    Hi Shewta,
    Is this a laptop or desktop? For laptops

    1 Restart the computer. Go to BIOS (F8 or F12)
    2. In the BIOS setup utility, open the Configuration menu, and change the setting of HotKey Switch from Hotkey Mode to Legacy Mode.
    3. Open the Exit menu, and select Exit Saving Changes.
