Try repeatedly hitting the F8 key when first starting the computer. Why do you want to boot up in safe mode ? Are you experiencing some sort of problem ?

If you have any bootable CDs or DVDs in (a) drive(s), remove it(them).

"Try repeatedly hitting the F8 key when first starting the computer".

Don't hold the key down.
You may need to start doing that immediately after you hear one beep from the mboard, or after the monitor led turns from blinking or yellow or orange to green.

if your computer can boot into windows then go to
start > run and type
press enter and in look under boot.ini tab. Check the box for safeboot. and restart your computer. it will boot into safe mode automatically on restart.
You must change it back to get back to regular booting.

Change Is Good
