MS Safe Mode

I went into Safe Mode on my laptop and now I cannot get out of it. I tried to boot from the CD but that made things worse! The laptop is now locked in the Safe Mode screen and will not be unlocked.

Assuming that you can get into Windows, even if in Safe Mode then Start, Run, type

msconfig

and click OK.

On the General tab tick 'Normal Startup' and on the Boot.Ini tab make sure /SAFEBOOT is NOT ticked. OK your way out and restart.

Unfortunately it does not get that far. It stops at the black screen which says "Safe mode" at each corner and Microsoft Windows etc along the top.

I think I may have to reinstall XP. How can I get that to happen.

The system is going round in circles. When I try to reboot from the CD I get a meesage saying Windows XP Setup cannot run under Safe Mode. Set up will restart. And it all starts up again.
