New Safe Mode boot command
Remember how you used to press
F8 after the Starting Windows prompt
in Windows 95? Well, that method still works, but because Windows 98
no longer has a Starting Windows prompt, it may be a bit harder to
know when to press it.
Windows 98 has made it easier. All you
need to do is hold down the CTRL key at the first sign of any text on the screen during boot
until the Microsoft Windows 98 Startup Menu appears.
Safe Mode is used when there may be a
problem with your monitor or device drivers required to start
Windows. It uses default settings and a minimum amount of device
drivers to run Windows. Please note that in Safe Mode, you will not
have access to CD-ROM drives, printers, or other devices.
