Setting up BIOS and CMOS.



There have a lot of manufacturing company in word for manufacture PC and every manufacturing company try to use their unique symbol and coding system in their invention.

Example : “Esc” for maximum Toshiba systems, “F1” for Toshiba systems and maximum using Phoenix BIOS , “F10” for maximum Compaq systems, “F2” for maximum NEC systems, “Ctrl-Alt-Enter” for maximum Dell systems, “Ctrl-Alt-?” for maximum IBM PS/2s, “Ctrl-Alt-Esc” for maximum Award BIOS, “Ctrl-Alt-Ins” and “Ctrl-Alt-S” for maximum Phoenix BIOS,

Most of PC manufacturing company uses same polices for enter in BIOS or CMOS setup. Mainly F1 , ESC, F2, DEL, F10 keys are used for entering in BIOS setup page of anyone’s PC. These keys when a user see a text such as Press <DEL> to enter BIOS setup.
