Thumbs down Evasive Safe Mode

Hello Friends: My P4 will not start in safe mode anymore. :confused: .
When booting up I press the F8 key and the Puter boots
normally. Everything else seems to work fine.
I have never had this problem before.
Does anyone have an Idea why this is happening?

hmm... that's odd. the only problem that could have happened is the same thing i just had happen with a computer i built for a friend of the family, which is the fact that the keyboard didn't work until AFTER it already booted into windows. do you have another keyboard you might be able to try? just a bit of a suggestion since i actually had it happen.

Make sure that the keyboard setting in the BIOS matches the type of keyboard you have (PS/2 or USB)

Hello Friends: I would like to thank dreamliner77 and ElementalDragon for their help
with my problem. A trip to the bios revealed that my keyboard setting
was in fact disabled. Safe Mode works fine now. Must be those Bios Ghosts again. Ciao
