    How do i get into safe mode using windows 8.1?


    Hi,

    Lately my laptop has had several BSOD'S and i want to do a system restore but I can't because before i can click apply to restore the system, the laptop rebootes. I have tried everything , i tried pressing shift+f8. I'll get the options to enable safe mode but then it rebootes again. How do i get into safe mode to fix my bsods?
