Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

  1. I have picked up a fairly old PC with an Intel desktop mainboard and the bios is not accessible with the usual "delete" at boot up . I believe there is a switch on the board that i need to activate. I cannot find one - please does anyone know what i should be looking for and where about it might be positioned. Thx for any help.

    It might as well be insert or F2 key that you have to press. The manual will help.

    I really doubt th switch on the mobo thing. It would be ridiculous to force people to open up their computers (voiding the warranty) to change a BIOS setting.

    A neat trick is to boot the computer without the keyboard to make the BIOS display an error message and tell you what key to press to get into setup.
