|Subject:||Can't Access BIOS|
|Date:||Thu, 26 Sep 2013|
I have an old, but working Dell Optiplex GX280 with XP SP3.
Lately it has been taking too long (like 2-3 minutes) to boot up.
I thought to look at the BIOS to see if anything there could be
causing trouble, and have discovered that I cannot enter the BIOS. I
have tried <F2> and <Delete>. Nothing. I also have tried <F8> to
come up in Safe Mode. Again nothing. I changed keyboards and USB
connections. Again nothing.
