start your PC and look at your screen...somewhere during startup it says something like 'press DEL to enter setup'

Sometimes you need to pres delete sometimes F12..depends on your Mobo.

It's not dangerous unless you overclock your system too much or change settings you are not sure about

there is no threat wat so ever to go in the bios, it can be f12 like he said, also f8 or f3, most of the time is del. Int he bios u find all ur mobos settings, dont modify them unless u know what u are doing. Overclockng is done in the bios as he said, but dont do it unless u know what you are doing
My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
