On the quest to update drivers, something awful happened apparently. Everythings going acording to plan, boot into safemode to run driver cleaner... then my computer reboots. Now it restarts every time I get to the login screen. No worries, repair install! I cant fucking get it out of safe mode. Yes i've tried hitting f5, telling it to boot normally, not happening. Still safe mode. I cant finish the install in safe mode, and need to get out of it. I dont want to completely reformat, I really need some things there. How the christ can I possibly fix this?

Might try F8 or something like that. If I remember right that brings up a boot options should give like 4 options. One of them should be normal. Dont quote me I might be wrong but its worth a shot.

Here was the problem. Computer rebooted, and somehow ended up in safe mode? I couldnt get it out of safemode cause it would just instantly restart the second I clicked a user. Repair install wouldnt work because computer would end up in safe mode again.

Needless to say I just said fuck it and just reformated. Goodbye files, I will miss thee. :(
