  1. Can't even get to safe mode after dpc_watchdog_violation


    I have a Lenovo laptop. I've been getting the dpc_watchdog_violation BSOD and tried various ways to get to safe mode, but the computer always freezes again before i can get anywhere. Most of the time I can't even get to the point where you select troubleshoot.

    The farthest I've been is pressing 5 to restart in safe mode, but it got stuck on the Lenovo logo and crashed. I follow these instructions https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode

    Alot times, i see the windows boot manager option to select but hitting enter doesnt do anything.

    This happened to me a couple weeks ago and I was able to get to system restore and operate as usual until now. This time is much more severe. I cant even make it to safe mode or sys restore.

    Please help. My IT proficiency is low fyi.

  2. Password not accepted in Safe mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    Have you tried all the above steps suggested by Sangeeta Sarkar on September 13, 2015.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you trying to login the Microsoft account or the Local account in safe mode?
    • Did you try with only safe mode or safe mode with networking?
    • What is the critical error you are getting?

    If you are using Windows 10. To go to safe mode you have to follow the below steps.

    If you are able to go to login screen in normal mode try the below steps to go to safe mode with networking.


    • At the login screen click on the power symbol.

    • Hold SHIFT + Click Restart.

    • After restarting your system, select the Troubleshoot option.

    • Select advanced options under
      Troubleshoot screen.

    • Click on Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart and follow the onscreen steps to go to
      Safe Mode with networking and check if you are able to login.

    [*]
    Please get back with more information, we will be glad to help you further.

  3. Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10  


    I am stuck in Safe Mode in spite of following all the suggested steps to go back to Normal Startup - Like opening file location of msconfig.exe & running as Administrator. The computer I am trying to get out of safe mode has just been updated from Windows 7.

    Stuck in safe mode in windows 10

    Safe mode is intended to help fix most, if not all problems within an operating system, it's not good if we got stuck on it. To correct this, we suggest that you follow the steps below to exit out of Safe mode:

    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      keys on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box and press
      Enter.
    • Under General tab, put a check on Normal Startup option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.

    Let us know if you are able to exit out of Safe mode with these steps.
