Safe Mode lookalike screen and no cursor

  Daveken 04:29 18 Aug 2006

Hi troops,

I got a big problem with my laptop which runs on Windows ME and Pentium III. Everytime I turn it on, it as expected goes through the normal booting process. The problem is when the booting process is completed, my laptop displays what look like a safe-mode window with the cursor no where to be found. As a result, I am unable to do anything apart from carrying out the ctrl, alt and delete process as an alternative way of shutting down the whole system. On another positive note, everything functions normally when I open in the real safe mode. The cursor is there to move around.

As a result of this problem, my dvd drive cannot run any dvd even in the real safe mode. Also, I cannot install any new program unto my laptop.

Please kindly advise. Thanks

Have you tried going into safe mode and using system restore to a point before this started?
