can't get into Setup at boot-up

A friend has a problem that was solved in this forum - his computer switches on when the phone rings. The explanation of how to cure it is clear, involving changing a setting in the BIOS but he can't carry it out as when he boots up (Windows ME) he doesn't get the screen that says "press del to enter the setup". His pc goes straight from a blank screen to the ME logo etc. Solution , please.

Hi, When the computer is starting up, tap F2 or DEL, this should get it into BIOS. Cheers, Bill
