    How do I enter setup on a Dell Optiplex GX260? The first screen I see is the WindowsXP screen, and that doesn't say what to press.

    Provided this is what you want... try to repeatedly beat the crap out of the F2 key the moment your computer turns on. It's gonna make a hell of a racket, but that's okay. Tell me if it works.

    No, seriously.

    i don't have one but either DEL or F2

    turn on power switch and keep tapping one of
    the two keys until you get into setup or the
    login screen. if you get to login screen then
    shutdown windows, turn off power and turn
    back on thrying the other key.
