    How to enable safe mode on this asus compter


    Greetings everyone,

    This is my first post and i tried to post an introduction but Iím on this tiny little phone and I couldnít see clearly how to do it. Thank you for your help in advance.

    I have 2 problems, but one at a time.

    I got into safe mode on this asus and no where is anything about safe mode. Its minimal.

    I need to get in here with the networking in order to restore the wireless driver from realtek.

    I cannot shut the computer down because the start button on this box doesnít work anymore.

    I did see when you go to the windows start and click Run and type in msconfig and go to the boot tab on bottom left side i see ďBoot optionsĒ with an empty box you could click on and next to this box it Safe boot. Then there are 4 choices listed underneath Safe boot that is greyed out and one of them is Network which is what Iím looking for.

    I donít think safe mode is enabled since there is no sign of it in the bios at all.

    I panicked when happened and i dunno what to do from here. Thank you for your consideration.

    Boot into Safe Mode - TenForumsTutorials

    By the way, Safe mode is a Windows mode and the Bios is not interested in it at all.

    You do not need to be in Safe mode to install a driver.

    Do consider getting somebody to fix the on/off switch before you run into any other problems.

    Best of luck,

    If you have a better way to get the driver without an internet please explain.

    I was gonna boot into safe mode and get the driver. This browser I used cleaned up when I closed it and it took out my
    wireless driver for the internet.

    I have no idea why you are suddenly referring to not having the internet.

    Yes, this all started because my wireless driver disappeared so I figured I would boot into safe mode with networking.
    Sorry, I didn't mention it because my train of thought was trying to type this stuff and see through these glasses on this tiny little phone. It's hard to see the small print and buttons. Its been a long day.

    You can install the driver in normal Windows. You do not need Safe mode to install a driver.

    Is your WiFi adapter shown in Device manager?
    What driver does it say it is using?

    If you do not have internet on your computer at the moment you should be able to download the driver from Asus to your phone then copy it across to your computer using a USB cable.

    I'm staying some where it isn't my place and I have never seen one since I have been here. This situation is very limited
    and the networking with safe mode was the easiest i could think of.

    I think Safe mode with networking actually means Safe mode with Ethernet networking.
    If you cannot get your normal Windows to connect to the internet, I do not expect you to be able to get it to connect in Safe mode.

    Download the driver installation file from Asus onto your phone and copy it across to your computer using a USB cable.
    If the small screen is too awkward, go to a friend's house / use an internet cafe / ... to download the driver to a USB stick.

    Please describe the WiFi fault symptoms as they appeared on your computer.
    Please include what made you think a faulty driver was the cause.
