The BIOS key is not part of Windows 7, it's set in your system. Look online for your computer model and it shold give you what key you can hit at boot up for the BIOS. Usually it's F1, F2, sometimes Del.

Are you mashing the DEL button right from the moment you press the go button? lol you may just be missing the post.

Alternatively, In your POST screen press the PAUSE/BREAKE button on your keyboard and find where it says PRESS "x" TO ENTER BIOS...

You should press the Del button as soon as the computer switches on (during the post screen) and keep on repeatedly pressing it until you get into the BIOS. This way you will be sure to hit the key at the right time.

If you can boot into windows:


* Close all open programs.
* Press the Windows key + R. The "Run" tab appears.
* Type msconfig and then click [OK].
* The System Configuration Utility appears, click on the tab. Select the Safe Boot . Make sure the box "Minimal" is checked and then click [OK].

* Then you will be prompted to restart the computer. Click [Restart]. The computer restarts in Safe mode. **(This may take several minutes.)
* Perform troubleshooting in safe mode.
* When you've completed your troubleshooting in safe mode, repeat the early steps to uncheck the "Safe boot".
* Close all programs and restart the computer.

you people are not listening to the issue! I have the same issue as well.
"my bios button is delete. when i had xp a week ago, it entered bios. Now that i upgraded to win 7, when i press del, it goes into windows advanced settings? im pressing the same button :cry:  "
now if i wanted to get to safe mode i could do that in a jiffy. ITS THE BIOS WE CANNOT ENTER! windows 7 seems to have eliminated the possibility of ever entering the bios ever again. f1, f2, f8, f12, delete.... all take you to advanced windows boot options! all i want to do is boot off a linux usb stick, and write zeros to the drive and be done with this windows 7 junk... which I would do 10 seconds after entering the BIOS!

Windows cannot afect the way the BIOS works, it is totaly isolated from anything that Windows7 can do to it. A program in windows can alter the BIOS settings but a simple clear CMOS memory should fix this.
