press the Del key (part of the numeric pad on the right of a normal keyboard. Also controls the . button) whilst windows is starting.

When you turn on your PC, you should get a DOS msg "press the Del key to enter set-up".

That should take you straight there in 90% of the time.

SOME PCs use another key.

Start the machine with the tab key held down.

A word of caution though, don't make changes unless you are sure about what it is your changing, you could render your machine usless.

I would suggest you make one change at a time if you intend to do more than one, that way it is easier track down any change that causes a problem.
