depends on what computer you are using. as a rule its simple and only involves striking a key at startup. the normal keys are: ins, ctrl, del and f1. i would start by trying delete. just press it repeatedly after you turn on your computer and if nothing comes up restart your computer and try another key.

is it an Intel motherboard? as far as i know intel boards are the main exception. i've heard a lot of them require you to shift a jumper on the motherboard to access the BIOS.

Is it a custom PC or a name brand PC. It could be any of the following:

- Delete
- F2
- F10
