Default Bios


Can somebody tell which button do we have to use to get to BIOS, I have IBM notepad 2645-4EU.

Problem is when it is booting it just does not give me enough time to try too many buttons. It boots up way too fast....

some advice plz.

From boot, try these different buttons once per second....
F8, F1, Del, F10, F2

I haven't used an IBM comp before but some computers have a splash screen where it diplays the comp brand name if you see one try hitting those keys while the splash is up.

also if you have the comp documentation it should be listed in it.

I have model #2645-8BU. I couldn't remember how to boot up either. I went to the IBM website and looked it up. The following text is cut-and-paste from the IBM website:

"8. Press and hold the F1 key, then turn on the computer. Hold the F1key until the Easy-Setup menu appears."

Hope this helps.
