Start your computer without starting Windows

In Category: Windows ME

# Click Start, and then click Shut down.
# Click Restart, click OK, and then press and hold the CTRL key until the Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition Startup Menu appears.

For some computers, you can use F8 instead of CTRL to bring up the Microsoft Windows ME Startup Menu. Do one of the following:
# If you want to load Windows as usual, press the number key that corresponds to Normal, and then press ENTER.
# If you want to create a file listing your computer's boot and load activity, press the number key that corresponds to Logged, and then press ENTER. Windows loads as usual and writes the activity to the C:\Bootlog.txt file.
# If you want to load Windows using minimum drivers and basic options, press the number key that corresponds to Safe mode, and then press ENTER. Use this option if you have difficulties with hardware and other issues in Windows. In Safe mode, you can diagnose and fix errors.
# If you want to step through each activity in the Windows load sequence, allowing or disallowing an activity as you choose, press the number key that corresponds to Step-by-step confirmation, and then press ENTER.
