    Hi all I installed gta 5 on my pc today I went to launch it and it ended up crashing my computer so I restarted it and it would not boot past the loading screen. I have tried to go in to safe mode pressing f8 and other function keys but I can't find it. I have tried putting my windows installation disk.in to try and repair or reinstall it but all to no avail. I have tried everything I can. Any help much appreciated thanks.

    Try to get into safe mode like this:
    1. Turn the computer all the way off.

    2. Wait at least 15 seconds.

    3. Turn the computer back and start tapping the [F8] function key ... maybe a couple of times a second or so.

    4. If you get some kind of a "select your boot drive"-type menu, select your normal hard drive (of SSD) and then immediately continue tapping the [F8] key.

    5. You should now get the Windows "Advanced Boot Options" menu.

    6. Use the [Up] and [Down] arrow keys to select "Safe mode" and then press [Enter].
