    Angry safe mode in toshiba satellite

    we have a toshiba satellite portable.
    When starting it doesn't seem to go through all the boot up stuff other comps do. It says Toshiba run and then starts windows.

    Pressing f8 furiously during boot up doesnt get it to go into safe mode.

    How can we achieve safe mode on this model please?

    regards,

    Ojos

    Some "tricks"

    Shut down everything in Windows, and turn off the satellite by disconnecting from AC power, and pulling the battery.

    For Windows 98:
    Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
    General Tab
    Advanced Button
    check Enable Startup Menu.

    For XP:
    Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
    BOOT.INI tab
    Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option
