Laptop is Toshiba Satalite M840
I have tried many times on switch-on pressing F8 key repeatedly but it still goes to Toshiba logo then switches on!
Would things be easier if i could borrow an old laptop (windows 7)?
The computer came preloaded with windows 8 so if i reformat i would loose the operating system.
