Hello I am running XP. My cursor freezes on the blue login page. I can get to start up options but I can't scroll to safe mode using the arrow keys. I do not have a start up disc and I live in a third world nation where I doubt the probability of finding one. I am hoping someone can offer a solution. I have read up on previous threads and have not been able to find a solution. Thanks very much for any suggestions.

What do you mean you can't scroll to the 'Safe Mode' option? I'm assuming you were able to get to that menu then? (by pushing F8 right before the Windows logo appears)

Thanks for the reply livebriand, the arrow keys wouldn't function. I resolved the issue with a USB driven mouse that I found and was able to go into safe mode.
