Windows 7: F8 And Opening Screen

F8 And Opening Screen


Have a 3 year old HP Pavillion Desktop.

Up until recently, when I started the PC and repeatedly pressed the F8 key, I had a screen that
allowed me to select "Disable Signed Drivers Requirement," or something very similar; can't remember the exact wording.

Something obviously changed, due to my fiddling around, or whatever.

I no longer have this screen coming up with F8.
Pressing F10 doesn't do it either.

Any idea on how to bring it back with F8

I have a program that has unsigned driver difficulties, and this is about the only way to run it.

Try F5 perhaps?

If you can't get it at startup, try method one in this link: Disable Digital Signature in Windows 7, 64 bit
