The screen with the startup options is kind of hard to get sometimes , especially if you have a fast computer.
Turn it off
Turn it on
Start tapping the F8 key.
It may take a few tries but you should get the startup options screen
Use the arrow key[s] to hilite Safe Mode & press enter.
The accepted method of getting the startup options screen used to be that you wait until the unit finshes POST or the logo goes away to start tapping F*.
With the newer, faster, units that doesn't work.
When I turn this one on I don't see anything until it starts loading XP .
