F8 doesn't respond when I press it, as instructed, as the first step in recovering or resetting my PW on my Lenovo laptop.

Hi Shirley,

I know that you were trying to enter safe mode to recovery your password for your Lenovo laptop.

Use Shift+Restart
Press Windows logo key + X on the keyboard.
Hold the Shift key while clicking Restart from Shut down or sign out menu.
Select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
After the PC restarts, a list of options will be shown. Select 4 or F4 or Fn+F4 (following the on-screen instructions) to start the PC in Safe Mode. If using the Internet, select 5 or F5 or Fn+F5 for Safe Mode with Networking.

Or you can just check out more methods below.

Please keep me updated on the progress.
