My Windows XP SP2 is stuck in Safe Mode. I would like to get it out without doing a "Repair" from the CD, if it will do that. I have checked the boot.ini and it appears to be consistant with some I have looked at online. It appears I may have some startup programs, missing although not sure.

Here is what it will not do:

It will not go into safemode using F8, it only offers bootup OS choices, of which I have only 1,Windows XP

It will not allow you to boot into the Recovery Mode of Windows XP using the CD-- it reboots.

The only way that I can get it into, "SafeMode", is to wait until I see the Windows Splash Screen, and then shut it down. It comes back up and offers me the choices of SafeMode, and I selected, /with networking, so I can get on the Internet.

It will not restore the computer to a time when the settings worked.
It will not do a "system restore" from the numerous choices I have selected

It will not run sfc/scannow in Dos or SafeMode

HELP PLEASE! Thanks in advance.

I fixed this problem right after I posted my thread. I uninstalled the video card drivers, which had never gave me any problems, and rebooted and reinstalled them. The computer came right up in full-mode.
In the interim, thanks to anyone who thought about helping me over the last couple of days, since no one did.
