For my HP notebook it's F10 and my HP desktop is F1, but you already said those didn't work. I'm having this same problem with my older Compaq 5000. Can't figure out which button to press as I'm pretty sure I've tried all the Function buttons. They should make a standard button that goes into BIOS instead of every system being different...
