    What change are you trying to make? What happens when you try to get into the BIOS? How are you trying, and are you able to boot into the OS?

When you turn on your desktop , You see Dell screen , as soon as you see that, keep on tapping F2 key which is on the top most row.

If in case you do not see DELL coming on the screen which will happen rarely, so can tap f2 key as soon as you turn our system on.

HOW TO REST MOTHERBOARD AFTER CHANGING BATTERY


If you changed the CMOS battery you in effect reset it. On boot up, go into the BIOS setup and check all settings. Even if you don't change any of the BIOS settings, save them as if you did and it will reboot. Should be OK then.

How do i set my laptop to booth from cd/dvd?


There are 2 things you could do. 1) you can change the boot settings in the bios or 2) you can choose the the boot device on the logo screen or bios screen on startup. to do #1 you need to press either DEL or F2 on the logo/bios screen. inside you can change the boot priority. for #2 once you see the logo/bios screen you can either press F10, F11 or F2 to go to the boot device selection. To know which buttons to press for these once you are on the bios screen the right button will be flashed.

If your computer won't boot without a password or you need a password to enter the computer set-up or change the settings, then you have a BIOS password set. BIOS is an acronym for basic input/output system.

The BIOS is the basic instruction set that teaches the computer how to access disk drives, keyboard, display etc. The BIOS is typically placed on a ROM chip in the computer hence the term ROM BIOS.

The ROM BIOS allows the computer to boot itself. The BIOS is required to boot the computer. Thus, if the BIOS is password protected, the computer will not boot (or you will not be able to enter or change the BIOS settings.)

using the arrows keys scroll to Advanced Bios Features change the first boot device to cd rom press escape the F10 save to cmos to restart

BIOS is a software program that controls basic functions in your computer, such as boot order, keyboard control and how your processor interacts with memory cards









Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter to change boot devices
press f10 to save to cmos escape then restart your computer

if you need to change any of the settings using the arrow keys if you have made any changes that has compromised your computer
you can go back and load failsafe or optimised defaults


hope this helps you

Restart your computer. When you see the first screen you will have 2 options. One is a BIOS setup. It's either F8 or F1. Once you get into your BIOS (screen will be mostly blue). There will be a boot option screen. Make sure you chance the #1 device to CD-Rom.
