Restart the computer, do not press the F8 key, and let it start normally, if it brings up the same black screen menu, with multiple options you should be able to "start normally" it's the bottom option.

Can you confirm that, having followed the advice given in response #1, if you start the computer normally it still goes straight to Safe Mode without you doing anything at all?

What I am trying to do is determine whether the problem is that you can't get to normal Windows or some internet problem.

If you are in Safe Mode then access to the Internet might be limited (so it could be nothing to do with the Internet itself).

Why were you attempting a repair?

Please don't double post - stick with this thread.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi thannks for response when I start my comp it takes a while to open on windows page when i put my password in the screen goes black and starts loading windows files then the black screen with LTD access opens up and it tells me the comp has started in safe mode with limitations its then I restart the comp and press F8 to bring the menu up that allows me to click on directory service repair this then allows me internet functions but I cannot skype and when on fb the chat windows do not open up for me. My comp was freezing on and off so In case I lost files this was obviously not a wise move as I cannot reverse the situation when I am on the menu theres one that says start windows normally but this just takes me back to windows with safe mode limitations hope you can help thanx

System Configuration
1. Once the computer boots into safe mode, click the Start button, type msconfig in the search box, and then, in the list of results, click msconfig.exe. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. In the System Configuration dialog box, click the Boot tab.
3. Under boot option Uncheck the box next to Safe boot and apply the settings and restart the computer. Figure 9.

OK, from your explanation I see the problem as your computer booting to Safe Mode instead of Windows. The reason your Internet is limited is because you are in Safe Mode (that limits all sorts of things, for diagnostic purposes).

If this only happened fairly recently it might be worth trying System Restore from Safe Mode. Just type it in Search and then click on it. Choose a restore point just before this problem came along then wait for it to complete.

If this doesn't work out then please provide the information requested in response #5 above.
