My O/S is XP Prof'.I'm trying to access SAFE MODE but each time I do a restart pressing and holding F8 a window pops up headed "Select Boot Priority".Any suggestions on how to access Safe Mode plse?
Start >run >Type 'msconfig' then use the boot ini tab and tick safe mode.
Just keep tapping F8 and don't hold it down.
Or try F5.
I had the same prob and neither F8 or F5 would do it only way was as I posted
You're pressing it too soon, some PC's use F8 to select Boot Device immediately after switching on, hold off for a few seconds, but press it before you see the XP logo.
Brundle I tried umpteen permutations of speedWhy mess around with that when a couple of clicks with Msconfig works and you can do it any time not just on startup
Very many thks chaps for your advice.
I used the "msconfig" route and all went well as you suggested,however,to my surprise,F5 worked as well.Thks guys.Regards.
