Reinstall Windows XP Home

  mctrout 11:41 12 Aug 08

Hello, I am trying to Reinstall WinXP on my daughters PC, but I cannot get Into the BIOS to set it to CDROM. She has a AMD Sempron Processor 3400+ & it says to press Esc to open the BIOS & select the First Boot Device. I have also tried the F2 key, Del key but they wont get me there either. Can anyone please help me to sort this out.
Thanks Mac

Are you doing it at bootup?You have to pres f2 or Esc continuously while the computer is booting up to get into the bios usually.

I took my Keyboard round to my daughters this morning pressed the Esc then the Del keys & it worked as it should, & I formatted the hard Drive easy.
My daughter has a Wirless Keyboard & she noticed that the keyboard was still opening up, while I was trying to press the Esc key & windows opened before the keyboard was able to be used.
Thanks Mac
