Pavilion p6285l - how to start Safe Mode (F8) ?

Pavilion p6285l desktop - how to boot in "safe mode" (F8 on most pc's) ?

Pushing F8 on startup many times, but no response. No "manual" in the box either.

F1 to F12 -- what they do on a HP desktop???

 

Want to run some virus tests in safe mode, since this 1 week old dekstop is already very slow.

IE8 and Windows 7, 32 bit  ("dont respond" and hang 30-60+ seconds). Speedtests around the globe show ok, so might be virus.

I contacted Microsoft the first time I was locked out of my laptop. My password was reset. But soon as I turned on my laptop the next time I was locked out again. Now the information they want is much more extensive and I do not have it and I can't access my laptop to find it. So now I am trying by using safe mode f8 does not work.
