Hey, i recently had my mainboard replaced since my old one caused my pc to crash at random times. That problem doesn't occur anymore but since then i sometimes face a different problem when i boot up my pc.
Once every two weeks or so i'll go to turn on my pc as usual and it starts like it usually does but then i get a screen that says "the system has POSTed in safe mode. This may be due to the previous POST failing or due to the pc having been forced to shut down by pressing the power button" or something along those lines after which i'm sent into the BIOS to boot windows from there.
I haven't made any changes to anything since i got it back from the IT shop and i never force shutdown when i turn it off at night. I was going to contact the IT shop about it but i'm worried they'll have me bring it in again which is a problem since i don't have a car and basically have to carry it there and it's quite a heavy case so i decided to ask here first.
Any help is appreciated!
 
Try this:

Click on Start.
Type msconfig. (This will bring up the System Configuration window.)
Go to the Boot tab.
If selected, remove the tick from Safe boot.
Click Apply and then OK.
Lastly, restart your computer.
See if this stops it from randomly posting to safe mode.

the option isn't checked. i called an IT store and they suggested reinstalling windows so i guess i'll be doing that sometime soon and report back on whether that solved the issue! either way i appreciate it!

You can also go to windows powreshell (admin) and type sfc /scannow. It will check your files and try to repair any it finds corrupted. See what it says.
