To start up in safe mode:

Shut down your computer and wait 10 seconds.

Press the power button.

Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold down the Shift key.

You should press the Shift key as soon as possible after you hear the startup tone, but not before.

Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple logo and progress indicator (spinning gear).

Will not boot to safe mode imac g4


Starting up in Safe Mode Follow these steps to start up into Safe Mode.
  1. Be sure your Mac is shut down.
  2. Press the power button.
  3. Immediately after you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be pressed as soon as possible after startup, but not before the startup sound.
  4. Release the Shift key when you see the Apple logo appear on the screen.
After the Apple logo appears, it may take longer than usual to reach the login screen. This is because your computer is performing a directory check as part of Safe Mode.
To leave Safe Mode, restart your computer without pressing any keys during startup.

My pc starting problem


You can try starting win98 in safe mode, keep shift key pressed on startup to force safe mode. Then, If you can start in safe mode you may try to troubleshoot the problem uninstalling software recently installed, looking for devices that are not working properly in device menager, and eventually performing a virus scan and a system check using Norton utilities or a similar program. If the PC doesnt even start in safe mode I suggest re-installing the system from Win98 CD.

Hope this may help
