Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
I installed a new motherboard for the Dell Inspiron 1000, when it powers up it shows the Dell screen asking F2- go to setup or F!2 - go to system boot. I tried both, nothing but blank screen. I can't get to bios with F8? Any suggestions?
The F5 and F8 functions are normally used by Windows to shoose between C:\, Safe Mode and normal boot.
Setup is a function of the BIOS manufacturer and it could be any key but is normally F1 or F2 as the screen says in your case.
I don't know what your specific problem is but it is a new board and sometimes they don't survive the installation due to improper handling.
The almost universal use of CMOS technology makes some of the chips very sensitive to static discharge even with countermeasures in place to protect them.
