How to access safe mode in windows 8?

I disabled my intel graphics card that came with my mother board in hopes that my desktop would recognize my other graphics card but im only getting a dark screen. I'm trying to access safe mode by tapping f8, f2, f5, del and esc but i'm not getting anything. Could someone please help this is my 2nd day with this computer.

    can you explain more on this. like when does this happen.

    heres a solution if you are able to reach desktop.
    open up charms => then select settings => click on power => the rest is important
    HOLD DOWN SHIFT KEY UNTIL YOUR SYSTEM DISPLAYS RESTARTING
    with shift held down select restart


    another method
    open up change pc settings from the settings option in charms and then select advanced start up. follow on screen options.

    to bring back the f8 method
    open cmd (as admin)
    type this
    bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
    Note that there are curly brackets around the parameter “default”, not the usual parentheses.
