Question about IBM ThinkPad Computers & Internet
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
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:-

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.
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.

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
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
