    What key must I press on my Satellite Pro M70-220 during startup of Win XP, in order to get into the "Advanced Start Menu" - that is, the menu that gives various boot options, such as Safe Mode, Last Good Startup Congiguration, Normal Windows Startup, etc. ?

    On my old Satellite 5105-S702 laptop it was the F8 key, but pressing the F8 key on my Pro M70 does not appear to bring up the "Advanced Start Menu".

    The Advanced Start Menu came up on its own a couple days ago, after an abnormal shutdown, so it would appear that it does exist on the Pro M70.

    Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.

    Hi

    The Advanced Boot Menu can be reached pressing the F8 button.
    Itís a Windows based menu and itís no matter what notebook it is.
    It should work on all computers.

    Maybe you cannot enable the Advanced Boot Menu because the Windows OS is muddled up.

    Hi Jaba

    I tried again, this time pressing F8 repeatedly, and it worked.

    Thanks for your help.
