You should be able to to get to the SAFE menu by pressing the F8 key as soon as the computer powers-on - keep pressing it.
Getting into the BIOS varies by manufacturer, at power-on, immediately: possibilities:
-- Press the DEL key, or
-- Press the F1 key, or
-- Press the F2 key.
Once you get to the BIOS, there should be a selection for "display the Splash Screen," or something worded similarly. You can choose whichever you like.
