XP wont boot in safe mode..will boot in normal mode
Hello, Hi guys. I bought this PC as a refirb and have never been able to boot up in safe mode. I can enter safe mode and select what type of boot, it will then go through the B/W window rolling screen for a few secs then go back to the safe mode select screen .. I now have a bug in it and need to get into safe mode.. When I do a AGV , Kaspersky, etc full scan the PC does a full shut down then reboots.. The error code that comes up as it reboots after shuting down is C:Docume~1\user\locals~WER2178.dir00 \sysdat. that is noe of the codes...
OS is XP pro SP3, Im not too PC savy but help is a long way.. Thanks JIM

Sounds like some bad RAM. You can try using one RAM chip at a time.
If you think it may be virus related, you can create an AVG rescue boot disc, to scan the hard drive.
