Hi Jim. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
When you try to start the laptop normally, what happens?
What is the error message that appears onscreen?
#6 seems to be a hurdle as the first thing you should see when powering on is the Lenovo splash screen.
That screen may be able to be turned off. When you start it up do you see the BIOS POST information
come up on the screen? (things such as BIOS revision, amount of RAM and hard drives)
Do you have a VGA monitor you could hook up to it?
The only way I know to get into Safe Mode
from a cold start is to start it up and begin tapping F8.
Ok. Come back if any issues.
