Using Safe Mode to Deal with Driver Issues

You can start the operating system in “Safe Mode” which will disable unnecessary drivers. Then, using Device Manager, you can remove the offending driver and make whatever changes are necessary to your system. Safe mode uses a very safe, generic video driver. To start in “Safe Mode,” press F8 during the boot up of Windows.
