Hello wowdude142,


Start Windows 7/Vista/XP in Safe Mode with Networking


  1. Immediately after the computer is powered on or restarted (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key in 1 second intervals.
  2. After your computer displays hardware information and runs a memory test, the Advanced Boot Options menu will appear.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking and press ENTER.




Dont you get this screen?


After selecting safe mode option what happen?
