    Hi everybody. I'm having problems getting my computer in to safe mode. This is my board: mcp6pb m2+.
    I tried to press F8 in bios but after that the computer just hangs. My OS is windows 7.

    Please help. Thanks.

    F8 sometimes has other functions on some machines. You may need to try different timing to get to Safe Mode. Try it just before Windows would ordinarily start to load.

    I think i already did that. At start it says to hit F8 when you need to go to the advance options or something like that. I'm sure that's where I can go to safe mode. I don't know why I can't enter into safe mode.

    Please help. Thanks!

    type "WINKEY+R" to bring up the Run... box. type in "msconfig" (no quotes). Clock the Boot tap. Check the Safe Mode box. Select which radio button you prefer (most likely Networking)
