Question about E-Machines -T1840-CELERON-1.8GHz,40GB Desktop Computer System (1000000127)
my computer wont let me go into bios. i dont remember the code. the problem is i cut it on it goes through the upload then it goes to the main screen for 1 sec. then it restarts over and over again. if i had the bio code i think that would help so i can check the computer status.
I have had a bad hard drive cause this sort of problem. The battery looks like a nickel. Hence the name coin battery.

AMI uses DEL
Award, Phoenix uses CTRL-ALT-ESC
