How to force Windows 8.1 to boot into Safe Mode
Press the power button to start the computer. When Windows begins to boot press and hold the power button until the computer turns off. Continue to do this until you see a page like the one below.
You will receive a message stating Unable to reapair your computer. You will see page like the one below.
Click/tap on Advanced options, then Start-up settings, then Restart. You will see a page like the one below.
Press the F4 key.
Let us know if the computer is responsive in Safe Mode.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

I hate to butt in, but when I reboot I get the options to boot to 8.1 or the Macrium Reflect boot time recovery environment OR at the bottom of the page, OTHER OPTIONS, from which I can choose Safe Mode, etc. .
Are the OTHER OPTIONS not available to everyone ?
I use Winaero Tweaker.
There are options for this---
Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts.
Learn to use Google Search.
Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

It's unlikely that OP has these options unless he uses Macrium or Winaero (if he used Macrium he wouldn't be asking for help would he )
In this particular case, I think the poster would be well advised to follow dc3's instructions.
