how to enter the BIOS

Post by Guest » Wed Sep 24, 2003 12:56 pm

I have an old Gateway 2000 486 and I cant figure out how to enter the
BIOS. I am trying to add an internal modem and I need to see the IRQ info.
There are no directions on what key(s) to press when the machine comes up.
As it is coming up it displays:

Local Bus ATI ULTRA PRO, PN 113-19500-100

Phoenix 80486 ROM BIOS PLUS v 0.10 GLB01

Gateway 2000 Local Bus BIOS

I have tried pressing all the function keys and delete with no success.

Any ideas?

Thanks

George

Try <CTRL><ALT><ESC> all together.

What I had written was:
Try the control alt and esc keys, all together.
