Greetings, Andy_UK!
  Sometimes you have to time it right to get into the Bios settings. When you see the first logo screen, keep one of the following keys:  DEL, F1, F2 or F10.  If you see the memory self test, the screen tells you which key to hit.

Best wishes, war1

If you aren't sure what key you need to enter Bios, sometimes just holding down a couple of keys on the keyboard during bootup will give a keyboard error and you will be asked if you want to enter Bios.

Hello Andy_UK.


Try this.
When powering the Tecra on have the Escape key depressed. You should then a screen asking you to press F1 to continue. This should take you into the BIOS.

Good luck.

Did you try ESC?  some Tecra's use the ESC button.

And as stated by war1 keep hitting it?


Also take a look at this page:
http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/bios_manufacturer.htm

It may contain key combinations that may work for your machine.  However the traditional Tecra is F1 or ESC
