Windows 98 Will Not Go Into Safe Mode

By Johnbotz ·
My PC works great in "Normal Mode". It has a P2-350 Intel Processor with 128 MB RAM, 2 Hardrives (40GB Maxtor and a 6.4GB WD), 1 CD ROM (Magic Spin 48X) and 1 CD-RW (ACER 6X4X32), Main Video (16MB Diamond Viper 550) and 2 Best Data Voodoo2 cards in dual SLI mode. The problem is the computer will not go into "Safe-Mode". I know how to get into "Safe Mode" it just won't work in safe mode. After hitting F8 and picking "Safe Mode" the information box comes up informing me I'm in "Safe Mode" and I click OK. It continues to boot and all looks fine except the computer is not responding (locked-up).

Reiterating it works fine in "Normal Mode" but not "Safe Mode". Any Clues??????
