Dear Sir, the computer never goes to windows unless a password is entered. I can get to the troubleshooting screen, but all options take back to password. The password i enter never works. 

This all because i chose in msconfig to start in safe mode. I am stuck.

Is there a startup file i can download from another computer to use a usb stick?

Thank you for the additional information, Chris. Since you cannot boot the computer in Windows or in Safe Mode, we recommend that you follow the steps below:

  1. Download the installation file (Windows 10) from this link and follow the instructions under "Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC (click to show more or less information)".
  2. Once done, boot the computer from the device where you saved the installation file (Windows 10).
  3. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.
  4. At the Command Prompt, type c: and press Enter.
  5. After that, type bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy and press Enter.
  6. Type exit and press Enter to get out of the Command Prompt.
  7. Remove the bootable device and restart the computer.
  8. While booting the computer, press F8 to get to the Advanced Boot Options and from there you will see "Start Windows Normally".

Doing the steps above will boot the computer normally.

Keep us posted.
