Cannot get into or out of Safe Mode.

I have tried F8,F5,del etc & non of them work.

I am on Athlone 3500 64 bit.

I tried using sysconfig which put me into the startup mode & I reset to boot.ini which put it in safe mode but I was stuck in safe mode until I shut down & then when I restarted I was still in safe mode.

I had to do a system restore using Ghost.

Why was it doing this.

In passing befor I did a Ghost system restore it told me my hardware had changed & that I must reactivate in 3 days from Microsoft which was a problem as I now could not get on the Internet,I could have telephoned microsoft but I just shutdown restored and Activate message went away.

You have to keep tapping the F8 key on bootup, simply holding it down will not work.
