Press F2 immediately after turning the notebook ON, during POST, while notebook PC logo is being displayed.

Thanks a lot Romeo29. I will use F2 next time instead of Del.
While still on the subject of BIOS. Is there a way how to back-up the bios on an acer aspire notebook rather then having to write it down for future reference.
Thanks once again.
Joe :huh:

It is better to manually write down settings on a piece of paper or use a digital camera and take snaps of each screen in BIOS. BIOS backup/restore tools do not work always and may corrupt BIOS making your PC un-bootable (the only option in that case is to send it back to manufacturer). So better stick to manual method.
