    Help getting to safe mode on Asus P5N32-E Sli Motherboard

    Hi there. I am having trouble getting to safe mode with my motherboard.

    People say to press f8 and etc to get there but mine it doesn't ive tried finding the manual and it doesn't say which to push to get to safe mode.

    I am at my wits end can someone please advise :[ ?

    I was hoping to go safe mode so i can use driver cleaner to remove my graphic/audio drivers so i can do a fresh installation.

    Safe mode is a windows function that has to be activated at boot time.
    The moment you start the PC you have to push the F8 key on the keyboard (the
    moment it is booting up!!).
    If you are to late it will do a normal boot from windows.

    I did that but it didn't work. I even tried holding down F8 a long time, i also tried tapping F8 continuously...

    I search over the net and it said different motherboard have different key to get to safe mode. I tried them but it still didn't work for me :[

    No that's not correct, do you have a wireless keyboard? or a ps/2 connected
    one?

    If it is a wireless try to connect a ps/2 one and use that for a start.

    I do believe what you have seen is "different Mainbioards do use different
    key's to get to the BIOS"
    Not for safe mode in windows.

    Do you have a Microsoft Keyboard? If you do, you may have to press the F
    Lock key to get F8 to work.
