    Had a support tech from Creative give me a # of tasks to complete in BIOS, in order to try & locate the source of a sound card click & pop problem. Trouble is, I can't remember how to get to this stuff (he wanted me to check for AGP Apeture size, VGA Pallete, Peer Concerrency, PCI Concurrency, PCI Slot speed & Latency, Memory Hole, PNP OS, etc.) I know this is a boot sequence. Anybody with any ideas? Thanks.

    When you first power on the PC, you should see instructions displayed on the screen to enter "Setup". It's usually done by immediately pressing the DEL or F1 key.

    And <a href=http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?threadid=39456>here </a>is a partial list of the different PCs and the keys that you need to press to get into Setup.

    Let us know what happens.
