moderated Re: Sound in Safe Mode?

Dave Durber

Hello Dave and anyone else on this thread:

I have a .reg file which is called, "Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg".

A few years ago, someone on this list posted a download link for this file, which is how I obtained the file. I used it successfully in Windows XP.

I am running Windows 7. I installed this .reg file the other day, and when I made the change in MSConfig to have Windows 7 restart in Safe Mode, and restarted Windows 7, the sound drivers were loaded and I heard the Windows 7 start up audio sound. I was able to use NVDA with no difficulty. I cannot guarantee the .reg file will work in Windows 10, but, there again, no one got anywhere, without trying.

If anyone would like this .reg file, contact me off-list, and I will reply to you as soon as possible, attaching the .reg file, with instructions. My email address is:

You don’t need site to help you in safe mode. You can find on the internet
an REG file to automatically turn on your sound in safe mode!

Someone needs to go into (safe mode) and change the function keys operation
for you. I had an HP which is the reason I know that. After that is done,
however, you can use the function keys like we are used to using them.

Here's another note. I also have an HP laptop and, in addition to that
missing application key, the F1 through Insert Keys don’t' work as I need
them to. I haven't gotten to having someone try to change the bios. I
mention this because sometimes that Shift F10 combination won't work
unless you also hit the FN key. Same goes for the Insert key. It's
rather annoying.

Hi All,
I have an HP lap top with a 101 type keyboard which means it has the numb
pad. There is an annoying problem. The key that is usually between the
ALT key and the CTRL key on the right side of the space bar is not there.
This was the key that we can use to open context menus mostly the same as
pressing the right mouse button. I miss having this function cause in
some applications routing the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor doesn't always
Does anyone who has an HP lap top with this missing key know a work around
or some key combination HP came up with to replace the key?

Thx -Steve
