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
Spoiler
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.
