Unable to go into Safe Mode ASUS m5a78l-m/usb3

Hello

My PC has started getting stuck on the Starting Windows screen and I've been trying to log on to safe mode to diagnose the issue

My mobo is ASUS m5a78l-m/usb3

Windows 7 x64 Pro

I've tried F8, F2, F12 but nothing works.

Can someone please help me with getting into the safe mode

Thanks

Perhaps F5 will do the trick.

I'd try repeatedly hitting whatever key you choose as soon as you boot it.

Press <Delete> frequently, at Startup. If you see the Windows logo, then you missed the BIOS.

Pressing DEL takes me to the BIOS

Ow, i thought that is what you wanted ... you mean Safe Boot, not Quick Boot ! ... okay then, there are two ways to Safe Boot:

1) Launch msconfig, and on the boot tab there is a checkbox for safe boot. This is not of much use if you cannot enter Windows.

2) The alternative approach is to hit F8 key repeatedly, just before Windows loads. That takes you to the Advanced Menu, where you may select Safe Mode from list of options.

You say that you have already pressed F8 at startup. You need to press F8 just at the right moment. And that moment, is when after the BIOS screen, but before the Windows logo screen. Just press F8 lots of times, to be sure that it catches!
