Default Bios menu

Hey guys this is my first post. My names dave im 21 and currently attending school in florida. And its good to be a part of this forum. Ive always wanted to build my own system, but I never had the knowledge until now.I look forward to learning and contributing what I can!

Now to my question...today in class we just got done learning about tweaking settings by using the BIOS menu. Seems very cool and I neever knew about it before. I only have like 5 settings I cant change. One of them is fan speed and has " [enter]" next to it. What would this be? Would this be fan speed or a different fan speed??? I dont really want to change anything unless I know what it is. My other question is, can I somehow override the system and adjust more things by using some sort of program?

Thanks
Dave

its under the "advanced section"

its just say "fan speed"....then has something I can change. but im not real sure what I should do with that, or what it does. Its a pretty limited menu I would say.

Ill check out that software too!

its doesnt show a specific value...I also went to the maufacterer website and it does not say either.

It looks like this...


Battery Alarm [Disable]

CPU Fan [ENTER] <-how its acutally displayed

etc
etc
