Cant accept Windows Installation

  Viv-208691 19:37 18 Dec 2004

Hi, Im trying to reinstall Win Xp on my PC but when it says 'F8 = I agree' it doesnt respond to me pressing it!! Has anyone any idea why? The keyboard is working fine since it accepts my decision if i press 'escape' to exit.

Cheers, FT

yes but the key may be duff only way to find out is try the keyboard on another comp, or try a new keyboard

it says f8 on the front side of the key and 'Fwd' on the top, should this make any odds?

No, there isnt. Any more suggestions?

Have you got one of those fancy keyboards that do all extra bits instead of the mouse? If so then make sure that you set it to make F8 work instead of "Spell" or whatever! I have just had the same problem with F6!!

Sorry crx1600, you were correct, it was hiding away round the back of the keyboard (weird)! Thanks a lot, excuse my ignorance!
