Windows 7: Cannot access Safe Mode but can boot in Safe Mode with Networking

Cannot access Safe Mode but can boot in Safe Mode with Networking

After attempting to start my Laptop in Safe Mode, it loaded drivers normally only to crash a few seconds later. A prompt message appears but is impossible to read because Windows immediately reboots upon showing the prompt.

Safe Mode with Networking loads normally.

Any ideas or advice?

The computer is an Acer 4743G running Windows 7 Home Basic x64.
