What is Windows Safe Mode?

If you are reading this webpage you must have already heard (or rather read) about Windows safe mode. After your computer crashed with the STOP 0x0000007e, the system automatically offered to start up in Safe Mode.

Using simple language, Safe Mode loads a “truncated” version of Windows where you can perform only the basic (but vitally important) troubleshooting tasks required to remove various PC issues. Safe Mode provides access to Windows interface without loading unnecessary drivers or programs. For this reason, Internet connection, printers, scanners or other peripherals won’t be accessible in Safe Mode. Also, Windows will be using VGA graphics mode instead of the normal graphics device driver and the so familiar desktop will be displayed in 16 colors and 640 x 480 resolution. Looks queer, but that is absolutely normal. The words “Safe Mode” in each corner in the desktop will be reminding you that you are using Safe Mode.

Certainly, you can try removing previously installed drivers of software if you remember that STOP 0x0000007e began to occur after these installations. You can also try to undo system settings changes if you have done any before 0x0000007 appeared.
