Stuck key 42 error

The problem is a stuck key 42 error that prompts me to press F1 to resolve issue. After doing that I look for an option to disable all keyboard errors in which i could not find it in the Bios Setup utility. It continues to loop through unsuccessfully trying to boot the OS. Also tried restoring computer when it worked well without success.

SOURCE: Notebook will not boot

If I understand what your problem is...
I had the same problem, it was a caused by bad Windows XP install CD.
Call Gateway and explain the situation, you may need to have a magnifying glass handy to read the tiny engraved lettering in the center of the CD disk.
Have your 'Product Key' available.
If you have some kind of sales receipt, or other "Proof of Purchase" have it handy too.
You will need to tell them, you do not have the program installed on other computers.
They can send you another disk.
This method will only work if you have a legal copy of the program.

SOURCE: Unable to get into BIOS SETUP

hi there,

On most systems, the key or key combination to press to enter the BIOS program is displayed on the screen when the system boots up, at the time when the BIOS is ready to enter Setup.

take a look at some default keys:-

  • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
  • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
  • {Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
  • {Insert}
  • {F1}

SOURCE: Entering BIOS settings, Easy-Access, after POP, with external KB

The Power On Password problem is near impossible to crack. It is designed to prevent unauthorized access to the Thinkpad and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
There are no backdoor passwords available, the only option is to ask the person who set the password.
OR
There is a way to hack into the Thinkpad to see and remove the password but it requires electronic skills, a program and a working computer.

How to do i enter bios setup in toshiba 5205-s705


Hold down the F1 key, then, while continuing to hold it down, press the power switch. the system will turn on, then prompt you to check system and press F2 (thats from memory, it maybe F1 again) to enter BIOS.
With many Toshibas you can hold down any key to do this, as it simply generates a keyboard error, prompting the same message.
Hope this info helps.

ERROR 0210: Stuck key 7B Press F1 to setup . Please help me out of this problem.


There are issues with the ThinkVantage Button at boot as it doesn't do what its suppose to. Just use the F1(BIOS Setup), F11(pre-boot/recovery area) and F12(boot device selection).


Just a reminder to practice press and release when pressing a button. We sometimes get impatient and do a key hold down for a while rather than multiple press and release.


I hope this would resolves your ERROR 0210: Stuck key

I toasted my school laptop, using it to seach arourd while taking break from studying and i am sure i now have a lovley viirus. while trying to restart laptop, all i get is the black screen with cursor...


This is a system board POST/BIOS error code (nothing todo with Windows). The ERROR 210: is a standard POST (Power On Self Test) errormessage that indicates an error with the keyboard. The error condition is thata keyboard scan code was received from the keyboard when none was expected,after the keyboard was reset.

If this occurs most of the time when you power on yoursystem, then it indicates that a key is sticking down or the key mechanical orelectrical parts are broken. Sometimes blowing out and cleaning out around thekeys will resolve this problem. Otherwise, you need to replace your keyboardwith a new (or at least a working) one.

ERROR CODE "0210:KEY STUCK 39


I got the 0210 stuck key error on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61, pc would not bootup, made sure keyboard was connected and cleaned with aircan and then went into bios and via F1 on startup, then went to CONFIG then to Keyboard/Mouse then I disabled the TrackPoint. Boots up fine now but the red nipple mouse is disabled due to action mentioned above. Looks like a warranty fix for Lenovo since this is a newer laptop. If it was out of warranty i would just skip using it and leave it disabled. The trackpad works fine.

Press (F1) to resume, (F10) to setup


I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"
