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.
