Re: Safe mode needed or help when Jaws is silent at start up

Hello there;

Well, to answer your question,

Yes, you can do a system restore while working in safe mode.
The trick is however, to have speech, otherwise?
One would require sight.
This is what the earlier discussion was about.
Having a registry file, which would allow one to have NVDA work in safe

Hope this helps.

Are you able to do a system restore ?, re safe mode my desktop w7 with
Msoutlook is so fussy about being closed down delicately, a bit sharply it
often complains when I next put it on and suggests it work in safe mode.
However a recent post was describing a type of safe mode that was quite
different and complicated
good luck dorothy

Dear list,

I was making great success with Windows 7 and JAWS 12 in my bootcamp
partition. suddenly Jaws stopped talking. this happens occasionally in my
experience so I just restarted my computer. I have been restarting a lot as
I had done a lot of updating in the past day or so. Just before loosing the
sound I was tabbing around in Windows explorer and just prior to that I had
used a program called Sharp keys to re map some keys on my key board. I
have no sighted assistance so restarting with no sound is a big problem.
Luckily when I restart out of the bootcamp partition the Apple side works

Is there a way to start Windows in safe mode? I have forgotten how. Also
will Jaws start up in safe mode?

I have some tiny bit of light perception and it seems like windows is doing
something but no sound at all not even the windows sound any longer.

I have tried pressing F 12, I think that is volume up. I've tried
pressing the start button and arrowing down once then pressing j for jaws.
Again no speech.

Unless I get some tips I'll wait until sighted help sometime in the the next
few days.

I also tried re starting more then once and unplugged all usb devices but
still no sound.

Thanks for any tips or tricks!

Thanks to this list I pretty much had everything in order and was about to
start working on MS word when this happened. Rats!
