How can I get that option to show?

Its a Dell Optiplex GX270(just found out about the overfilled capacators,luckily it's not one of them),with XP Pro.

Its been like this since I got it.I'm not having problems with windows,I was just hoping to get this figured out before I actually need to use safe mode.

Usually, you press the F8 key immediately after the POST screen and before the Windows boot screen appears. That will give you several bot choices, including "Safe" mode.

:pt1cable:  Brain fart,excuse me.

If i actually needed safe mode i would have remembered that special F8 key.I just saw "F2 for BIOS,F12 for boot menu",just snooping around,didnt give the boot device menu a second though,i just glanced at it for a second and thought "no safe mode?,well that sucks".Its been a while since I've needed to use any of that.

So yeah,I get the idiot of the year award.
