I hope this is the right forum, or that I might be directed to the one most appropriate for this problem.
I have a Win 2000 OS with a wireless keyboard and mouse (Logitech). Everything works great except when I depress the F8 key for a 'Safe Mode' Boot, nothing happens (i.e., the normal boot continues as if I didn't depress any key.
There is a key function on this keyboard that switches the F functions for the 'upper case' operation. I have that key in the proper position (actually I have tried to boot in the safe mode using the 'upper' and 'lower' case function of the F8 key and get the same result...nothing.
When I exercise the 'upper case' function for the F8 key, it works as designated.
It there a test I could run that would tell me which key actually sends the proper coded signal when I depress it? How can I test the functionality of this F8 key?
