There should be an on-screen cue as to which key to press "to enter Setup". Try F1, F2 and F12 too.
: I'm not uncomfortable getting into BIOS setup, it just appears right now that I CAN'T get into BIOS setup. I tried both F10 and delete, and nothing seemed to happen. The computer kept running through the memory scan, then the Windows logo window came up, then the BIOS page APPEARED to come back (it had the "Phoenix ROM BIOS" page w/copyright, etc., but I couldn't do anything in that window. It just appeared for about 20 seconds, then Windows started and my desktop came up. Is there something specific I should be doing other than just F10 and "delete" to get into the actual BIOS setup?
: Not only am I now feeling incredibly computer illiterate, but I'm also feeling incredibly frustrated.
: : Matt...until you activate USB on the motherboard, you won't really *have* USB. The ports and controller are switched off.
: : If you are uncomfortable or unable to get into BIOS setup, ask a friend or local 15-year old to help. Kids these days are awefully good with this stuff.
