    There are a number of options that you can use with safe mode, depending upon what you need. Here is a good tutorial detailing these options:

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10

    However, I'm not clear on what is leading you to go into safe mode. We were discussing keyboard backlighting previously. Was there another that you are trying to troubleshoot now by going into safe mode?

    Because it was mentioned that bios had a way to adjust the backlit problem. So I tried to get into safe mode.
    That tutorial doesn't work! None of those ways work.
    I always get the same result that I've already discribed.

    On phone e now so short response. More to follow. Note that safe mode has nothing to do with bios. Getting into bios settings is a whole different thing. More detail when I. Front of computer

    Sorry about the short response earlier.

    So first, I have an HP laptop and on mine the key that you need to press during startup is F10 to get into the BIOS. That is where you would find any settings related to adjusting the backlight, if they are available (unless HP has a utility that can adjust that within Windows, but it sounds like you have ruled that out). I don't know for sure that the correct hotkey for every HP is F10 but it's probably a safe bet.

    IMPORTANT: On my HP laptop the F10 also serves as a media play/pause key. One of settings (either the F10 or the play/pause) is accessed by simply pressing that key. The other function is accessed by pressing Fn + F10 at the same time. So the point here is simply that if you are trying to press a function key to either get into BIOS or safe mode, be aware that you may have to press Fn + that function key to get it to work.

    Because there seems to be a little bit confusion regarding BIOS setup vs safe mode, I just want to clarify this. The article I linked to before describes safe mode in more detail, but basically it's simply a mode of Windows in which Windows trys to load only absolutely drivers. This means that you may lose some functionality while in safe mode, but the idea is that if some driver or service is causing a problem, you can boot without it and do some troubleshooting such as uninstalling drivers or services while in safe mode.

    Hope this helps. If I'm misunderstanding the current issue, feel free to let me know.

    The situation is resolved. I updated the Bios version and still have no control over the stupid backlight... so I give up.
    msconfig solved the machine booting up into safe mode.

    I Really appreciate all you're good work and help sir!

    I'm marking this as resolved.
