Please explain to me how I reboot my computer in "safe mode" and what safe mode means?

Safe mode stops all unnecessary programs from loading at startup, as well as many of the graphics that regular mode has. To get into Safe Mode, reboot the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key, until you get to make a choice of Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode, or Last Known good config. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode (if not hilighted already) and press enter. The drivers will load, and you will be able to login.
