    Trying to get into the bios on a Dell Deminsions L500cx. Tried everything f2, esc, del. Nothing gets me into the bios setup. Any ideas?

    thanks

    F2 should do it. You may want to try an external keyboard if you are using the laptop keyboard.

    Dell site says
    "Enter the system setup program as follows:

    Turn on (or restart) your system.

    When the blue Dell logo appears, press <Del>.

    If you wait too long and the operating system begins to load into memory, let the system complete the load operation. Then shut down the system and try again. "

    Hope that helps.
