I cant find any different key to press or anything like that. As far as I can tell, f8 is pretty standard and its just a matter of timing when you press it lol..NOTE : If there is a bootable disc in the CD drive then if the CD drive happens to be the first boot device, pressing any key will cause you to boot from that when you reach that point instead, so ensure that there is no disc in the drive before trying the next step.Turn on the computer and just press f8 at least once per second from the moment you turn on the computer until windows has loaded or your boot options have come up. At least by doing this, you'll be sure of finding the right moment to press it! If that doesnt work, I was going to suggest you modify the boot.ini file to add a safe mode to the boot loader menu. My assumption though is that you are using Vista, which doesnt have a boot.ini file, and I have no experience with the new Vista bootloader. I know you can no longer edit the bootloader with notepad, and that makes it a lot harder...I will research how to achieve this, and put it into as simple terms as I can once I do. I suspect this may take me a little time.In the meantime, perhaps some of our other contributors who are more up to speed with Vista ( dak looks at Mitz and winks .. ) may be able to assist further.I'll get back to you with my own solution ASAP.
