    i have done exactly what you say. but when i get to the f8 nothing happens. i have a cordless keyboard and mouse and the light goes off on the little sensor thing could this be why my keyboard doesnt respond mart833

    That is a possibility. Can you try another keyboard preferably an ordinary one?

    Regards Howard :grinthumb

    Ps Moderators perhaps you would like to move this to the appropriate Windows OS forum
