Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Watch for a “entering setup” message in the first few seconds after turning on your computer. This message varies greatly from computer to computer and also includes the key or keys you need to press to enter BIOS. Quickly press the key or keys instructed by the previous message to get into BIOS.

    Hi, Within a few seconds of pressing your Power button to turn your system on, you should be able to access your bios by repeatedly pressing the appropriate key based on your system. The key is usually F1 or F2 . Sometimes it's the DEL key. If your system continues to boot into Vista, you've missed the short window of time where the bios is accessible. Retry the operation a bit quicker after pressing the Power button to turn your PC on. You can also try one of the other keys if you're unsure of the correct key for your system. Best Regards,

    On most systems, during the initial boot, in the lower left hand corner there will be a display telling you how to access the BIOS / Setup.  It can be a combination of the function keys like F1, F2, or F10, or it could be delete key.  This is normally based on the installed BIOS to the system and this varies from BIOS to BIOS.  It also can be affected by other means such as Fast Boot Turned on which may turn off parts of the bios display on startup
