Hi all, ever since I bought my Dell Dimension C521 I have not been able to enter the boot menu or the system setup when I start the computer. My usb keyboard does not start until the windows vista login screen. So I can hit f2 all thru the start up and it still not activate the keyboard until the login screen. I do not have a ps2 slot. How can I get to those menus???Im not shure what kind of MOBO I have.
Try using cpuid, a free download, to id your motherboard chipset and ram specs. You can also try the "del" key to enter the bios at the post screen. Dell bios adjustments are limited; I would not change them except for the boot order is it's an option. If your system is stable, leave the bios alone. Dell boards aren't designed for overclockers or tweakers. If you want to play with your bios settings, I suggest you build your own.
