    Am helping a friend set her PC back up after it has been stored (everything unplugged) for about 9 months.
    When we first went to turn it on the fans kicked in and it would appear to start booting up but then turn itself off again after about 10 or so seconds of activity.
    It did this 3 times and on the 4th attempt it finally loaded.
    However, it loaded as far as the login screen and when we mouse click or press a button the time etc clears from the screen but the login prompt is not there at all.

    Have searched through forums and seen mention of similar problems solved by booting in safe mode.

    I cannot get this PC to boot in safe mode.

    Shift+Restart - the pc says it is restarting but just shuts down.

    Power on and interrupt loading 3 times to try and get Automatic Repair Mode to trigger has done nothing. It will just load to the login screen again once I let it load fully.

    I even tried holding F2 while turning it on to try and get to BIOS, but this did nothing.

    I'm stumped at this point, how can I get this PC to boot in safe mode?

    :)
