entering bios screen when there are no specific keys specified

Jump to solution

Intel mobo model D915GAV/D915PGN and/or E210882 installed in a NO NAME desktop which appears to be an HP clone. Same psu, memory, same sata drives, same mechanical design. Issue is that the "SPLASH" screen is INTEL,P4 INSIDE. NO F keys or any other key on the screen to use to enter bios. I want to experiment with different open source OS's. But I need to start the CDs from the BIOS screen just like a WINDOWS installation. These are LIVE CDs. I do not know if they will be read from the desktop like any installation cd. I NEED to know how to enter the bios so I can start the cd from there. What key(s) do I need/ This is literally a NO NAME computer. NO labels, or printed info anywhere, inside and out. Other than it looks like an HP design, I can not tell you if it actually is. The numbers are directly from the board. Solutions please. mailto:reeltroreelguy@gmail.com reeltroreelguy@gmail.com

Hello Marc Orlando,

If this is an Intel motherboard, you should be able to go to the BIOS pressing the F2 key, even when the option is not on the "splash screen".

In order to find out the model number of that desktop, look if it has a white sticker with an AA# on the middle and let me know.

On this link you will be able to find some information regarding the part # E210882.
