Question about Dell Dimension E521 PC Desktop
How did you try to get to safe mode. Have to tap F8 continuously for a while as soon as pc starts to boot. Holding key down might not work so it's better if you can keep tapping key quickly. If you have tried several times and can't get it to start in safe mode windows will normally put up an error screen to say windows didn't start properly with a few options. If you see this screen select last known good configuration and it might start to load windows normally if you are lucky.
