|I can't get the screen you are talking about to come up, when i press f8 all i get is a blue screen that says " Please select boot device" then gives me these 3 options|
( that was what i was talking about "different locations") i've tried all 3 and still nothing. I dont know if there is anything special i have to do to get to where i can start in safemode, go to last known config. that worked, start normal, screen but i've tried every f # on the keyboard and nothing all i can get to is the bios screen and the little blue screen i was talking about when i press f8. if you have anymore ?'s please ask, i am absolutely stumped.
