1.Start your computer
2.When the diagnostics screen appears (a black screen with white letters and numbers), press DELETE. This will help you get on the BIOS menu.
3.In the upper side of the screen you should see somewhere "Advanced Boot Settings"
(You should be able to go there by navigating with the Up,Down,Right,Left arrows on your keyboard, cause mouse won't be functional)
Hope i was able to help!

Click on the link above to see what i mean. Do you see the "Advanced" section of the BIOS?
Some computer BIOS are different but there should be some similarity inthis photo and your PC.
Now, something else, if you want to change your boot settings so that you can boot from CD-ROM or other external Drive,
you should check on the "Boot" section that you can see in the picture.

you're basically doing the following correct?
While starting your computer tap the F8 key once every second during the memory count up, or during the system splash screen where you see the system maker's name (HP, COMPAQ, DELL....etc.)
This will result in a text based menu. Use the cursors/arrow keys to navigate to SAFE MODE and hit enter.
Does the problem recur in safe mode?.
have you ever been able to get into safe mode with the f8 key on this computer? is this a USB or PS/2 keyboard?
