When you aatempt to hit F3 to start in safe mode what happens? Does it not bring you to a boot menu? Does it bring you to a boot menu and then doesn't start up? Is it possible that F3 is not the key to strike? If it is a Dell it may be F2 you need to strike.

I misread your first post

by jimmy-jam In reply to Open safe mode in ME

If it is a Dell most likely you will need to hit F12 at the post screen to get the boot menu. For some reason I thought you were trying to get the bios. The PC should tell you what key to strike in order to get the boot menu. Sometimes you have to look quick though. Good Luck.
