    Thanks - Any hints what key or key combination to use? I have tried the FN key combinations, all the other F keys to no avail.

    I'm having a similar problem installing an OEM version of XP Home, except on a desktop computer with a microsoft elite ergonomic keyboard. I have a version of XP already installed and was trying to install over it. For me escape to cancel works, the arrow keys for the EULA work, just F8 to accept doesn't work.

    I have the exact same problem and my keyboard has become pretty old so dont know if thats the main problem. F8 doesnt seem to be working. Any key combination available for F8.

Check for an F Lock key on your keyboard.

By pressing it, it should activate your F Keys and F8 should work as advertised.

Sounds like the keyboard mapping on your laptop is non-standard in some way, and so the installer is waiting for F8 coming from a different key. Try the other function keys and work your way around the keyboard until you find what F8 is mapped to.

It is also possible you have a bad keyboard, but this is pretty rare.

F8 stop responding


When you are reinstalling Windows XP SP2, you may need to check that your installation disk is not scratched or dirty, if so clean or replace. Also when your booting off the CD, just give it some time as it may be slower than others. I have done numerous new installs and will admit that there are some issues when doing new installs on outdated hardware and also goes for Linux installs as well. Give it time, if you think it locked up it may not have. Also don't rush the install (hitting F8 as soon as you see the license agreement) wait a few minutes then hit F8.
Hopefully this helps you. May also want to upgrade hardware such as RAM or if you want go a little further and upgrade the CPU as well if you have the time and money but make sure your PC/Motherboard supports the upgrades.

Cannot get rid off google end user licence page,whether i turn the comp on or off how do i fix this ive tried task manager and end process still wont go


Easiest way to get rid of the EULA is to agree to it. If the Agree Button is no visible, then press TAB until the highlight disappears from the screen then re-appears. Once it re-appears, press SHIFT+Tab (Moves tab backwards) once and press enter this should agree. The Google EULA is normally for the Google desktop, once at the desktop you can uninstall it if you like.

Windows wont boot up when I turn on my Toshiba


You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.
