Can any remind me what the key strokes are to enter the BIOS in an Advent PC running XP please.

Does it not tell you at the bottom of the first screen when you boot up? Different OEMs use different keys. Try either F1, F2 or Delete keep dabbing the key as you bootup until after the RAM check. Alternatively go to the motherboard Mfr and see if you can find a manual to look at.

Unusually the "press del to enter set up" does not appear during POST but I eventually sorted the problem out.

With this PC (And presumably other Advent PCs) a splash screen appears before the POST displays. I found that pressing del before the POST displayed let me into the BIOS.
