Safe Mode: holding Ctrl or F8 No Longer Gets to Fafe Mode

Safe Mode: holding Ctrl or F8 No Longer Gets to Fafe Mode

Post by Eliur » Mon, 10 Nov 2003 08:56:37


Hello:

I don't seem able to get into Safe Mode by holding Ctrl or F8 during
Restart.

I was able to do so earlier this morning to do a defrag.

Now I cant get there again using either of these methods.

Why is this happening?

How can I get that function back?
thanks

May be worth running System Restore and rolling-back to last time/date it
worked OK.
An old trick, but it might just work <g>

Hello:

You cannot just hold the F8 key while restarting to get
into "Safe Mode". You must tap the key repeatedly until
your are given the options screen at which time you choose
option 3 "Safe Mode" then hit the return key "enter" and
you will be taken to "Safe Mode".
