Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

F10 at startup

\015 Whilst pressing F10 at start up I only get the startup option window and not the recovery window that everyone talks about. Should I try another key?\015

Answers :

Yes for windows recovery and startup options press "F8" repeatedly during boot to provide you with other options.

\015\012On most laptops F10 is usually to either change the actual boot option (cd, floppy, hard drive, etc.) or to enter a system wide recovery process that would restore the laptop to its original condition and also wipe any information you may have on it.
