    F10 is the usual button for that, I believe, though it should enumerate the buttons and their corresponding functions at the bottom of the BIOS-settings screen.

    But, for a temporary solution, as xbrxlunch here says, you could try intercepting the default OS by hitting F8 (that assumes you're running Windows.)

    Then again, if you're trying all the keys and not getting anywhere, try plugging in a standalone keyboard, and see if it'll respond to that.

    Here's hoping you get it resolved quickly.

    That is a puzzler. I'm afraid I can't help you any further without having physical access to the laptop or any more info on the problem. (Maybe I'm not thinking very clearly this morning. I'll keep thinking about it for a while, and see if I come up with something.) But I suggest you try to find someone with more experience in this kind of thing. Look around on other forums for posts by other folks who have had this problem. Google is your best friend.

    end key problem? easily press and hold first the "Fn" key and then with the "end" key to save all changes you have made.


    hope this can help you 100%. bye.
