I am helping a friend troubleshoot a Toshiba DC19V 237.A

This laptop has no function keys so there is no way push F12 to get to the boot menu.

I don't find a manual on line.

Do any of you folks have any idea ho to get to the boot menu on this machine?

If F12 isn't working use F2 to get into the BIOS and change the boot device.

If there are no function keys how do you use F2 instead of F12?

Maybe try the DEL key, or ESC key?

Can't find any Toshiba DC19V 237.A
But Toshiba DC19V 2.37A is a charger!

If you are running Windows 10 you can access the boot menu a number of ways. See linked article.

Someone posted the same thing about a Toshiba Laptop in another forum. After closer examination there are F keys, just in very small letters.

Another option is to use a USB connected keyboard that does have F keys.

I may get a magnifying glass and see if there is anything too small to see. My eyes aren't that great.

The reason I need the boot menu is that Windows 10 doesn't load.

Jack, thanks. There really are numbers there. It did take a magnifying glass but I am not sure I could have seen those when I was 25.
