Is the computer actually booting up to the desktop, or is it showing the boot menu? safe mode highlighted? if so, press Enter to boot the computer in safe mode then run scandisk to correct any hard drive errors. Were there any errors at shutdown?? If there is a problem at shutdown the computer will default to the boot menu the next time you start the computer. Please provide more info. Thanks.
need help, please. After shutting the computer down one night, the next day the computer would not come on and showing safe mode. The computer is a hp and OS is win 98.
