I hear alot of people answering people with problems to go into safe mode? What is this and how do you get to it? I run Windows XP and might find this information useful someday! Thank you

tap F8 at start up after the post screen.

this loads the bare minimum of drivers drivers needed to run the operating system and is used to diagnose if software is causing problems etc.

As huggyg71 says but, I've found that Safe Mode in XP is far from easy to use. In fact, for the inexperienced, it can be quite scary.

You will be much safer, and confident, in the event of a disaster to have a full system backup.
