It really depends on who made the machine, but when your computer first starts you can access the BIOS before the OS boots up. Usually by pressing DEL, F8, or F2 (like i mentioned, depends on who made it) during the initial POST and everything turning on, right after you press the power button on the computer (within the first 5-15 seconds, usually)

Hope that helps Marty

marty that thing is programmed into the bios...only way to get around it is to reprogram the bios. you have to have an electronic programmer to do that.

you will need something like this:

Hi Marty

There is only one way to enter BIOS setup and that way is specific to whatever OEM machine you have or the BIOS version/maker.

So if you have an OEM DEll, you have one way to enter BIOS, Gateway has another, or if you have Phoenix BIOS it may be a different way but there is only one way to access it for each machine. That's why your friend has a different way to access the BIOS than you do, but say you had a Dell machine and they had the same Dell as you, you both would access the BIOS in the same way.

Since it is not a part of Windows, it cannot be accessed thru a command prompt or the run box.

Hope this helps.
