I want to change the settings on the BIOS but when I get into the BIOS at start up the only settings I can see are the boot choices.  The 1st setting is the floppy drive but I want to change it to the CD drive.  However, there is no way to do this.  I can arrow down to the drive but there is no way of promoting it to be the main boot device.  When I arrow down and press enter the computer just boots.

There are no other menus in the BIOS in this case which seems a bit strange.

1. 1st option, you may remove your motherboard battery for few minutes and put it back
2. 2nd option, you may looking into your motherboard and search for 3 pin which return as "BIOS"

By default it was in pin 1 and pin 2. So you need to make it at pin 2 and pin 3 for few minutes
