I'm having problems rebooting into safe mode, I'm running windows XP but have tried pressing f8 on start up, after the beep but before the windows logo comes up and nothing works, is there any other way to reboot in safe mode?

Why would my computer not use f8 to enter it?

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Tapping F8 as soon as you press the power button should work , though some can use F5
