I can't seem to get into my bios.
The bios screen goes by pretty fast, but I was able to catch that the F2 button is the one I need to hit. But no matter how I try to push it, the bios won't come up. I've tried a different keyboard and also a ps/2 keyboard, still nothing. I've also tried different buttons just in case, ie F3, F10, F12, delete, esc, etc.
Here's the reason why I need to get into the bios: I'm trying to install a new cd-rom. Right now, I have 1 HDD and 1 cd-rom, both of which are SATA drives. The new cd-rom drive I'm trying to install is IDE. I installed the new drive and everything worked fine, but now when I try to boot the computer, it is trying to boot from the cd-rom IDE drive and I'm getting a boot failure error. If I unplug the cd-rom IDE drive, the computer boots fine. So I'm assuming I just need to change the boot order in the BIOS and that should fix the problem.
Any ideas on how to get into the BIOS or different ways of fixing my boot problem?
