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?.

Could be. Hit F5 instead.

Have a look in the BIOS for a setting something like Enable USB Support For Legacy Devices and make it's Enabled.

Chris F5 was just the same but pc moron hit the nail on the head, enabling USB support for legacy devices did the trick.
Thanks to both of you for your quick responses.
