Other ways to boot in safe mode HP dv6 W7.

hi. I have a HP Pavilion laptop DV6.
RAM: 3GB
CPU: 2.1 GHz
Graphic Card: 512MB
WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE.
I installed a program boujou 4.1.
but when installed, after 2 minutes came a blue screen with some letters and stopped
From that moment did not start windows.
When the switch on, it seems only the hp logo and menu info F1, F2, F9, F11.
and after these seem only this: "_"that turns off the light and there is no other info I tried to start in safe mode but does not start with any of the buttons F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12
Can someone tell me other way to start in safe mode?
I did not lose because I made backup documents


Thanks to all.

F8
Press and hold it, or tap it constantly during boot up.
One of those methods should work.

If it were me xhimi, I would do a System Restore rather than trying to start in Safe Mode. Your new Boujou app may not be compatible with Windows 7 or you may have gotten a corrupted installation. Either way, I would undo it through System Restore before I took a chance on further damaging my system.

By the way, there's help available at the Boujou site as well as a forum for problem solving. Why don't you see if your problem has been addressed?

Hi,

If you manage to get the machine booted at all you can use msconfig to select safe boot on the next restart.

Also, as soon as the main HP splash screen has disappeared you need to continually tap F8 until the boot options menu appears.

Hi.
I can't start to do this you show me..
I tried and the system restore, but not completed.
I have dvd of installation of Windows 7.
With this I can do anything?
Perhaps the commandprompt, any possibility?
On the dvd I tried startup repair = nothing, system restore = nothing,
At least I have the opportunity to backup.

One of these keys (may be F9) should get you into a recovery options screen (pay close attention during logo screen) and browse through the menus carefully as there should be a "system restore" option as Imperfect1 pointed out above or Recovery options.

You only want to use the recovery options as a last resort as those options will either return your computer to factory condition and you will lose any saved media/documents + reinstall all of your programs or option similar to a repair install where you will only have to reinstall all/some of your programs.

Note: option may be labeled "Recover/restore your computer to an earlier time" or something similar.

Just as a point of clarification, System Restore doesn't affect or change any of the user's personal files/folders.

EDIT: or programs (depends on restore point chosen)

You are correct Imperfect1 , but I must stress to the OP the pitfalls of picking the Recovery option should the need arise.
