Hello Everyone. I can't seem to get my computer in safe mode. I could like literally 10 minutes before, but now I can't. I press F8, and it usually leads me to the screen with the options of safe mode, with networking, etc... and then it would lead me to the screen to choose Windows XP Home edition, and I press enter and it will load to the safe mode. But now, all of a sudden, when I press F8 it leads me straight past the choosing safe mode screen, and onto the Windows XP home ediiton screen. When I press enter, I dont go into safe mode, but enter my regular screen. That is conflicting because I get the BSOD right when the regular mode starts up. Can anyone please help me with this?

Can you get into taskmanager? If so maybe try this to do a system restore.

To start system restore from the task manager click new task and enter C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

I would try to reset the bios to optimized defaults then try and boot into safe mode.

Hey, thanks for the replies guys. Um, apparently it fixed by itself. I didnt do anything, it just went back after several restarts? So I guess you can close this topic now. Thanks!
