The laptop may have special keys, but the trick is to tap the F8 key after the initial boot screen and before Window starts.

Try this:

You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

hno2005,
normally F8 should work. Keep it pressed for a while.
If nothing else works, while in windows, hold down your power button till your computer shuts down. Then power on the computer, it'll show a black screen saying your computer did not shut down properly and give you several boot options. Choose safe mode there.
