How to access the BIOS ?

  1. 1.      How to access the BIOS ?The BIOS or Basic Input Output System refers to a software programthat is stored in a permanent memory (ROM) on the motherboard of aPC. BIOS is executed immediately after switching on the system. TheBIOS software, also known as firmware, fits exactly to the actualmotherboard and is therefore not simply interchangeable. One of theBIOS tasks is to initialize all the existing hardware of a PC and then startthe operating system.Initializing of the hardware is done by POST which stands for Power OnSelf Test.Each BIOS provides the ability to change certain settings on thehardware. To make these adjustments, we must first enter the BIOSitself.Each BIOS manufacturer uses different key combinations for thispurpose. If these combinations are then held down for a moment rightafter starting the computer, the BIOS then interrupts the normal bootprocess and the BIOS menu will appear.Commonly used keys or key combinations to access the BIOS are:DEL ESC F1 F2 or F10Here a tip: Just after the start of the system you will often see a smallmessage on the screen that shows you the exact key combination toaccess your BIOS!If you want to see and hear more about this: www.paulpaulito.com
