O.P. Huh?  need help reinstalling windows
this all started when i wanted to scan the computer in safe mode. so wht i went to msconfig and clicked on the safe boot thingy. when i restarted the computer the blue screen error came up before windows got to the login screen. so i decided to reinstall windows but since the safe boot thing is enabled it dosent allow me to have the setup.

is there any way to disable the safe boot without going into windows?

Just making things clear before I help.

You cant install windows because the "safe boot" or boot in safe mode is on..? Don't you usually just boot from the CD..?

So what do you mean by "it dosent allow me to have the setup."

Thanks =]

yes. u can enable safe mode from startup on windows. After i went through the process of booting from the cd it takes me to the actual setup screen. But when the actual setup screen startsup it tells me i cant do it in safemode

I think I understand. You can get into windows in safemode but you cant format.

Boot straight from the CD. Check your motherboards manual for direction on how to or do a simple google search

oh. in that case, you can get back into normal mode by hitting "F8" before the Windows logo comes up (you'll get 4 or 5 seconds of a completely blank screen between your POST screen and the Windows logo -- press F8 then) and choose "start windows normally."
