At turn on it say ( Press the esc key for startup menu ) when I press the esc key ( ESC...pause startup comes up...


When you turn on your computer, you do NOT have to enter the startup menu. Do not press any keys when it asks you to press the Esc key. Once that screen goes away, it will take a minute for Windows to boot up and your good to go.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Fn (function) key not working in my new hp elitebook 8440p laptop. It is running windows XP SP3.


A good check of whether the Fn key is working is to display the system information as follows...
1. briefly press Fn key, and then briefly press the Esc key
or alternatively...
2. Press and hold down the Fn key, briefly press the Esc key, and then release both at the same time.
This should display the version of the system BIOS as the BIOS date or system ROM version number.
If this doesn't happen, then either one or both Fn and Esc keys are not working. In any case since your laptop is new, it should be covered by a 30-day exchange policy from the place of purchase and you should just take it back for an exchange. If you can't get it exchanged and the purchase was on your credit card, you should have purchase coverage from the credit card company as well.

On the bottom, it shows <esc=boot menu> <f1=setup> <f10=system recovery> but it doesn't respond to anything or move from this screen


Check that your keyboard is connected, and is working properly.
Try your keyboard on a different computer.
Try a different keyboard on your computer.

The 'ESC' key should always work.
The 'F1' key should always work.
If your disk-drive is *NOT* "dead", then the 'F10' key should work.

If neither 'ESC' nor 'F1' work, you have a serious problem with the motherboard.

I have an asus 1000he netbook and haveing boot problems what is the boot menu key?


ESC (Escape) on the keyboard should be the Boot Menu key, means you have to tap the ESC key once you press the power button to switch on the Machine and select the boot device from the options available.

If ESC key doesn't work, then try F2 or F8 or F12 (these are all the boot menu keys for Asus motherboards and Laptops).

Let me know if you need further help, but with more details about your problem.

Good Luck.
Thanks.

Press F1 key If none of these work, we may have a different problem all together, get back to me if so, and i will see if we can find a solution. Hope this helps! Si :)
