Safe mode

  donmar 16:26 01 Mar 05

I am unable to get safe mode because when I select it all I get is a screen full of windows messages and then the computer freezes and I have to power down.
Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Are you sure you have left it long enough ? safe mode can take a while to load.

Try pressing F8 as your computer boots up, you probably did this to get into safe mode originally, but now if you press it, you'll get the option to "Start Windows Normally". Select that, and it should boot normally.

I don't know why it's going straight into safe mode in the first place tho.
