    I used option 2.5 and now all I get is a black screen, with No mouse pointer at all. It appears that my doesn't even come on. I disconnected my second screen and still nothing. I tried a full power down(disconnect the power cord and push the power button). It seems that windows doesn't want to go into safe mode at all.

    it appears that I had a conflict between my video cards. I read about that in a early thread. There was a video card integrated in the mother board. I'm not real savvy with computers so I didn't noticed the second video card. Now Windows rebooted in save mode and all is better. Thanks for all the info that's been posted in this thread, it was really helpful.

    My Dell had hung up on an unusable blue screen when trying to get to safe mode. Three icons, network, narrator, and power were my only options. Could not get to msconfig.

    bcdedit /deletevalue {identifier} safeboot

    got it back to normal operations. Lifesaver! Had spent most of the morning surfing the web for solutions, with most assuming I had a good windows interface. Was only able to get to dos prompt after downloading iso onto usb drive.
