I have Samsung laptop win 7 and I wanted to get in to safe mode when the computer starts but I couldn't. I tried pressing, holding and shiftf8 but I couldn't.

Try this:


Turn it all the way off (properly).


Remove the power cord (and battery if possible).


Replace the power cord (and battery).


(If it doesn't have a power cord attached and the battery is not removable, leave the computer off for at least 15 seconds before continuing).


Touch the power button, and start tapping the [F8] function key about once per second or so.


With any luck, after a few seconds or so you should see the white-on-black Windows menu allowing you to select "Safe mode".
