I have a HP G60 laptop that went into safe mode by itself and I can not get it to start in normal mode. Running windows 7 home version.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

DLeonR,

Click on the Windows orb and where it says Search programs and files, type in MSCONFIG and hit the Enter key. Click on the Boot tab and see if it's selected in the same way as below.

If it is, remove the check mark for Safe boot and then click OK. If it asks you to restart, do this and see if it'll let you boot up in Normal Mode after that.

Thanks LochLomonder, that did the trick.

I want to thank you for your reply. However, I tried this before coming to the forum and it did not work for me. Thanks again awaj.
