What are boot F-Keys for my HP 500-281

HP Recommended
HP 500-281
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

What are the functions of the F Keys during boot? When having problems I have been give various F-Keys to use upon booting. It would be nice to just have a list of the function of the F-keys for reference.  I understand that F-Key function on boot are determined by the motherboard.

 

Thanks for an help.  Uncle Dewey

@UncleDewey, welcome to the forum.

 

When the computer begins to boot, you should begin tapping the "Esc" key once per second.  This will open the "Startup Menu" and it will show you which F keys to press for other features.
