did this happen while you are using a standard keyboard and mouse? Or are you using wireless ones?

What is the model number?

Tap F8 key while booting and see if you can get into Safe Mode. If so we can help further from there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Re #4

The F keys might work during bootup, before Windows starts. What is meant by the "start screen" is not clear from the original post - possibly desktop. If the keys never work from day one it rather confirms what the shop said.
