safe mode for windows2000

By chulo19 ·
How do I start windows 2000 in safe mode? I'm installing a cd writer and the computer shows that the cd rom exists in device manager, but is high lighted with a problem. I went to properies and was told the drivers for this device are not loaded. Windows will not load the drivers on remove the device and restart. Help!

Restart your computer, and when the Boot menu appears, press F8.

When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select an option, and then press ENTER.

When the Boot menu appears again, with the words "Safe Mode" displayed in red at the bottom, select whichever method you need (Safe Mode Minimal most likely).

You can try and find updated drivers on the CD Writer manufacturer's website. Just a suggestion.
