    I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to check if you can boot into Safe Mode.

     

    1.    Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.

    2.    Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.

    3.    Switch to Boot tab and check Safe boot.

    4.    Click OK and restart the computer to check the result.

     

    Does it work?

  • I was running into the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. I had my keyboard plugged into an USB expansion slot and it wasn't reading when I hit F8 during boot up. I simply unplugged the keyboard from one of the expansion slots and plugged it into one of the USB slots that came with the machine. Once I did that, it started recognizing when I pressed F8 and got me into Safe Mode.

     

    Hope this helps!
