mine also has done this a few times, but i found that switching the system off, rebooting and doing that again a few times got it work My problem is that the keyboard died and i couldnt use the arrow keys to select safe mode etc etc

Other than that, i think its impossible....google it mate, you might find something

weird, if it dont work in dos then it shouldnt work in windows as windows goes through dos initially and runs over the top of dos as a front end.

Yup. And if it's turned off, you can't use a USB keyboard to turn it on, which is a pain in the arse.

Some stupid Microsoft keyboards have an "F-lock" button that you have to press before the F-keys work yes. Another possibility.
