 System setup

CAUTION: Unless you are an expert computer user, do not change the settings in the BIOS Setup program. Certain changes can make your computer work incorrectly.

 

NOTE: Before you change BIOS Setup program, it is recommended that you write down the BIOS Setup program screen information for future reference.

Use the BIOS Setup program for the following purposes:

  • Get information about the hardware installed in your computer, such as the amount of RAM and the size of the hard drive.
  • Change the system configuration information.
  • Set or change a user-selectable option, such as the user password, type of hard drive installed, and enabling or disabling base devices.

Boot menu

Press <F12> when the Dell logo appears to initiate a one-time boot menu with a list of the valid boot devices for the system. Diagnostics and BIOS Setup options are also included in this menu. The devices listed on the boot menu depend on the bootable devices in the system. This menu is useful when you are attempting to boot to a particular device or to bring up the diagnostics for the system. Using the boot menu does not make any changes to the boot order stored in the BIOS.

The options are:

  • UEFI Boot:
    • Windows Boot Manager
  • Other Options:
    • BIOS Setup
    • BIOS Flash Update
    • Diagnostics
    • Change Boot Mode Settings

Navigation keys

NOTE: For most of the System Setup options, changes that you make are recorded but do not take effect until you restart the system.

Keys                     Navigation

Up arrow              Moves to the previous field.

Down arrow         Moves to the next field.

Enter                     Selects a value in the selected field (if applicable) or follow the link in the field.

Spacebar               Expands or collapses a drop-down list, if applicable.

Keys                     Navigation

Tab                       Moves to the next focus area.

Esc                       Moves to the previous page until you view the main screen. Pressing Esc in the main screen displays a message that prompts you to save any unsaved changes and restarts the system.

Boot Sequence

Boot sequence enables you to bypass the System Setup–defined boot device order and boot directly to a specific device (for example: optical drive or hard drive). During the Power-on Self-Test (POST), when the Dell logo appears, you can:

  • Access System Setup by pressing F2 key
  • Bring up the one-time boot menu by pressing F12 key.

The one-time boot menu displays the devices that you can boot from including the diagnostic option. The boot menu options are:

  • Removable Drive (if available)
  • STXXXX Driv

NOTE: XXXX denotes the SATA drive number.

  • Optical Drive (if available)
  • SATA Hard Drive (if available)
  • Diagnostics

NOTE: Choosing Diagnostics, displays the ePSA diagnostics screen.

The boot sequence screen also displays the option to access the System Setup screen.
