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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
