I have a Toshiba Satellite I've tried holding f2 then pressing the power button pressing escape key and everything else and it doesn't work. Holding down f2 and pressing the power button worked before but now it doesn't work.

You don't say whether your windows 8 was preinstalled or was an upgrade so...

Take a look here and choose the path depending on your install.

Fast Boot may be enabled in BIOS. Try holding down F2 key first while turning the computer power on.


Good luck!

I had this same problem on a Toshiba Satellite with Windows 8. Instead of holding down the F2 key, tap it quickly at boot and see if that works.
