Lots of possibilities, F1, Alt-Ctrl-Esc, Alt-Ctrl-S are the more common key strokes.

Different manufacturers have different ways of getting into the BIOS..

You will want to watch very closely as the machine boots up. It will usually say how to get in.. As an example, Compaq uses F10 to get into the Bios on their Ipaq and SFF machines.

If you don't see this info, you might want to visit the manufacurers website for the instructions. Not knowing the exact type you are working with makes it hard for me to guess..

Best of Luck.

The common keys to get into the BIOS are F1,F2,F10,and DEL. I had the same issue on one unit and what I ended up having to do is looking on the systemboard and removing the jumper for cleaing CMOS. You can also try to just remove the battery while the computer is off and unplugged. When you go to reboot it will stop on the screen that gives you the choice to enter the bios. And you wil then see what key it is. Hope this works for you.
