Dell Optiplex - Getting into BIOS

  bremner 19:26 15 Dec 2003

Some friends have an old Dell Optiplex GL5100 with a Pheonix 1.1 BIOS.

I want to get into the BIOS but there is no message on booting up telling you what key to prees to enter setup etc.

I have tried all the keys I can think of and without going through every key does anyone know which key I should press.

Sure I tried that with no luck but will try again. Thanks

Thanks for the link - that says F2 or Del.

Del was the first thing I tried so will definitely try F2 again.

Got back to the machine this morning.

Tried Del & F2 still no luck. Have just seen Sir Radfordln suggestion will give that a try

Will be attacking the machine again on Boxing Day when I will try F12. Have repeated tried F1, F2 and Del none of which work.
