The exact directions depends on your motherboard and what bios it has.

Give us the make/model of the computer or the motherboard manufacturer and model number.

The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins.

BIOS Setup Program Menu Bar:

Maintenance: Clears passwords and displays processor information

Main: Displays processor and memory configuration

Advanced: Configures advanced features available through the chipset

Security: Sets passwords and security features

Power: Configures power management features and power supply controls

Boot:Selects boot options (this is the one you use to set the boot order)

Exit:Saves or discards changes to Setup program options

<F10> Save the current values and exits the BIOS Setup program

<Esc> Exits the menu

You may want to save the following file which is the technical manual for your motherboard.
It is a PDF file which opens with Adobe Viewer (free if you don't already have it)
