Default boot into safe mode? - 12-04-2008, 06:33 PM

how do i boot into safe mode? i couldn't seem to get the function button combos to bring it up, and boot options didn't clearly show me any safe mode options. maybe i was missed something, was really late at night.

thanks in advance

or if all else fails and you can still boot into normal mode you can run msconfig and select the /safeboot option
