Q: Why does my laptop shut off at start up? I can get in on safe mode with internet but not safe mode.

    Odds are there is some program set to run at start up that is causing you grief.

    You can try checking event viewer to see if there are any critical errors there, or run msconfig to see what programs you have set to start up normally and try to find the problem there.

    Alternatively you can just do a system restore.

    Also, since safe made with internet is working I can provide remote tech support for a fee. E-mail me at mark (at) askageek.com if you’re interested.

    *Hold power button down for 30 secs,
    *Put only power supply in, do not put battery in
    *Turn laptop on
