I did an vista upgrade to Windows 7 Beta. Whenever I log off, restart, hibernate, switch users, or even shut down my HP Dv6815 my pc goes to the black screen asking me if i want to start windows normally or in safe mode. Anyone know why this is happening? Any suggestions PLEASE
I do have a suggestion...
you could type in 'msconfig' in the run command from the start menu.
then click click the boot tab & make sure safe boot is not automatically enabled... (in the boot options)
also make sure windows 7 is the only OS starting up...(above)
(if this is your case)

let me know if it helped...
