\015\012How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
\015\012Reasoning:\015\012\015\012IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
\015\012Solution:\015\012Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
\015\012\015\012Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
\015\012New computers\015\012\015\012Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.
\015\012
    \015\012
  • F1 \015\012
  • F2 \015\012
  • ESC \015\012
  • DEL \015\012
  • F10
\015\012A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
\015\012\015\012Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
\015\012Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.
