System Setup (BIOS)

CAUTION: Do not change the settings in system setup unless you
are an expert computer user. Certain changes can cause your
computer to work incorrectly.
The BIOS is the first program that runs on your computer when you turn
it on. The primary function of the BIOS is to load and start the operating
system. When the computer starts, the BIOS initializes and identifies
system devices such as the video card, keyboard and mouse, hard disk,
optical drive, and so on.
You can use the BIOS to:
• Change the system configuration information after you add, change,
or remove any hardware in your computer
• Set or change a user-selectable option such as the user password
• Determine the current amount of memory or the type of hard drive
installed
Entering System Setup (BIOS)
CAUTION: Do not change system setup configuration unless you
are an expert computer user. Incorrect configuration can cause your
computer to work incorrectly or damage your computer.
NOTE: Before you change system setup configuration, it is
recommended that you note the current system setup configuration
for future reference.
1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.
2. When the DELL logo is displayed, wait for the F2 prompt to appear and
then press <F2> immediately.
NOTE: The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized.
This prompt appears quickly and is displayed only briefly. Therefore
you must press <F2> immediately once the prompt appears. If you
press <F2> before the prompt appears or after the prompt closes,
the keystroke is lost. If you wait too long and the operating system
logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows
desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again.
