In that case try DEL (Delete) or F10. along with F2 these are the most common.

What is the f2,f8, r f12 want work? only the Ctrl+ Alt+ del that wroks


F2 usually takes you to the BIOS setup screen, you need to hit the keys as soon as you power up.

F12 selects on a Dell instant boot menu to select booting from CD-ROM, USB, etc rather than the BIOS options.

F8 goes to safe mode start up for windows, this must be done before the windows logo comes up (ie when it is a black screen).

Control - Alt -Delete Keys together can be used any time, after windows boots as it tells it to re-boot the computer, back to start up.

System setup screen


when you first start your computer and the screen is black a prompt will in the upper screen will tell you to hit f1 or f2 to enter setup. If you miss it or dont see it let windows finish loading then restart your computer and hit f1 and f2 several times right away and it should enter the setup or cmos page.

Asus K52N Series Multi recorder not recognised


Start hitting F2 even before the screen comes up and keep hitting it about every one second until the Bios screen comes up... Also, it could be that your Multi-Drive is dead and needs to be replaced...

On startup screeen is prompting me to hit f2 for setup not responding to command please help with issue. thanks


restart the pc and keep hitting the F2 immediately until you see the setup screen. my guess is you're hitting it too late. if you are just trying to start the pc normally, ignore the prompt, most pc will say that and the pc will boot up windows normally. it's not telling you to hit F2, it's mentioning it simply because it's an option. clarkcanhelp_0.jpg

My laptop does not want to boot, it ask a bootable disk, I created one with ISO image, when I insert that cd, it asked me to press any key, and if a press any key it will brought me to many option...


For that you need to set first bootable device as cd/dvd rom in bios. When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 key to enter in bios then go to boot menu and set first boot device priority as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit from bios then it boot with bootable disk. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Pavilion EZ4125 will not boot past the HP boot seletion screen.


Did it give you any blue screen error. Did you try booting from the CD. Its definitely something to do with the OS. Load the CD and run the setup and try to repair the OS.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.
