The approved method for accessing the advanced options menu of Windows is to tap the F8 key rapidly and continuously starting immediately after the initial POST screen fades. That works much better than merely pressing and holding it.

Check if your keyboard is connected to USB port which is part of the motherboard and not some frontal or 'additional' USB ports you might have

First you need to make sure that there are no other removable devices plug on the system, like usb, external hard drives, then if that will work try to go to the bios, press f2 when you see the dell logo, and go to the system setup, go to the boot device configuration and make sure that removable device is not the first boot device, if it is the first one choose hard disk and then second boot device ad cd rom/dvd rom and then disable the 3rd boot and the fourth boot device. Make sure to save the changes. And restart the system again. Once the computer is back and running try to go to support.dell.com and check the bios, download if there is a bios update for the system.

SOURCE: computer not booting in safe mode

I'm pretty sure IBM Lenovo online support has a troubleshooting page to help you with your restart problem, but if you've looked there already, try to work through this article. Also see here for info on how to disable the restart and use a stop error code to diagnose the cause. Frequently this indicates a hardware or device conflict of some kind, but can also be a symptom of malware. In the latter case, I recommend you follow these malware removal protocols.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I don't see my question but this could be a repeat. My screen states hit F2 or F12 to start but neither of my F keys will work. Please help. Thank you.


F2 or F12 or Delete gets you into the BIOS. Why do you want to go there? To boot normally just power down and back up. Leave the Function keys alone unless you have a reason to go to the BIOS. You can create a lot of havoc in there!

The only function key you might need is F8 which you keep tapping as the computer boots. That gets you into Boot Normally, Boot with Last Known good configuration or Boot to Safe Mode.

What is the f2,f8, r f12 want work? only the Ctrl+ Alt+ del that wroks


F2 usually takes you to the BIOS setup screen, you need to hit the keys as soon as you power up.

F12 selects on a Dell instant boot menu to select booting from CD-ROM, USB, etc rather than the BIOS options.

F8 goes to safe mode start up for windows, this must be done before the windows logo comes up (ie when it is a black screen).

Control - Alt -Delete Keys together can be used any time, after windows boots as it tells it to re-boot the computer, back to start up.

Can not force notebood to boot into safe mode. I have tried F8 and just continues normal boot. F2 and F12 will take me into setup. What alternative do I have to get into safe mode?


Pressing the F5 key will also take you into a startup menu where you'll be able to select Safe mode. If all else fails try booting the computer with an ERD Commader disc and manage it from there. You can download them for free.

Startup with F12


Welcome to FixYa! Delete is the BIOS setup key at POST. F12 is a one-time boot option. Safe mode is accessed by repeatedly pressing the F8 key at the first Windows splash screen. Post again if you have further questions. Steve
