  • Safe mode is a special mode which only loads the critical drivers which are needed to run Windows. This mode is used to diagnostic issues which prevent you from strt your Windows in normal mode.


    Which issue do you have?

  • Hi,

     

    Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not run in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

     

    Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly, or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes. If a recently installed program, device, or driver prevents Windows from running correctly, you can start your computer in safe mode and then remove the program that is causing the problem.

     

    Reference:

     

    Start your computer in safe mode

     

    Regards,

     

    Sabrina
