How do I get into my BIOS

I have a IBM Netvista 6269  I need to get into the bios and don't know what key to hit.  I have tried all of the normal keys.  If someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks in advance.

GTKINC,

You should be able to access it by pressing F1.  If there is a system or administrative password then you will need to enter that.  If you want to enter IBM's recovery program then use the F11 key.  Either key should be pressed just as the computer starts to enter the BIOS/Recovery.

if those keys do not work, try another keyboard  -  PS/2 is preferred

In this case it is necessary to completely shut down and hold <F1> while booting.

This is the correct way of accessing the bios for your system

Press and hold down F1 and turn on the computer. If your computer is
already on when you start this procedure, you must shut down the
operating system, turn off the computer, wait a few seconds until all in-use
lights go off, and restart the computer.

(Do not use Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart the computer.)

If this does not work you might have to reset the bios via the motherboard jumper, or try holding ESC and turn on, should give a keboard error and give the option of going into setup.

GTKINC,

I'm glad to see that you reopened it.  I wasn't going to mention anything but the same information was in my reply (http:Q_21897661.html#16973429) which was even more prompt. :-)

Split the points because each added a piece of different knowledge that was needed in order for me to get in.
