Windows 7: Windows 7 computer shuts down when trying to access safe mode

Windows 7 computer shuts down when trying to access safe mode

I'm having a strange issue. When I boot into safe mode, both through normal means (f8) and through forced shutdowns (holding power button), I'm unable to get it. I get to the login page, but the computer then just shuts down. Sometimes I'm able to enter password, sometimes no. The screen just goes black and then I see it booting up again.

I've tried windows startup repair, I've tried sfc /scannow and I've tried chkdsk, all say there are no issues with the drives. Any ideas?
