Re: Bios not loading when hitting DEL
Have you tried using a PS/2 keyboard? Or the other way around, a USB keyboard.
Additionally you can try doing a reset on the motherboard by temporarily relocating the jumper on the CMOS reset pins (JP1 close to the Lithium battery) from 2-3 to 1-2 for a couple of seconds then back. Normally, once performed, the motherboard on the next boot will revert to default and auto request a CMOS setup. Alternately you can also temporarily remove the battery for about 15 minutes.
If the USB and/or PS/2 KB nor the CMOS reset does not allow you to enter the BIOS setup, perhaps you need to return the board for replacement since this is indicative of MB failure.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

You need to go into your bios and set your boot device priority. It's set to boot to the hard disk before the CD. You need to change that so the PC will try to boot to the CD first.
To access the Bios, you will need to it the key you are prompted to hit "to enter setup" You should see this while the machine is booting.
Typically you tap either F2 or Del to get into the bios. Once you fine the Boot device priority and change it, you will need to hit F10 to save your changes and exit.
If this does not fix your problem, you may have a problem with your cd drive. Hope this helps.
start your PC and press or hit the DEL or F2 key to enter into CMOS setting and set your first boot device into DVD or CD. or in the CMOS / BIOS setting just simply LOAD THE OPTIMAL DEFAULTS OR LOAD SETUP DEFAULT and save and Exit.
What is ur OS and board?
Upon starting click on "del" to go to BiOS and go "BOOT" sequence, choose CD ROM as ur 1st boot sequence! Exit w/ save changes!
Now ur ready to install a new Windows OS, insert a OS cd and re start ur desktop!
upon starting "START CD ROM" click on "enter"!
Let ur windows do everything and follow the instructions!

Check the BIOS ("del" key upon start-up or "F1, F2 or F10" depending on system to access the menu). Check for audio setting (may need to scroll through menu categories to see if onboard audio is enabled). If disabled, try to enable it by hit spacebar, left/right arrow key or + - keys to change setting. If it is an add-on sound card you may need to install or re-install the drivers and in this case the onboard audio should be disabled in BIOS.
as i recall, ntloader is software for the OS load, after hardware boot, so you already passed up your chance to enter bios, which you realize. i used to have a toshiba laptop, was it the delete key or F2 to enter BIOS? try delete, and make sure youre pressing it from restart like once a second as it's booting to make sure you hit it in the windows of time it's looking for key presses before it's time to load the operating system. you'll be fine. it's just unnerving to be locked out like that...
