Question Boot Manager Problem

hi guys, id really appreciate your help!

fairly new to macs (about 6 months)

my Mac 27" mid 2010 (Intel core i3) will not boot into boot manager what so ever. I've tried pressing the opt keys both at same time, both separately, before and after the start-up chime.. nothing seems to work

i also have a mac air and I've done the same on this and it boots up first time into boot manager so i know I'm doing it right?

if you would like me to post any other computer information please let me know.

any ideas?

Are you trying this with a wireless keyboard?
If so try with a wired keyboard see if same thing happens.

Are you using bootcamp? What do you see on the screen when attempting to boot?
