So my computer will simply not start up. When I turn the computer on, first I get about five seconds of the MSI homescreen (just MSI on black), then add the loading wheel for half a second, freezes, then black, then MSI with "preparing automatic repair" for a second, then add on the loading wheel for a second, then freeze, then black, then MSI homescreen for a sec and add the loading wheel... And so on. You get it.
I just uninstalled the companion to afterburner, rivatuner, because when I tried to end the program the UI kept popping back up, and the only way to delete it that I found was to go to the program file, delete everything I could, and then run the uninstall, after which it stated I needed to restart my computer. I did, and here we are.
I run an MSI GE70 2PE PRO-012, windows 10, and I know how to get to the bios. I cannot, however, figure out how to get to the Windows safe mode option.
I know I made a mistake with the rivatuner delete, but please... Send help!

You need to be able to boot into Windows to set the computer up to boot into Safe Mode or enable the F8 key to start Safe Mode when the computer is started.  If you can't boot into Windows you are not going to be able to do this. 


Can you boot into the BIOS?  If you can you should create  Windows 10 installation media and do a Refresh using the installation media.


To do a Refresh on a computer which can not boot you will need Windosw 10 Installation Media.

If you don't have installation media you can use the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to create installation media for either a disc or flash drive.  Follow the instruction for the second option Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC.

In order to use either form of installation media you need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the type of media (disc or USB flash drive) is the first device in the boot order, and the ssd/hdd the second device.

If you are using a disc place it in the tray of your optical drive, close the door and restart the computer.  When the computer recognizes the disc it will instruct you to press any button to boot from the disc.

If you are using a USB flash drive place it in a USB port and restart the computer.  You will receive the message to press any key to boot from the device.

There is a very good tutorial available, you will find it here.

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