Safe mode is a diagnostic environment that allows you to troubleshoot issues that might arise during normal operation. It runs with a minimum set of drivers and makes the screen appear different. Once you've corrected the issue, restart your computer in normal mode.

You can easily boot into Safe Mode from the login screen of your hp laptop if it's not working properly. Simply press and hold the F8 key while the computer is booting. This will bring up a menu of options including Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Another way to get into Safe Mode is by using the System Configuration tool, also known as msconfig. It allows you to disable and re-enable device drivers and programs that may be causing the problem you're having.

This method is a little more complicated than the previous two, but it saves a lot of time in the long run. However, it doesn't work on every Windows PC.

In order to enter Safe Mode, you'll need to use a user account that has administrator rights. The process can be a bit tricky, so it's important to consult a computer technician before you try it.
