thanks i went to the hp site and they said that you have to press F1 during the blue start up screen to access bios. they should put it as an option on the start up screen instead of making you look for it. thanks though!
[color=red][color=red]when my comp starts up i followed the instructions and pressed F2 and when that didn't work i tried del and neither worked. any other ways to get bios to start so that i can get the computer to check the cdrom to start up darik's boot and nuke? PLEASE HELP!
