Issues with Windows® XP® Safe Mode
What are the common problems which cause the safe mode to stop working on Windows XP?
The Safe Mode is a state in which the system might start with limited resources, all the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows for identifying the problem. With the help of the safe mode function, the user could locate and fix troubles within a system. Safe mode loads only the basic video driver with a low resolution, and the desktop icons might also have changed location because of the low resolution. So in some cases, the safe mode would not work properly due to certain reasons such as virus attack, or due to the use of corrupted Windows Operating System. Installation of new hardware into the system may prevent the computer to get into the Safe Mode. When you load Windows XP Operating System in the Safe Mode, it displays errors, restarts or does not load. These issues are likely if the system encounters a major corruption with Windows.
Following are the common problems due to which Safe Mode stops working on Windows XP and tips to fix the issues:
- Virus problem
- Corrupted Windows
- Tips to fix the issues
The main reason is the virus problem, due to which the safe mode in Windows XP stops working. Viruses are the unwanted programs which harmfully cause the functioning of the media center. The virus infected in your system might corrupt the important files which are necessary for the working of the Safe Mode. And as a result, this virus infection causes the deletion of the important files and also makes the registry entries corrupted.
If your Operating System is not genuine, then it causes issues while you start your system in Safe Mode. And also if the Windows XP Operating System is not properly installed or if the system files get corrupted due to the improper installation of the Operating System, it causes the issues while working with the Safe Mode.
In order to avoid the problem related to the Safe Mode, you need to install an efficient antivirus program which helps to remove the virus and other malicious program infected in your system. You need to verify the installation of the Operating System whether it is properly installed and all the files are installed correctly. Only use the authentic websites for downloading purpose. You could also resolve the issues by reinstalling the Windows XP Operating System.
