I have re-installed '95, but the 'num lock' doesn't come on at start up. I have seen an option for this but I can't find it now. It's not in Setup, I think I need to get into BIOS, but can't find my way back in!

To get into BIOS you need to either press the F1 key or delete key. If this does not work there maybe a jumper setting on the motherboard which has disabled getting into BIOS, you need to activate this and the go into BIOS

Thanks, F1 is to enter Setup, delete takes you into DOS. There is a third area, I've been there because I remember the option to have 'Press F1 to enter setup' on the startup menu! Is it a DOS command, I wonder?

F1 Should be BIOS, you will need to search though the menus in there to enable Num_Lock Key.

Try tapping the F8 key on startup, this may take you into BIOS on the system you have. The option to enable/disable is usualy in the BIOS. j.

Thanks, F8 takes you to the Safe Mode options.

Found it! It IS in setup, under Boot Options.

I still remember seeing a screen with Passwords at the top, and time options on the right. You can turn IDEs on and off.
