    Why did you want to boot to safe mode in the first place?
    You tried to access the bios in safe mode?

    Try to get somehow into the troubleshooting options, from there you need to open a command prompt and type "start msconfig" without the quotes.
    Via this way you should be able to reset safe mode.
