I have been given an Advent mini tower, it has a 2.2ghz pentium 4 processor and 512mb of Ram, but i cannot find any model number in evidence, but it does have a SiS-645 motherboard if that helps. I have tried the PC WORLD WEBSITE, is bloody useless as far as i am concerned. What i need to know is which key do i press to get into the bios? I have tried the ones i normally regard as usual, like F2,F8 or Del but no joy, so if someone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

keep pressing delete on the keyboard from the moment you turn it on. Should go in by pressing delete.

This website might help. I have an old Advent PC, and it had quite a bit of information about it.

F2 is the bios key ,assuming your using a standard keyboard.

Problem sokved, it was delete in the end, the real problem was the signal from the keyboard to the pc, once i changed to an old Dell keyboard the delete key worked, many thanks to all that answered.
