What is the easiest way to boot up in safe mode? It seems like I have a lot of trouble doing so.
Just Googled the specification and out the box, it runs Windows XP. Providing you haven't installed another non Microsoft OS, follow these instructions:
To get to safe mode in XP, just press F8 the moment that the picture/text of the BIOS has finished, but before the Windows flag logo comes up.
You should then be able to select safe mode as a option.
If you keep missing it, keep pressing F8 every second from the moment you turn on the machine. You may hear warning beeping, however it should still work.
