    If I press F8 at start up I get a page that should allow me to get into safe mode, it tells me to use the up & down arrows to make my selection but my keyboard will not work could this be because I have a USB keyboard?. :confused: :confused:

    I have found the answer, I had to go into the Bios and enable USB support for legacy devices.

    easiest method into safe mode is using msconfig

    windos key +run, paste
    msconfig

    go to boot.ini

    safe boot

    done, but undo when you're done in safe mode
