computer/motherboard Manufacturers Use Different Methods To Access The
bios Setup. You Need To Check The Documentation That Came With Your
computer, Contact The Computer Manufacturer's Tech Support, Or Post
the Make & Model Of Your Computer/motherboard Back Here.

one Trick That Sometimes Works Is To Unplug The Keyboard Before You
turn The Computer On. Often This Will Result In A "no Keyboard" Type
error Message That Gives A Couple Of Choices, Such As "press F1 To
continue, F2 To Enter Setup". Then You Can Plug The Keyboard Back In
and Press The Designated Key(s) To Get Into The bios Setup. But This
doesn't Always Work. Some Computers Just Ignore This And Continue To
boot Up.

good Luck

you Have To Press The Appropriate Key At The Right Time, Before windows Even
starts To Boot. Just Keep Tapping It Twice A Second Or So Right After
switching On The Power And You'll Get In

are You Sure That F1 Or F2 Is The Correct Key? how To Get Into Your bios
depends, Not On windows, But On What Motherboard/bios You Have. As A Matter
of Fact, You Have To Access The bios Before windows Even Starts To Boot. One
common Way Is To Press The Del Key When You First Power On, But That's Not
necessarily Right For Your Computer. Watch The screen Carefully When You
first Boot; There's Often A Message There Telling You What To Do. If Not,
check Your System Documentation Or Check With Your Vendor.

also Look Here: Http://michaelstevenstech.com/bios_manufacturer.htm Or Just
try The Del Key. There's A Good Chance That's Correct For You.

Re: How To Open Bios Screen In Windows Xp




if F1 Or F2 Does Not Work, It Could Be The Del Key?

as Stated Before, The Is No Standard "bios" Access Key. Each Motherboard
maker May Have Their Own Sequence.

hey Armando,

follow Those Guys Advice In That You Need To Start Trying To Press The Keys
before You See Anything On The screen And You Need To Keep Tapping The Key
over And Over Again Until You Either See Entering Setup Or You See The Setup
screen. Whether It Be The F1 F2 Or Del Key Is An Unknown To Us.

one More Thing I'd Like To Mention Out Of My Own Experience I Had A Dell In
the Shop The Other Day It Didn't Want To Enter The bios And Then I Noticed
during The First Load Up When It Asked Me To Hit F2 The Usb Optical Mouse Was
lit Up And Flashing Like It Was Thinking Until The screen Was Gone. I Ended
up Unplugging The Usb Mouse And The F2 Key Worked Fine. I Guess It Was
running Its Post Test On The Usb Devices During This Time And Had The
keyboard Disabled. So If You Can't Get Into The bios You May Try Unplugging
all Usb Devices(except A Keyboard If Yours Is Usb) And Then Try Hitting The
f1 F2 Or Del Keys. Good Luck.

The Operating System Is Immaterial, It Has No Bearing Upon how One
enters The bios.

In The Extremely Unlikely Event That Your Pc's Manual Or The
motherboard Manufacturer's Web Site Doesn't Contain The Needed
information, Try One Or More Of The Following:
