so i went to the bios boot device priority to change boot order and it apears the following

 :BOOT ORDER:

1:HDD:SAMSUNG HM161HI-(S1)

3:USB KEY

4:USB CDROM

 

I NEED TO CHANGE NUMBER 2 TO NUMBER ONE! NUMBER TWO IS MY USB FLASH DRIVE, THE PROBLEM IS THAT I CANT FIGURE OUT WICH ARE THE KEYS TO CHANGE THE ORDER  IN THE HELP MENU I HAVE THIS:

 

KEYS USED TO VIEW OR CONFIGURE DEVICES:

UP AND DOWN ARROWS SELECT A DEVICE.

As this is your first post, welcome to Bleeping Computer!

 

Are you saying the + and - keys don't cause the selection to move in the list once you select it with the up/down arrows? It might be necessary to use the dedicated + and - keys in the number keypad, or if the keyboard doesn't have a number pad, there might be a function key to change keys to numeric action. For example my Asus netbook uses the blue Fn key to change / to +, and ; for -.

 

As an alternative, can you use * key to exclude the hard drive item 1 from the boot, which would make the USB the first boot device?

In my experience...to change a BIOS setting may require...selecting the item you wish to change with the keyboard, then hitting Enter to see the options for that item.

 

Hitting Enter will bring up the options...selecting the one you want involves selecting it via the keyboard then hitting Enter again.

 

My hard drive boot options and my boot options work that way.

 

I set the first option...before moving on to the others.
