and is very easy. To go into Safe Mode, you must press F8 key on your keyboard during boot, just before the bar loading, which appears at the bottom to reach the right edge of the screen. Will appear a black screen on which are inscribed the possible ways to boot. You will see several options Safe Mode:
• Safe Mode – loads only the absolute minimum of drivers;
• Safe Mode with Networking – an opportunity to connect with other computers through the network;
• Safe Mode with Command Prompt – instead of loading the GUI interface of Windows Explorer, run the command prompt;
• Enable VGA Mode – run Windows in 640×480 pixels resolution. This possibility will be useful if you mistakenly set the resolution, which is not supported by your monitor;
• Last Known Good Configuration – run Windows, using the previous configuration that has worked;
• Starts Windows Normally – hardly needs explanation;
• Reboot – Reboot the computer.
There are several modes that are irrelevant to the topic of this article. As you know, Windows XP comes in Pro and Home versions. And in both Safe Mode is the same as the opportunities and options. The only difference is that the Home version of the Administrator account is available only in safe mode, and is the standard account for it. Not require a password for the Administrator account, which is prejudicial to the security of the system, as anyone who has physical access to your computer, you can use Safe Mode to remove or change the passwords of other accounts. But this feature if you look from a positive angle is quite useful, because if you forget your password, you can easily change it in Safe Mode.
