I haven't been able to get on in a while because my computer is totally screwed. Right now I'm using safe mode which really SUCKS!!! I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies can tell me how to reboot my computer to where it would be just like it was when I first got it. Back to factory settings & all my stuff deleted. I have tried everything else I know to do , with no luck. So please if you can find out , or if you know. Fill me in!! Thanks alot !!!! It'll save me tons of money!!!

go to whatever manurfacturer makes your computer, google their customer service or techincal help line and ask them any quesrions you have. they'll be able to help you out a lot better then any of us could

if you have the papers and books from when you bought  your computer look for system recovery. .good luck! also do a google search for whatever the problem is. you may find answers that way.

What type of computer do you have? This will help me be able to figure out what to tell you to do. You can PM me if you need to.

I have a Dell. I don't know if that helps you or not. I don't have the papers or a disk , i got this computer from Rent A Center. I know they can fix it & that's my last option if I can't figure out how to restore it. Thanks

When mine did that I paid a guy $65 to restore it to like new, but he was able to save all of my pics and important files. I have no clue how to do it myself.

If you can't get the other things to work that people mentioned, I had the same thing where I could only run it in safe mode.  Ended up my hard drive crashed.   Wasn't too expensive to get a new one and they saved my pics and stuff.   I ran it on safe mode for a good year before it crashed but it sucked not being able to use everything else.   Hope you get it fixed.

If its not paid off yet...take it back to Rent A Center...they will give you a replacement until yours is fixed. Won't cost you anything.
