Have you used the F2 key with success on this board before? since you did not specify the bios type, then try the DELETE key instead of the F2 key.

I have a dell desktop computer, windows 98 and it is coming up in bios mode and tells me to push f1 to reboot, or f2 to setup, and i pushed f2 and still won't boot back up? How do I setup in Bios mode?

The --timing-- of when you press F2 is critical. And it also takes a bit of luck.. :) Assuming your F2 button is functional (Check for dust/dirt under it) start pressing your F2 button repeatedly just as soon as you see the first message on the screen, but BEFORE Windows starts to come up. I've been repairing Dells for many years and still it sometimes takes me 2-3 tries to get F2 at that "just right" moment.

Note: if you press F2 too many times, each press results in a beep. That means the keyboard buffer is full, and no further presses will matter, so if its not up by that point, give up and try again.

Hi, I am trying to set my Toshiba Satellite

Just before the laptop boots, a Toshiba screen opens inviting F2 or F12. This will let you into the BIOS menu if you press F2 at that time. When you are there, find Default Settings in the menu and press F10 and enter.
That is now set to default and you can start the restore process.
Hope that helps.

It is ok?

It is not a potential threat when you started getting this message after your installed the memory module but its annoying.I would suggest you to reset your bios setting and save and exit. If its still not working kindly revert back to me...

Thanks and Regards...

My pc-av18 will start up and go to the main sharp screen but will not load windows. When i push F2 for the setup menu, it asks me for a password. I don't know the password and am in need of removing if...

I am assuming F2 takes you into the bios, sometimes the password can be dissabled in the notebook system settings menu, but try 'oooo' or 'ooooo'.
