Set up problem

  fullywired23 13:40 27 May 2004

Just installed win xp on a friends comp .everythings ok but ,we can't get in to "set up" When we press delete during POST it goes to the screen where you have the options of starting normally or starting in safe mode etc but no set up.
Has anyone any ideas please on the possible cause?

It's a PC chips M/B 256ram xp2400chip

Check the board for a CMOS clearing jumper, it should be in the run position

it will say on screen briefly which key to press

you need to be quick though

look for 'press xx to enter set up'

have you tried both the DEL and the DELETE keys?
