I have Macbook OS SL 10.6.8

 

I just want to clear the font database.  The instructions say to start in safe mode, and then restart.

 

Anyway, I try the basic instruction of holding the Shift Key down immediately when hearing the chimes, and then releasing.  But, no matter what I do, I can't get the Macbook to boot into Safe Mode.

 

Somewhere i seem to remember that when you have the hardware password set you can't boot into safe mode this way???  Or, is my memory false?

 

Anyway,  Macbook is otherwise booting normally.  I just don't know how I can get it to boot into Safe Mode!!

 

Anyone know what I can do?
