Hi guys, I've an old(around 3 years old) HCL desktop computer. When I boot up my computer, first it shows HCL's splash screen. Then it directly goes to the "Boot from CD/DVD..." screen. On my other computer a screen appears before that which says at the top "Press DEL to enter setup". But that screen just gets skipped in this computer. But I need to set my flash drive's boot priority to the topmost. So I need to access BIOS setup for this.

Can anybody please help me with this? :huh:

Instructions for entering the BIOS (and other useful info) should be part of your onwer/user's manual. Have you checked it?

I know its silly but the computer is too old, I lost the manual.
Sorry, but it would be great if you or anyone else could still help me.

Can you give us the complete make/model of the system so that we can look it up for you.
I have never heard of HCL systems before.

I assume this system is in India
In the beginning there was the command line.

You could try different keys, F1, F2, Delete.

Also you could search for the manufacture of the motherboard and find out how to get into the bios from that documentation.

Thanks a lot for all the humble help guys. I finally got into the bios setup using DEL when on the splash screen. Problem Solved. :)
