Booting Computer

  Abel 14:35 22 Oct 2005

I'm having a look at my friend's computer which will not boot in the usual manner but will happily boot in Safe Mode. Can anyone suggest how I can overcome this please?

Incidentally, the computer seems to be in Sleep Mode and the disk light is on almost continuously

Look in Control Panel/System/Device Manager for problem devices, ! in a yellow box, or red crosses, remove them, reboot.

I was able to resolve my problem by using 'Safe Mode Troubleshooter' and using its 'System Configuration Utility-Selective Startup'
