Question about MSI 661FM2-LSR Motherboard
The F5 and F8 keys have been used in the past to bring up a short text menu that allows you to choose between a C:\ prompt, Safe Mode and possibly other choices depending on the version of Win.
Early in the boot, tap each of these keys; if one doesn't work, the other might.
Try one per boot, not both during the same boot sequence.
