It’s good to see you out here again! Smile! You’re still having the same problem with your PC? I don’t think by using the safe mode will give you a fresh
install of Windows 10. I don’t think the safe mode has anything to do with that. Keith, you remember I told you I bought a new Windows Laptop? Well, needless to say it is very slow, I’m not happy with it, JAWS has developed a speech impediment, I could just
throw the Laptop as well as JAWS out the window. Keith, I debated for at least 2 years if I wanted to buy a Windows Laptop, or an iPad, well, unfortunately, I picked Windows, and I have regretted it ever since! So, I can sympathise with you right now. Every
time I get an update from Windows, my Laptop gets worse! Keith, do you use a headphone or earbuds with your PC?

Subject: [TechTalk] HP laptop : How to enter safe mode?
Hi, I was informed on this list that my installation of windows 10 is most likely damaged (I have previously posted the slowness using jaws and windows 10 and th lag and what
not on the system.)
I was told that if I enter safe mode, I can choose to either reinstall the windows 8 that came pre-installed on the laptop, or reinstall windows 10, since my cousin did the
upgrade to windows 10 when microsoft was offering the upgrade for free from windows 8 to windows 10.
My question is how do I enter safe mode on an HP laptop. I know that some name brand systems have different safe mode keys taht you have to push and hold while the system
is booting up.
(I hae a netbook that uses the F8 key during startup to enter safe mode.
Anyone have a clue as to what I hold down on my HP laptop to enter safe mode?
