    I have OS X, and whenever I start up it starts in "Safe Boot". How can I get my machine to start normally. Thanks

    Yes it has a safe boot mode, OS X's equivalent of booting with extensions off.

    Do it the same way...

    So use Keyboard Viewer to see if the shift key is stuck, other than that the only other thing I can think of is a USB device causing a problem.

    I hope this information will help somebody who has this problem. I had this problem when attaching external USB keyboard. Once the keyboard was detached, the problem was gone.
