I think a lot of my problems I have been haveing useing 10 on here is actually a combination of things.

When I find myself haveing a problem I have to ask my self is this a windows thing a HP thing a ISP slow internet thing or operator error LOL.

 

Something I have noticed is many have problems with boot; boot order or bios.

 

On this computer I  have never actually seen a boot screen [black screen] for more than 3 seconds and no writeing on it at all.  I have owned and used Windows from win 4.1 on up, never have I had a computer that would not show a boot screen before. Ever!!!!!!

 

Now I have recently found a users manual for this thing that I can actually read.

The key sequence on here is esc+f8 at the same time and of course when I tried it nothing happened.

I held them both down for several seconds [nothing] let up and the normal windows screen came up.

 

Every time someone has tried to help and give me instructions I have followed them to the letter and I seldom get the screen I am supposed to or what they describe.

Hello,

I have a newer HP ENVY 17t Notebook from 2013 and have the same-thing is you here is how it works.

When the PC Boots it will go from black screen to HP Logo to Windows lasting for about 1 or 2 seconds.

There is no more stall at the boot to speed up boot times;

So to access the start up menu you have to as soon as you hit the power button you need to Repeatedly hit ESC and it will re direct you to the start up menu.

 

So it should it work If it does not then let me know :thumbup2:

Just to be clear this will work only at initial power up boot or will it work also for a reboot?

It was bought from a walmart in 2014 but How long it sat on the shelf or in the back storeroom is unknown. It did come with Win 8 installed.

Hello,

Ok seems new enough i would try it and see if it works. 

if everything fails then you can try to call HP and see what they think.

What's the model?

I have a type of HP computer myself, for me the "f2" key lets you get into a (hp made) diagnostics environment. Try pressing "f2" straight after turning the machine on, see if that gets you anywhere.


Another thing that can be helpful is holding "shift" during a restart to access windows' recovery environment, but I doubt it will help you in your present situation because as far as I know it only works if you can first get windows booted (you don't need to log in though). It may be helpful later in getting into the recovery environment if you have any kind of recovery media or such.
