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".
